BOB GAROFALO


After nearly forty years in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century restoration business,  I felt there was a need for quality, authentic reproduction lighting with attention to antique finishes, aging techniques and early American detailing. To fill this void I began handcrafting wall sconces and chandeliers, both candle and electrified, that incorporate all these features. My lighting is in many homes  in New England and has been featured in Early American Homes magazine.

All lighting is completely hand made by hand. No two sconces or chandeliers are exactly alike.  The chandelier hubs are made from new or antique turnings.  Hub finishes vary from old turnings with natural wood patina to an antique painted look in historic colors.  Sconces, as well, are made from both new and antique tin. Finishes vary from antique to a very primitive rust finish.
 
 Lighting has the appearance of a 200 year old device!

My work can be seen at the Pleasant View Gallery located at 295 Water St. in Addison. The gallery is open by appointment or by chance, 483-4381.
