Nothing is more exciting than designing new items. At Turn of the Century Lighting, many of our designs have been inspired by traditional fixtures from the Victorian, Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts, Industrial, Edwardian and Art Deco eras to name a few. Our finishing and quality craftsmanship has made these designs come alive.
With renewed interest in the shapes, styles and colours of Mid Century Modern Design, we have begun to explore new designs, and restorations on great pieces from this era. All of these lighting fixtures are designed and handcrafted by us. Below are a peak of some of our great new items!
This incredible double "C" pendant light was inspired by offset Mid Century fixtures that played with form to create interesting geometric shapes. The initial design concept was based off of a more simple midcentury pendant that was hanging in our stock area for many years, that we loved, but was beyond restoration. Handcrafted and finished in Satin Nickel.
Many people have 8'-0" ceiling heights, especially in midcentury, and modern spaces, and these fun close mount fixtures are a great way to get beautiful light with the clean organza material, and the playfulness of many of the tiered double shades at the time. We are looking forward to creating these with additional colours and materials!
This fixture was created specifically for the Marilyn Dennis Show in Toronto and was inspired by many of the Mid Century sputnik designs created by companies such as Lightolier in the 1950s and 1960s. For this particular fixture, we finished it in a golden brass finish to replicate a popular finish at the time. We have created this fixture in many different configurations, finishes, and lengths since our first one, but the result is always spectacular.
As a sneak peak.... One of the fantastic designs we are currently working on is inspired by many of the amazing designs created by the Mid Century Majestic Lighting company with their wonderful forms, and fun materials. The designs have our own trademark touch, and modern interpretation, but we couldn't be any more excited. StayTuned!
