The rustic + industrial + vintage trend is huge right now and popping up everywhere from Anthropologie to Restoration Hardware. I’ve felt a connection to the sparse, elegant quality of this look for quite a long time, and I particularly like when everyday, commonplace designs are elevated in a new and modern way that still captures that feeling of nostalgic. It’s the kind of sweet spot I seek out when I’m looking for furniture or accessories to add to our home, and I felt it instantly when I saw these lighting fixtures by Lamp Goods, based in Maine.
The globes on this chandelier are just like any of those that I would have seen on a ceiling fixture in so many of the older homes built in the early twentieth century where I grew up. In that setting, they might look outdated and old fashioned, but grouped together as a chandelier, they look fresh and elegant. I love this piece and can totally see using it in my dining room.
I’m still not tired of vintage canning jars. I have seen them repurposed as chandeliers, but this is the first ceiling mounted fixture like this that I’ve seen. This would be really great on a covered porch, and it’s also available with green jars.
Here they are as a double wall sconce. I think these fixtures would work perfectly with vintage farmhouse or beach cottage decor.
Lamp Goods has several other lighting designs available in this style, including single pendants. Other finish options may also be available. Check out the rest of their shop here.
