Light-Hearted Design: (Re)Imagined Lighting   Leave a comment

I don’t know about you, but sometimes the gray, dark days of winter get me down.  As a result I find myself yearning for blue skies and sunshine.  Hey we all need a little vitamin D right?  Until then, I wanted to share some really fun and quirky up-cycled lighting I’ve been gushing over.


The image above was featured on Charming Ink’s blog in 2010.  I’m unsure if Mostaz Seed is still producing these, as the link is broken, but I hope so!


This little diddy (above) will “pull” …*cough, cough… at your vintage heartstrings.  The pulley light is designed by Benclif Designs.  They have other up-cycled beauties with this industrial flavor at their Etsy shop.


Ok…so it is a bit foo-foo girly, but hey! I’m a bit girly too. 🙂  The above image is from Restoration Hardware and is featured on  Yep, I know it is not necessarily within our budget at $3295, but the image below sure is!


This chicken wire chandelier is a bit more playful and was submitted to Better Homes and Gardens by Lauren.  Here’s a close-up.

ImagePretty stinkin’ darling don’t you think?  This piece was estimated to run under $40 for those  blessed with a little know-how.

I’ll leave you all with a quote on light by J.R.R. Tolkien:

“May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out.”
