A couple of years ago, when a search for a decent bedside light came up short, marketing executive Jamie Long decided to make his own. He was so pleased with the results that he put the lamp on eBay instead of by his bed. It immediately sold, and Long Made Co. was born. Today Jamie and his wife, Carissa, run their small business from their 1885 shotgun house (think narrow and long) in Houston's Old Sixth Ward. Inspired by vintage pharmacy, dentistry, and jewelry lighting made by longstanding firms such as O.C. White, Faries, and Lyhne, Long Made Co.'s designs are notable not only for their classic American style but also for their solid construction and attention to detail. All lamps are handcrafted by Jamie from high-quality brass or steel, and all machined parts are made in the US. Above: The  Articulating Brass Lamp  has a solid metal arm and a gas-station-style shade in dark aluminum gray; $235. Above: Made of burnished steel and brass, the  Patina Scissor Lamp is one of several extension lamps in the collection. The shade can be angled up or down, and the scissor arm swings left and right and is retractable; $175. Above: Designed to showcase an Edison bulb, the solid brass  Petite Edison Table Lamp also comes in a wall-mounted version, the  Petit Edison Wall Light ; both are $135 (bulb not included). For shaded light, there's the  Petite Wall Lamp with Parabolic Shade ; $159. Above: Inspired by classic midcentury swing-arm lights, the O.C. Industrial Stump Lamp with Parabolic Shade  has adjustable steel and brass parts; $269. Above: The all-brass  O.C. Industrial Wall Lamp with Parabolic Shade  can be mounted on a wall or ceiling; $269.  Above: A look at the vintage-style detailing on the  Articulating Brass Lamp  (the first design shown).
