Custom Lighting

T.O.M.T.™ custom lighting brings new life to commonly forgotten and underappreciated objects. Made from found objects like discarded umbrella frames, propellers, and hub caps, T.O.M.T.™ lighting designs are conversation pieces made to look good and function well. Tediously handcrafted, each found object is reimagined into artful lighting.

Each piece of T.O.M.T.™ lighting is one-of-a-kind because it is handcrafted from found objects. Rodney Allen Trice works on commission to create furniture smiliar to the chandelier design shown here. Using nontraditional materials, Rodney can design a lighting scheme to fill a room or create playful lighting effects that transform an environment.

About this Maker


T.O.M.T.™ offers imaginative home furnishings and lighting made from found materials. Refitting otherwise discarded objects, founder and artist Rodney Allen Trice gives ordinary items a new lease on life. Rodney began designing and making upcycled furniture in 1988 out of a need to furnish his first apartment in New York City on a budget. His creative interpretation of found objects then planted the seeds of what is now a celebrated collection of distinctive, functional designs.
