I've been trying to source things for our potential bathroom remodel as I make a budget for it and over the weekend I came to the line on my spreadsheet for lighting. I started looking around in all the usual online places, trying to stay mostly in the huge lighting Internet superstores and away from Circa Lighting, where I know I'll fall in love with something that's more than I want to spend.
And then I popped over on Etsy and I couldn't believe all the great lighting there now. Between excellent vintage finds (so many popular lighting styles are vintage these days so why not buy an original for less if you can) and really creative handmade lights (that you can usually have customized if you need to) at pretty amazing prices, I spent hours poring through all the amazing options. Plus, I sort of love the idea of supporting small business owners.
Here's some of what I found.
1. Vintage ribbed glass globe, $65 // 2. Vintage French chrome & opaline light, $135 // 3. AION wooden pendant, $142 // 4. Vintage crystal glass pendant, $185 // 5. Brass and mint chandelier, $210 // 6. Industrial ceiling mount light, $130 // 7. Vintage French mid-century four-arm light, $108 // 8. Five-bulb urchin chandelier, $499 // 9. Himmeli light diamond pendant cage, $230 // 10. Loft Tom Dixon beat chandelier, $64 each
Do you see anything that strikes your fancy? I'll be honest, there are a couple vintage lights that I didn't include on there because I'm thinking of picking them up for the bathroom and I don't want someone to snag them first! I didn't include any sputnik fixtures or too many bare Edison bulb fixtures, but Etsy is loaded with them, so if you're looking for something like that, I'd start there.
