the same day i bought my fake saarinen tulip table and chairs set (they’re actually “krueger,”) i also nabbed a great little entryway table/console table.  it’s a hekman.  boy, that was a banner day for finding good stuff at el next-to-nothing-o prices.  i hopped onto ebay and another site selling hekman and found nary a piece of furniture that resembled this.  everything seemed ornate and frilly.  strange.  i must’ve gotten my hekman from their better design days.


and along with that, got an industrial looking table lamp.   from what i can gather, it’s an m.g. wheeler lamp (a version of the “sight light?) 


i like the masculine feel of it.  there might as well be something male in this house.  sad it’s got to be lamps.

and don’t even ask me how to change that light bulb.  i’ve had it for a few weeks now and can’t figure it out to save my life.  sure, great looking design, but c’mon.  changing a light bulb shouldn’t be that taxing on my brain cells.

    Hope you figured it out. I just found one in the trash yesterday and I’m in the proceess of cleaning it up. The top nut unscrews and the “lid” comes right off so you can dust and change the lightbulb.

      i did figure out the lid removal. ok, well, my dad figured it out. on mine there’s no need to even unscrew that top screw…it’s just simply a “lift off.” i also didn’t realize mine adjusted to a full size floor lamp. i kinda love this lamp to pieces.

      and you – nicely done on the trash find! it doesn’t get any better than free coolness.

  2. Hi – just ran across your post while looking for info on my new old lamp! Yup, found one like yours at an estate sale, and like you I couldn’t figure out how to get at the bulb. Thanks for the info. Now that I can snap off the top shade we’ll be able to rewire this puppy. Love your console table too!

      hey now – look at you being all responsible with the rewiring. me, i live on the edge but keep a fire extinguisher close by and fresh batteries in the smoke detectors.
