Swift and his wife Carol design the beautiful nautical-themed
and colonial-era lamps of the Boston LightWorks. Together
they purchased the company that became Boston LightWorks in 1995
from the 81 year old gentleman who founded it. Prior to developing
Boston LightWorks, Rob spent 20 years in the mail order business.
mainstay of the line are the over 100 lighthouse lamps. Over the
last seven years, the lamp line has grown to include antique spools,
ship's lanterns, windsor chairs, and shorebird decoys. The lamps
are assembled here in Hingham, Massachusetts and many of the raw
materials also originate in Massachusetts. However, now that the
mills of New England have been depleted of their antique bobbins,
the bobbins for the bobbin lamps must be imported from old England.
