About Loftyideas4u:

Years of experience in Interior Design, Engineering, Sales, as well as being featured on HGTV, inspired me to create One of a Kind lighting. Being a designer and looking for special pieces for a space is often very challenging. Making my own lighting is what fueled my business and I now enjoy selling my work to those who love Vintage Industrial design. Big box items are often generic enough to appeal to the mass markets, but owning a Loftyideas4u lamp is a way to incorporate a One of a Kind piece of history into a contemporary lifestyle.

At Loftyideas4u, we are focused on providing unique, repurposed items that designers seek out for special design projects. Our style is Industrial Modern with a touch of Vintage. Our target buyer is one that has an eclectic style and enjoys mixing different materials and re-purposing vintage items. Because our items are One of a Kind pieces, you have to get them before theyre gone. So shop now and continue to check back as we are always adding news products weekly. We strive to have the highest levels of customer satisfaction - we will do everything we can to meet your expectations. With a variety of offerings to choose from, were sure youll be happy shopping with us. Check us out often and like us on Facebook at Loftyideas4u.
