Every year countless wine and alcohol bottles end up in landfills along with tons of premium hardwood. Seattle-based ChicWatts reclaims and upcycles these materials into unique, artistic lighting solutions designed to brighten up any space. By combining eye-catching metal and glass, these sculptural lights are reminiscent of another era, and serve to be seen as much as they illuminate.

The American made lights wear their brass and iron fittings as a tribute to the industrial history of the country and were named a finalist in the Martha Stewart Made in America competition. Their “Mother Nature meets Steampunk” designs can be customized on demand and many models include secondary features such as built-in USB ports. Currently, ChicWatts eco-friendly lights are already available in the U.S. and Asia and can be shipped to the EU.
