Coe Studios celebrates its 25th anniversary! Jerry Coe, pictured at left, founded his shop in Berkeley, CA in 1984. Soon thereafter, a client requested handmade lighting for his garden. The Coe Studios Garden Lamp was born, the lighting line grew over the years and continues to grow today. We are proud to have provided the very best in quality and craftsmanship along with top-notch customer service. Since day one, all of our lamps have carried a lifetime guarantee. We are excited to continue providing the highest level of dedication to our customers into the future. Thank you for your support!!

On September 1, Jerry was blacksmithing at illumigarden for their monthly Artwalk. Pictured at left is Kurt Weimer, blacksmith extraordinaire, a member of the Coe Studios team.

People came by to meet the artists, watch them at work, and have a glass of wine.

The event and Jerry’s beautiful Dragon Gates were the subject of Marin Magazine’s blog on Home and Design.

Introducing the super-solid Coe Studios Footlight with 1 12V LED bulb or 2 120V cool white LEDs. We have been experimenting with LEDs since their introduction. However, a good 120V option has been hard to nail down. Recently we found a bayonet bulb with a small form factor, but it just wasn’t bright enough. In order to get good output and coverage, we added a second socket to our Solid Bronze Footlight. Now, the light is even and cool in our newest lamp: Model FL-LED. The bulbs emit no heat and last 50,000 hours. This is a great option for customers who never want to change a bulb again or are concerned about the heat of the lamp. These bulbs look especially nice with the new glass lenses, available in clear or frosted. The frosted lens gives an “icy fuzz” quality to the light. Please contact us for more details.

California Heritage Council has given an award to the Gravity Car which was built by Coe Studios: “West Point Inn (circa 1904) + Gravity Car Mt. Tamalpais, Mill Valley. The Inn is the sole surviving structures of a once famous and vibrant scenic railway where steam trains met a stagecoach for the beach. Today it operates more like a hostel than an Inn. The Gravity Car carried passengers down the mountain, a bit like a mountain roller-coaster, to Mill Valley.”
