Our home has a small bedroom on the main floor that we use as an office. The previous owners who lived here nearly forty years used it as a TV room. At some point these lights were installed; I’m sure that they were the height of fashion at the time.
Our office is a hodge-podge of furniture and has a manly feel. You can read about the details in this post. I’ve disliked these lights for years.
When I purchased new outdoor lights for our kitchen door entrance, I spotted the light below on display and fell in love. It is an outdoor light, but I loved the look and thought that it would work well for our manly office.
Many of the rooms in our home have no lights other than lamps that plug into the wall. I wish I had more places to use interesting lights like these.
Is your home wired for overhead lighting? My late 1950’s home sure isn’t!
