Kitchen lighting- a concession to the contemporary

julian+wass+white+kitchen+school+house+milk+glass+chrome+pendant+light+island+butcher+block+double+door+refrigerator+subway+tile+backsplashAS you may recall, I am mixing it up at the French village house and adding a few classic contemporary pieces to the antique and vintage mix. This is the chrome & enamel fitting that will be installed over the dining table in kitchen and this image was found on :-ย

This was sourced in M. Bricolage (yet again) and I’m glad I bought it three years before we need it as has now been discontinued. There is a newer version in stock,see below, but it is not quite as big, heavy or funky as mine.

So you see, it does pay to think ahead and BUY IT WHEN YOU SEE IT

    A very dear, now deceased actor friend of mine lived entirely by the philosophy that if you like or indeed love something you should buy it. He is missed, but this is a lovely reminder of him in a strange way. And by the way – you are right, in my humble O if you hadn’t gathered ๐Ÿ™‚

    I completely LOVE your fixture. I think the top part, with just a little nod to vintage industrial is what makes it, and what will tie it into your home. Glad you grabbed that when you did. The new one wouldn’t be the same.

    I’m so smitten with cool lighting fixtures that it just isn’t funny. They’re the jewelry of a room, in my opinion.
