1 OF A KIND TOP 5: Mod Pieces

Upcycled lamps from Mod Pieces at the One of a Kind Show Toronto.

The rebirth of cool and another (mod)el of upcycling ingenuity.

Lia Fagan has landed upon a simple fix for those scads of lamps that turned up in every rec room in the seventies. If you are of my generation then maybe as a kid you were as mesmerized as me at the groovy spins and eddies the ceramic glazes merged into on the bases. And now in a time where wood bases are formed from composite sawdust and metal that resembles plastic these solid staples stand the test of time. They have earned the right to be reborn and renewed for a second chance at life.

Shop for these great one-of-a-kind lamps at www.modpieces.ca.
