Shawn Carling grew up on a farm. One day, he wanted to get his father something unique for Christmas and remembered that his grandfather used a Farmall 560 tractor. So, when Carling found a Farmall dash, he decided to turn it into a unique lamp. The gift was a big hit, and Carling started to make tractor dash lamps for other farmers who heard about his unique creations through word of mouth. One thing led to another and Carling found himself in the business of making lamps out of salvaged parts.
Carling called his steampunk-inspired creations Machine Age Lamps - and it's easy to see why. These handmade one-of-a-kind lamps are made from industrial and machine salvaged parts - steam gauges, antique gears, and iron pipes - and would look great in any room. These lamps come in many varieties, including farm-, aviation-, nautical-inspired desk and floor lamps. Vintage Edison lightbulbs complete the look.
