Custom Floor Lamps for Ken Fulks Casa Grande

When charged with making custom floor lamps for designer Ken Fulk’s tribute to Mexican Modernism Casa Grande project, owner David Calligeros got to work, collecting two large sections of driftwood from the banks of the Hudson River to be used for the body of the lights. Our engineers and fabricators worked together to create the perfect hardware and base that would act as the supportive skeleton of these large, sculptural pieces. More about the Casa Grande in the November 2018 issue of Architectural Digest is HERE.

Custom Spotlight – A Look Into Our Process

CUSTOM SPOTLIGHT Tasked with making a family of traditional wall lanterns, we took our clients Milanese design inspiration and scope of work and brought the project to life starting with pencil and paper drawings. Working part by part, process by process, through all of the engineering challenges, the hundreds of disparate parts and different craft techniques coalesced into a unified whole.

In the end, it’s really all about the details! Finials, scrolls, leaf castings, all hand-finished in a mottled dark verdigris patina were added to the traditionally-inspired frame holding restoration glass.⁠ The fixtures now grace the facade of a classical limestone San Francisco home where their patina will continue to deepen over time. Perhaps passers-by will ask themselves what early 20th century architect built this place 100+ years ago.


*** Remains has a full time team of product design engineers, an educated team of helpful account managers, 24 years of experience in historic craft technique as well as state of the art manufacturing, experience in multiple levels of prototyping + mock ups and project management to deliver quality, on time, and on budget for projects ranging from $10,000 – multiple millions. ***⁠

Heron : Versatility in form, function and scale

The Heron family of lighting is our modern distillation of the Traditional English foursquare lantern, stripped down to a sharply detailed rectangular frame of brass bars. Available as a ceiling lantern, wall mount or pier light, Heron lighting remains a client favorite for its versatility in both interior and exterior projects.
