against the woodgrain: lighting

I’ve always been a fan of marquee-style letters and signs. They seem to sparkle and dazzle in a way that makes whatever space they’re decorating feel special and exciting. Last week, Brenna taught us how to make our own paper marquee letters, but I know some people enjoy picking up something that’s already made, or something on a larger scale. This dramatic arrow light is inspired by vintage signs but is actually brand new and hand-cut from steel and framed in pine. Each arrow is made to order and would be perfect for a vintage movie-style wedding or an office or studio that needs a little shine.
