    Wood Lighting Design offers unique timeless designs handmade in Portland, Oregon.

    Julia Weitzer Wagoner, Harry’s daughter, and Julia Weitzer, Harry’s granddaughter, are the crafters, designers, and force behind Wood Lighting Design. For three generations this artisan family tradition has thrived on the mentorship and inspiration of Harry Weitzer, who was a pioneer of mid-century design, with a storehouse of woodworking knowledge, starting them off on this successful venture. Harry enthusiastically motivated them to achieve new heights in the creation of wood veneer lighting. We are proud to continue the family legacy and use that spark to bring WLD’s designs to the world. At a time when people truly value products made in the USA at Wood Lighting Design we are proud to provide made in America, ecological, and hand-crafted lighting.

    We design to a high standard of quality that comes directly from our shared sense of pride, each lamp is an artistic statement incorporating natural materials as a three-dimensional sculpture. The designs utilize bent wood in dynamic tension giving a sense of aliveness to each piece. The light the wood brings gives an atmosphere of warmth and nature as it shines directly through the translucent wood veneer. The grain of the wood veneer varies uniquely, as in nature, giving a one-of-a-kind quality. The luminosity of the frosted acrylic spreads the light beautifully while the contrasting materials artfully complement each other. The aim is to make these products as simple as possible, living up to the mantra “less is more.”
