Fishing Pole Floor Lamp

The T.O.M.T.™ Fishing Pole Floor Lamp brings new life to commonly forgotten and underappreciated objects. Made from old fishing poles, this lamp’s carefully balanced design took time to create and assemble. With simplicity in mind, Rodney honors both mid-century modern aesthetics and the original identity of each repurposed object as he creates his one-of-a-kind furnishings.

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 similar to the lamp design shown here. Using nontraditional materials, Rodney can design a lighting scheme to fill a room or create playful lighting effects to 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.
