Historic Lighting Restoration

Revive Cherished Antiques with Specialized
Lighting Restoration​

Treasured for their craftsmanship and nostalgic value, antique lighting fixtures accentuate the charm of period homes. But damaged components, corroded frames, faulty wiring and worn finishes can render aging chandeliers, sconces and table lamps unsafe and unattractive. This is where SH Studios comes in.


As a specialist lighting restoration studio with over a century of heritage serving discerning collectors and historic buildings in the region, we are devoted to the sensitive revitalization of vintage lighting pieces. Whether it is your grandmother’s Art Deco chandelier or the Mid-Century teak floor lamps from your first apartment, our master artisans breathe new life into sentimental classics with specialized repairs, rewiring, conservation and customization.

Why Sensitive Restoration Of Vintage Fixtures Matters​

While antique lighting sets the ambiance for period homes, damaged components, faulty wiring, and worn patinas can limit cherished pieces to being decorative items rather than functional accents. This is where our expert restoration comes in.

Enable Daily
Indoor Use

The goal of historic restoration is, of course, to create products that look like the original. In many cases, the original methods of production are a vital part of the design. However, making something that is the same size, shape, and material is only part of the process; additional requirements like making the new fixtures conform to modern building codes and fit within budget limitations are also part of the challenge. With over 40+ years of experience manufacturing hand-made light fixtures, we at S.H. Studios are confident we’ll be able to handle these difficult requirements with ease.
