An early & expanded Thursday Three – Vintage lighting

DSC01595 - Copy (2)DSC02194As my regular Thursday Three slot has been thrown into chaos lately, I put forth this bonus post showcasing some of the lighting I have picked up  over the last few years with  the French house in mind. Some works there, some won’t, you will have to wait for the big reveal to see what went in and where.. I will admit the rustic wooden set won’t work but it is beautifully made and would look perfect in a ski chalet in the Pyrenees.

Here are some links to earlier posts featuring vintage lighting-

    Such a shame about the BOOOFFF switches. They always look way better than modern ones.


    • It is

      I found some similar modern versions of the vintage style, but to put them throughout the house would have cost me more than my slipper bath!
      Sometimes, on these projects, priorities have to be decided


  2. Those switches were in the house when we bought it, but due to construction of backplate and restrictions within, there is sadly no way they can be rewired safely-shame!
    As my original Electrician succinctly said “you use,..BOOOFFF! die,”

    Some luscious lights here – I’m a particular sucker for bakeolite switches! The wood baby would indeed look wonderful in a chalet in the mountains …. we have a few here too 😉
