Elektra Steel's First Stockist: Paxton Gate

I'm excited to announce that my dodecahedron floor lamp is now available for purchase at Paxton Gate, both online and at their retail location in San Francisco's Mission District.

The dodecahedron floor lamp, nestled amongst feathers, eggs, terrariums, and other curiosities at Paxton Gate in San Francisco.

If you've ever strolled down Valencia Street, I'm sure you've noticed their striking window displays. They specialize in taxidermy, skeletons, rare insects, exotic plants, and succulents: "treasures and oddities inspired by the garden and natural sciences," in their words. Totally up my alley.

Another shot of the lamp.

Paxton Gate has actually been one of my favorite stores since I was in ninth grade -- I would occasionally stop to explore their charming and macabre curiosities on my way home from high school. So, you can imagine how excited I am to have them as my very first stockist!

I recently got introduced to Paxton Gate by my friends Vinit and Spencer at The Pricerie. The Pricerie's mission is to connect makers with appraisers in order to help them price their work. This is a much-needed service, in my opinion: every artist and maker I've talked to has struggled with pricing.

Anyway, I submitted my geo planter to be priced, and one of the five expert appraisers they matched me with was Michael Levy, Creative & Operations Director at Paxton Gate. He saw some of my other work, asked Vinit and Spencer for an intro, and the rest is history.
