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.

Just Can't Go Wrong with Traditional

If you're ever unsure of what 'style' of lighting to choose for your home. Well you can never go wrong with staying with the classics. Look at this traditional schoolhouse light that blends beautifully with the rest of the decor. So easy and transitional. A perfect fit!

Vintage or New?

I love some of the new products that are the filament Edison inspired, squirrel-cage light bulbs. These light bulbs give such an authentic, vintage look to any light fixture.
A client sent me the picture below with the variety of true vintage pendant lights. She asked me to create a similiar looking pendant.
So, here's my design. I'm often hesitant to use the new rayon, twisted wire that is available because with a glass shade you're beginning to add weight. And that can be dangerous as the twisted wire is not U.L. listed. So I stayed with the black pendant wire.
