Ask Design Mom: Kitchen Light Fixture

August 15, 2007



Ask-Design-Mom-Question:
Hello!
I’m hoping you can help me. We have a cape cod style home that has kind of a cottage/woodsey feel. Our kitchen cabinets are simple and painted Cotton Whisper white. We have butcher block countertops and use an old
dining room table for our kitchen table. I have been trying to find a light fixture that will go with our style and not exceed $200(ish) for over said table. Any thoughts of where to look? The light over our kitchen sink was bought
for $9 on eBay (milk glass, aged brass… perfect.) Currently I troll eBay- keyword vintage ceiling light & Bellacor. Thanks much, Tracy Chrenka

Answer:
Aaah. Vintage lighting. What a fun thing to hunt for! Obviously, your ebay searches are a super-smart place to start. There are also online vendors who specialize in selling vintage lighting — not reproductions, but actual pe
riod lighting. Google is your fastest way to find them. VintageLighting.com and Eagle-Emporium.com are two that offer restored/refurbished fixtures. Let vendors know what you’re looking for and they’ll email you when something comes into their stock that you might like.

Depending on what style you’re interested in, Schoolhouse Electric (www.schoolhouseelectric.com) has some really cool vintage reproduction pieces.
