will you turn on the light?





i think it's safe to say i'm obsessed w/funky light fixtures. i love it when people are creative with lighting...using vintage fixtures can really define a space and placing lights that aren't "typically' suppose to be in a certain spot really gets me excited. here are perfect examples of lights that make me super happy and slightly envious....

I think the last image is from Quality Meats (A well designed restaurant in NYC)! I love the bathroom with the dark green paint.

The BEST place to find vintage industrial lighting is at Obsolete in Venice California, but they are CRAZY expensive:

Great images. Lighting has turned into one of my weaknesses as well. Can't wait to see what you scored for $15 at Habitat!
