Chaos Lamps

Collection of unique one-of-a-kind lamps made by Chaos Woods. Terry and Sarah work together to create these very special artistic home furnishings. Contact us, 512-945-9925, for custom themes and colors. We'll make one to fit your style!

We only use high quality hardware. Primarily, reproduction vintage including a cloth covered twisted wire 18 gauge (18/2) cord with a diameter of 6.5 mm, or about 1/4". The lamps take standard household bulbs. We recommend 13 - 23 watt CFL florescent bulbs available at grocery stores, and use standard 2-prong un-polarized AC plugs.

Each lamp base is made of wood turned on the wood lathe or carved in the shop. The shades and bases are all hand painted or stained. They are then coated with a sturdy polyurethane and Crystal clear coat to resist aging.
