There are days I laugh myself silly as I go prowling all over the internet, probing for the most unlikely places to find new sources of products that are *just* over the rainbow in terms of trendiness today. When I find them, I just laugh laugh laugh, because I know they were trendy ‘back when’ — and that soon, enough, they will be trendy again — although the larger, mainstream design world may not be ready for them just yet. 6 p.m. last night was one of those moments: When I discovered the one-, two-, three-, and, yes, four-bulb configurations for these Early American-esque chandeliers tucked away in the Commercial section of Barn Light Electric’s website. Clearly: Steakhouse chandeliers. And I fell out of my chair, all giggly, because I love them!
Got knotty pine? A nook somewhere that needs a little light? Hows about this coppertone beauty? Get yee a vintage Ethan Allen club chair, wrap yourself up in a granny square afghan, and settle in to reacquaint yourself with Dr. Strangelove. Life does not get any better.
The lights come in a variety of finishes. I am partial to the Early American looks – black iron, copper, tarnished looking… I like the one- and two-bulb designs.
But those three- and four-bulbers: Too much. Unless you have a 12′ salad bar in your kitchen.
See all the Barn Light Electric Commercial Lighting here. Made in the U.S.A., yay!
