Future Antiques: Lighting Made Here

19 May, 2015 0 comments Leave a comment

We believe in quality.

  

Both past and present.

 

That's why we make our own lighting. Or at least one of the many reasons.

 

When picking or restoring old lighting, you always get a sense of the quality paid to the design and manufacture of them. From the smallest embossing to the tiny floral buttons used on the thumbscrews, the level of detail is unmatched. Unfortunately, many of the old lights existing today have been filtered through time and often stand as singular examples where hundreds were once made. Although it would be nice to have a time machine and raid lighting warehouses of the past but we have to be realistic and get our head out of the DeLorean.

 

So that's another reason we make our own lighting.


And selection, don't forget that too.

 

With 12 unique brass finishes available, finishes on our lights can be mixed and matched and each fixture has 12 distinct possibilities as well as available quantities. Our custom selection of ceiling lighting and pendant lighting tops over 150 and our wall sconce selection is at 180. That's a lot of selection and unique designs that can be modified to suit your space.

 

Lastly, there is nothing like making something in the same way it was made 100 years ago. I know it echoes back to quality, but there is a pride in making an antique of the future in the style of today. We're one of the last Canadian manufacturers of fine quality brass lighting and having personally made a number of our lights as well as commissioned lighting for clients, there is no better feeling than seeing your work being loved in someones home. It's doesn't top new papa pride but is pretty darn satisfying in itself.
