If you didn’t know, everything about houses is expensive. And since vintage and retro styles are en Vogue right now, prices for these styles of items have gone up. Tyler spent a lot of time trying to find a good, classic glass shade for the main floor.
We have sconces, as it’s more period appropriate and I personally don’t like overhead lighting (sensitive eyes). Tyler likes continuity, so the decision about the lighting downstairs was influenced by what we put upstairs. A type of “flow” through the house, one might say. The bases for the lights are a bronze metal and that matches the upstairs lights. But we went with a different shade downstairs.
In this case, a square, frosted, lightly fluted shade. I am not very good at interior design (just keeping things organized), but T has a good eye for all of that.
With this shade style, he feels the dining room light (which will be an overhead light), could match easily and not lock us into a specific shape. I see his point, but my visualization skills are lacking.
What I like is that they are simple and classic.
