Salvaging Artifacts at Urban Archaeology with Gil

Martha Stewart Living Television

Urban Archaeology in New York City's TriBeCa neighborhood is a six-floor paradise for collectors. Co-owner Gil Shapiro possesses an uncanny eye for splendid pieces to restore or reproduce, often updating designs to the new demands of contemporary use. Today Gil shows Martha a few distinctive items for the bathroom.

At their best, lighting fixtures should be both functional and attractive. Gil guides Martha through his selection of fine sconces, both single- and double-armed, in a variety of finishes. A double-armed sconce looks particularly lovely above a bathroom mirror; typical of his skill for adapting antique pieces to modern houses, Gil has created sconces that don't dangle too low, which would obstruct a medicine-cabinet door.
