Stone and Sawyer design and hand-produce stoneware table lamps that celebrate 20th-century design. They place the utmost importance on quality and craftsmanship and are committed to working exclusively with American companies and craftspeople. Each stoneware lamp body is handmade in their studio in the Catskill Mountains of New York.
Stone and Sawyer produce each stoneware lamp body themselves with tireless attention to detail. Every lamp body is hand finished, glazed and undergoes multiple firings. They offer a selection of glazes, hand-turned wood necks and bases, fine quality brass hardware, hand-made natural linen lampshades, and cloth covered cords. Every lamp is UL Listed.
As a bespoke lighting company that handcrafts limited-edition lamps and wares, Stone and Sawyer only work with locally-sourced materials.
Designers and artists Julian Peploe and David Ryan are the combined vision behind Stone and Sawyer. They created Stone and Sawyer to satisfy their search for the perfect handmade lamp. Inspired by mid-century design and designers like Otto and Gerturd Natzler and Gunnar Nylund, Julian and David produced their first collection with a focus on integrity and craftsmanship, a philosophy that has shaped the company ever since. As their collection expands so does their design vocabulary with forms referencing both earlier and later era of 20th-century design.
When it came to naming the company, they wanted a name that evoked material. “Stone” refers to material - the stoneware ceramic of their lamp bodies, while “Sawyer” represents process - the sawing of wood used for their wood necks and bases.
Stone and Sawyer lamps can be found in the Smyth hotel in Tribeca and have been featured in the New York Times, Wallpaper, Design Sponge, Martha Stewart Living, Architectural Digest and Domino. Stone and Sawyer was a 2015 Martha Stewart American Made Design Finalist.
