Best of Chicago Design: Inspired Lighting

Northern Lights

Swiss cowbells, Jordan-signed basketballs, and Chinese porcelain vases are just a few of the things these pros have wired up and topped with custom shades. This beloved old Winnetka shop and its lamp artisan extraordinaire, Sam Boulos (here 25 years), are the secret weapons of many prominent designers—Michael Del Piero, Christine Garrett, and Stephanie Wohlner among them. In his immaculate basement workshop, Boulos keeps hundreds of tissue templates for custom shades and bases, as well as boxes full of vintage brass fixtures. The shop also carries lamps by local manufacturer Frederick Cooper.
