From the set of “CBS This Morning” to the public library in Madison, Wisc., the custom light fixtures produced and sold by lighting company Lampa are distinctly North Fork.

Lampa’s owners, artists Cliff Baldwin and Marta Baumiller, have been creating custom light pieces out of their Aquebogue barn turned studio and home since 1997.

The couple discovered the North Fork by accident in 1989 after taking the Long Island Rail Road to the end of the line. They rented and eventually owned a home in Greenport before making the decision to move to the East End full time.
