The Retro Bullet Lighting Collection — with molded fiberglass shades — from Hip Haven

fiberglass bullet lights from hip havenDid you know that Hip Haven, well-known as maker of fiberglass bullet planters, also makes bullet lighting with the same style of fiberglass  shades?  Starting with that simple, organic bullet-shape shade gave Hip Haven the opportunity to make its Retro Bullet Lighting Collection quite versatile — the collection includes single sconces, double sconces, pendants, and more, and comes in lots of delicious colors.

My favorite finish (today) is the rattan. Reminds me of some vintage fiberglass sconces I’ve seen in the wild!

The Retro Bullet Lighting Collection by Hip Haven

The Retro Bullet Lighting Collection is Hip Haven’s follow up to our signature planter line. The shades are made from the same versatile compression molded fiberglass and are faithful interpretations of their vintage predecessors in their unique texture, translucence, and durability. Integral fibers, a warm, diffused glow give these shades and appearance distinct from plastic or glass.

I don’t know of any other company making lighting with molded fiberglass shades like this, new, today. Thanks to Hip Haven to adding to our lighting options!

    I have a couple bullet shade floor lamps rescued from thrift stores. A bear to rewire, but well worth it. Luckily there is a lamp supply store near me that had all the esoteric replacement parts I needed.

    These lamps manage to be both modern and classic. I don’t see them ever going out of style.

    Fiber glass will make it sturdy and not so freaky to remove to clean as with glass. And I’m all about the cleaning!

    I wonder if they will ever venture into using these fiberglass cones to make some landscape lighting spotlights and path lights like were made back in the day. I’d be all about some of those!

    I’m kind of losing my mind these are so beautiful. The Deluxe Spun Metal Four-Arm Chandelier over on the website is killer.
