Day 816: vintage lighting
Love all the vintage (and vintage-inspired) lighting in this Hudson Valley home, featured in Country Living.
These pendants remind me of the ones I spotted in a local shop last week (still love them!).
I just adore this one. It really makes the hallway special. Vintage industrial and commercial fixtures abound at architectural salvage shops, but you'll want to have them rewired before installation. If you're the industrious type, instructions aren't hard to come by.
If all of that sounds like a lot of trouble, there are plenty of reproductions available. Schoolhouse Electric makes some great ones.
I also love the idea of a wall-mounted swing-arm sconce in place of a lamp next to the bed. It's a great solution for small spaces that require small bedside tables, not to mention those who like to read in bed.
