To continue the theme of lighting, following last week”s “Illuminating Mad Men” post, and showcasing a variety of vintage styles, here”s a guest post from Joanna, writing for Arcadian Lighting. Her topic is pendant lighting, and she shows a range of decorative pendant styles that complement the vintage interiors. Thanks, Joanna!
Hello, I’m Joanna from Texas. I write for Arcadian Lighting, a terrific spot on the web to find all things lighting and beyond. My job is really cool – I actually get to spend my work days surfing the internet in search of the most delightful interior spaces and latest home decorating ideas. Once found, I assemble them into a guest post to share with blog readers like you.
Just so you know, I’m a nut for vintage spaces. From shabby chic to rustic farmhouse, I have yet to meet a bit of chipped paint I didn’t like. Both of these styles look equally well with a full-blown crystal chandelier and an old collectable gasoline station light. Today, I’ve brought you an array of lighting fixtures–specifically pendant lights in perfectly vintage spaces. Thanks to Karen for letting me hang out with you today. I hope you enjoy my post.
This dining nook features retro appeal with a vintage twist. The pendant above the table goes nicely with the modern vintage dining chairs.
A lovely vintage kitchen with an amazing skirted apron sink gets its glow from two pretty pendant kitchen lights.
This shabby chic dining nook is lit by a single vintage pendant light from above. A great simple space.
A 50s eat-in kitchen would have been swamped by the enormous light fixture but was balanced instead by the high hung artwork.
Two old scruffy (but appealing) industrial pendants work nicely with an equally distressed table and benches.
An farmhouse kitchen has plenty of natural light during the day, but is lit by two strategically placed pendant lights at night.
An outdoor cabana featuring a lovely collection of vintage chairs is lit from above by three large aluminum fixtures.
This eclectic pendant is a mix of industrial with feminine style. Is that possible? Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
