ENLIGHTENING


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
I am fascinated by light fixtures. I LOVE looking at them when we're out and about. It is amazing what businesses use for lighting. Some use track lighting or pendant lights, to name a few. Designs tend to be contemporary, traditional or western... although stained glass is pretty popular.  I like a modern look with an old fashioned flair. What kind of light fixtures do you like???

Certainly a variety you featured here. I just like bright light whether it be from the sun or a good light fixture.

It is amazing how many different choices there is. I'm a bit on the old fashioned side of things, I think.

I smile, remembering the many folk who delayed building progress because they 'COULD NOT DECIDE' on the light fixtures.
Neat entry to stir memories. I used to tell the customer, 'Life was so simple with the bare bulb in the ceiling."

But you are absolutely right, it is amazing to see the many styles and designs.
Love it.

Years ago my deceased husband Mel and I used to frequent a café that had some light fixtures made of wood that we liked. He was able to copy it and make one for over my sink. It was still there when I sold my house. Humm I wonder if it's still there. Younger generation probably replaced it.

I love light fixtures as well. It can enhance any room in your house. Some are so spectacular!

Lately I've really like what all the home shows are doing with the mason jar lighting...it's cheap and trendy. Happy Sunday!

I hate track lighting. I like stained glass, or anything antique or old-fashioned.
Heck, I like candlelight, too.....

I have the simplest of fixtures. I like pretty fixtures, but it's one part of decorating I don't especially think about. So enjoy the ones you chose to photograph.

Taryterre,
I think I like light fixtures with a "Tuscany" flare to them. I love light fixtures too, but it seems that they are always the last thing that I purchase. The stained glass ones are so pretty to me.

Love,

I just love most lights, but have to be practical in our old house. I like lights that can be dimmed or bright. Style doesn't matter to much, mine is a pole lamp.

Well of the ones you posted here, I really like the fifth one. I notice light fixtures when we're out too, especially at restaurants.
