Shops We Love: Lambert Et Fils
After years of sitting behind a desk, Samuel Lambert left his office job to found Lambert et Fils, a lighting store in Montreal. At first, Lambert restored vintage light fixtures and transformed unusual objects, like photography tripods, into floor lamps. Today, he designs and crafts his own mod fixtures.
Most of the sconces, pendants and lamps in the shop are sketched and built in the adjoining studio by Lambert or one of his four in-house designers. The fixtures, which hang from the store’s embossed-tin ceiling, blend ’60s-inspired brass with industrial-style exposed bulbs and contemporary touches like red cords or matte black finishes. Set off by the space’s white walls, they have sculptural beauty even when switched off.
Located at 7755 Boulevard Saint-Laurent #101, Montreal.
