I love lighting that is unique and captures the imagination. Inspired by vintage styles, yet imitating the looks of today, are what my lamps are about. Giving a room the focal point it deserves while staying original.

Cozy Light

Keep it cozy with a true vintage canning jar turned hanging pendant. Add an efficent bulb to give it charm and save energy too. This wonderful picture is from a lovely customer and her lovely lighting selection.

'Marry' your light fixture to its surroundings

Here's an example of a gal that knew what she was doing when she purchased this beautiful light. Look at the decor of the room and see how this light fixture just blends in so well, it looks like its always 'belonged'. She chose an original, patina brass holder and socket shell. Then she wisely requested a new socket and wire for safety but to keep with the vintage style, she requested a vintage inspired paddle switch. I think it looks awesome. It doesn't over-power the space and just 'marries' in with its surroundings. Excellent choice Paris!

Minature Chandelier Shines Bright

This is a 'new' light I haven't even made available in my shop yet, but boy does it sparkle. Its like a minature chandelier!

Lights that Sparkle

When you need a good amount of illumination and you want some sparkle, choose vintage globes that have clear glass with lots of deep texture. This way, plenty of light shines through but it obscures the glare.
Here's what one of my customers said about her 'new' lights...
"The globes are all from vintage light fixtures and have been put on simple and clean pendants with wire. I love the way the different glass patterns radiate the light around the room."
