“Totally unique” – “Breathtaking” – “Nothing else like it”
About Kathleen Caid
These are phrases commonly heard describing the artistry of Kathleen Caid. Using vintage fabrics and antique lamps, Caid creates one-of-a-kind period lighting fixtures that defy description. Her work is available in a few stores in Los Angeles, Carmel and Las Vegas. Since each item is personally designed by Ms. Caid and created completely by hand using antique and vintage materials, Antique Artistry lamps are always in short supply.
Caid is best known for her imaginative shades which range from whimsical-fancy to gothic-elegance. She combines a college degree in fine arts with a collector’s love of quality antiques to create her innovative and original pieces. Celebrity collectors include Cher, Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith, Kenny Loggins, Henry Winkler, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilerra and Steve Martin.
“I get my inspiration from the beauty of the antiques and fabrics that I work with,” says Ms. Caid. “By using appropriate vintage materials and designs, I give them new life. I love the quality of period craftsmanship, and I try to remain faithful to the spirit of the piece, but the final result is a totally unique and rejuvenated article.”
In addition to floor and table lamps, Caid also makes sconces, chandeliers and specialty lighting.
