By carefully teaming opaline, frosted, pressed, iridescent, etched, gilded, cut and engraved glass shades of different styles, shapes, colours and sizes, we create contemporary nostalgic pendant compositions which celebrate the beauty of hand crafted vintage glass lamp shades of past eras. Below, you will find some proposals created with the French vintage lamp shades we offer.
We try as much as possible to re-use original shade galleries and other reclaimed fittings, which are cleaned up ready for a new life. However, all electrical components are new and answer to today's wiring standards. We aim to use only the most essential parts in order to show each delicate glass shade exactly as it is, uncovered by metal caps or other decorative fittings. Each pendant composition is supplied as a complete, ready-to-install light unit and includes:
shade galleries and clips where required
200cm braided textile flex per pendant
multi-outlet ceiling canopy
Components and flex are available in several colour finishes.
We use LED bulbs for our photography - spotlights for larger shades as they give a crisp direct (down)light, perfect for use over a dining table, bar or kitchen island, and small pygmy bulbs for small or shallow shades. But we appreciate that everyone prefers a different type of light source and quality and so all our vintage lighting is supplied without bulbs.
