Mr. Willies is named after the family's love of their golden-doodle named Willie. Owner, David Langille has worked in the heating and plumbing business for over 20 years. Always being hands on he started creating custom Industrial vintage pipe lamps for his home. With so many compliments from family and friends, Dave decided to start sharing his creations with others. Now his lamps are in high demand and he continues to create new designs on a regular basis. Our Steampunk lamps utilize the unique fusion of salvaged antique industrial pipes, Edison Light Bulbs, and modern craftsmanship. Many look as though they were taken straight out of an early American factory with the exception of modern electrical parts. With a combination of warm Steampunk style lighting and aged metal, these lamps have the power to transform any environment into the perfect ambient setting.

Antique meets Industrial

Mr. Willies creates beautiful Industrial style pipe lighting for the everyday consumer. Our product is a bit of antique married to industrial. We are a family owned and operated business located in Plattsburgh NY. All are lamps are designed and produced in the USA. Currently Mr. Willies sells their lamps via Ebay, Amazon, Etsy, Houzz, and Mr. Willies website. We also participate in many of the local craft shows throughout the year.

We are a family owned and operated business. All are lamps are designed and produced in the USA.

Due to the demand for our lamps, Mr. Willies has quickly outgrown our small shop located in our garage in Plattsburgh. We would like to add a shop off of our garage which will allow for production expansion, hiring of employees as well as a store. Many of our customers have requested that we have a store for them to visit which would create a shopping experience for them. 

In addition our tools need to be upgraded to commercial tools as the household tools we are using are no longer suitable for the amount of production we are needing to achieve to fill our orders on time. In the 18 months since we opened, Mr. Willies has had a fantastic response to our product and would like to continue providing these beautiful lamps to our customers.

Mr. Willies also provides custom design work for your lighting needs.
