Did we find these in an old barn or an old factory or office someplace, clean them up and rewire them? Nope, they’re brand new! Picking up on the retro-recycled trend, these light fixtures all look like they could have been salvaged from found parts.
The charming rustic finishes, old-fashioned looks and handsome utilitarian proportions look great in a variety of casual-traditional spaces, especially blending well with vintage-inspired workspaces, country kitchens and dining rooms, garages, game rooms, bars or restaurants.
Keep in mind these fixtures will look nicest with a low-wattage or even vintage style light bulb, so they’ll work best as an accent light rather than the main light source in a room. Stick to metals, white, clear or amber shades for an authentic effect.
The top fixture has a handblown recycled glass shade inspired by old electrical insulators and the electrical cord around a slender rope. It’s the “Morse Pendant Lamp” from Cisco Brothers
and retails for around $720.
For a lot less money you can get a similar look with offerings from Rejuvenation House Parts’ newest “Industrial” collection,
inspired by beautiful warehouse and workspace fixtures from the early 1900s. Pictured here is the “McCoy”
which retails for around $105 without the shade. Plus, you can choose from a large selection of shades to customize your look!
The last image is the also inexpensive “Galvanized Topless CGU Pendant” from Dog Dish Lights
which retails for around around $120. They also sell the real barn lights, including painted and galvanized metal finishes and simple but elegant multi-lamp schoolhouse style chandeliers.
Until next time!
