Back in November, we restored a ton of antique slipper-shade fixtures and I wrote a little blog post about their beauty, rarity, and unfortunately what happens when a shade breaks. In response, I received dozens of emails from customers looking for replacements, as well as, customers sharing stories and images of their personal slipper-shade fixtures and how much they loved them.
Since it was such a popular subject, we decided to do it again. Except this time we expanded the theme to include a variety of fixtures that were made during the Art Deco era. (Of course, we also released more slipper-shade fixtures – just for fun.) When I started delving into our shelves of catalogs, I was delighted at how many fixtures were made during this era. And although different than slipper-shade fixtures, they were equally as exciting. Below is my favorite from this collection.
Take a look at what our company historian, Bo Sullivan, has to say about this little beauty. His explanation is awesome and made me love it even more, but really I love it because it is super cute. And although green shades sometimes cast a slightly strange hue, this one is warm and fantastic.
This collection of Art Deco lights is really lovely and you can take a look at it on the New Arrivals section of our Restored Antiques. I would love to hear what you think of these fabulous lights and see photos of your own Deco lights. It is always so much fun to see these lights installed in people’s homes and to see images of lights that I have seen in catalogs, but only dreamed of seeing in real life. If you have one of these awesome Art Deco lights and wouldn’t mind sharing an image, I would be so grateful if you would send a photo to email@example.com.
Thank you all so much, and I really hope you enjoy this collection.
