Yes… we were caught like “a deer in the headlights” when we first saw pictures of this amazing chandelier. The lamp is a bouquet using 16 of our original 1915 Automobile Headlight Pendents. The lenses are all antique glass and came from early Model T Fords. Susana Simonpietri of Chango & Co. used the collection of pendents in an East Hampton beach house.  The solution is brilliant and totally unexpected. I’m annoyed we didn’t think of it first.

We’ve commissioned Photographer Peter Tenzer to shoot interior vignettes for our next book. It will feature industrial lighting from EarlyElectrics.com, combined with props and furniture from the extensive Radio-Guy.com collection. All the items pictured are available at our showroom/warehouse. The Early Electrics showroom is housed in a 100+ year old industrial complex. We can’t think of a better backdrop for this project. For further information contact Steve Erenberg at info@earlyelectrics.com

Architects, Designers and Decorators have found us and we’re making it easier for them. Nowadays you can find a Starbucks coffee shop on every corner. On the web EarlyElectrics.com is almost as easy to find. We just opened a new store front on VandM.com and are placing some of our latest finds there. You can also see us at 1stdibs.com and radio-guy.com.


We all know being easy to find is never as important as offering the best. Pictured above is the latest addition to our one-of-a-kind collection of antique furniture. This versatile table is adjustable and can go from a standard table height of 29″ up to a bar table height of 43″. The 200 plus year old table top has a 32″ diameter with 2.5″ thick hand-wrought iron banding and the original 2.5″ thick well-worn wood insert. The wood and iron have an amazing patina that only centuries can produce. The finish was simply hand waxed. The long curved tapering tripod legs are as substantial as the table top. They make a very solid table and still give this piece of industrial furniture a light elegant feel. The table still has the 3 original industrial casters… always a help… SOLD

Note: This table is shown with a glass top option. I thought this table also looked perfect with a glass top. It comfortably holds a 54″ round. If wanted, we can supply a glass top in any thickness or edge detail you require and have it shipped directly to you… crated properly and fresh from the factory. Call for an estimate.


It’s Fashion Week here in New York City and we’re showing one of our own designs, the EarlyElectrics.com T-Shirt. Although the shirts are not for sale there is good news. You can have one for FREE, but only our customers get to wear one of these status symbols.

Radio-Guy has been invited to join 1stdibs.com. Under the Radio-Guy name we will bring the best in antique industrial lighting as well as our strange and oddball mix of antique objects. It’s one more place to find us. Pay us a visit. Steve Erenberg Prop.

Our latest buying trip included Eastern Europe and Paris. As usual we found some wonderful new things. Unfortunately the best can only be brought home in pictures. The lamps pictured above can be found in Prague’s 1911 Art Nouveau masterpiece “The Municipal House”. The elaborately decorative café and restaurants are amazing. In contrast you will also find simple and elegant bare bulb fixtures that were so popular at the time.

This Country Home article appeared a number of months ago but is well done and still worth seeing. We were happy to lend them most of the lamps pictured.
