Ian Sargent Phillips


The Creator, Owner and Designer of "i love lamP Lighting" (formerly A gnome called iP Creations) is an Actor/Filmmaker/Designer based in Chicago. He has a large collection of work ranging from personal home lighting, to custom serving trays, to lighting designed for bars and restaurants. 


He has many years of experience in Creative Design and Event Catering. He comes from a father who has trained him in the art of construction and remodeling and a mother whose background is deeply rooted in artistic endeavors. Together these two created a man, nay, a gnome who is not only obsessed with the beauty of art and nature but also equipped with the knowledge of how to use these talents to create something new out of something old. 


We are a small business Now Based in Los Angeles! We design and manufacture in-home lighting and decor made from repurposed and recycled materials as well as provide the rental and temporary installation of lighting decor for weddings and events.


Starting out on the west side of Chicago, I Love Lamp Lighting began doing business out of a garage selling pieces on-line for 7 years before branching out into the wedding industry. We quickly grew in the chicago land area partnering with local businesses and vendors such as,



Goose Island Brewery, Chicago staple and now a world wide brand.




South Loop Loft, an eclectic resale

store that features designs from

all over the world. 



Green Wedding alliance, one of the leading groups of environmentally friendly vendor organization in Chicago.



In 2020 we made the, very conscious and totally not forced by a pandemic,  decision to relocate to Los Angeles where we look forward to the next chapter of our story. 

For additional examples of our work please visit our Etsy Store

We contracted i love lamp lighting to do a custom installation for Chitown Rising. It was last minute but Ian and his crew did an amazing job. They had it designed and completed just in time.

Love this tray! Sturdy, attractive and such a great value. My only complaint is that the seller didn't reveal his/her location, which is the same city I live in; would have been happy to pick up this item and save myself the shipping costs.
