March 29, 2009Mid-Century Shopping – Lighting at Local Antique Store
Here are some lamps that we found for sale in a local antique shop. I was so thrilled to walk past the display in their front window, they had tons of Mid-Mod furniture, lighting, dishes and glassware. These are some of the lamps that Hubs and I found to be particularly awesome.
A great 60’s/70’s stained glass lamp. I love the gold and wood accents.
A great 1950’s saucer light. I was pushing Hubs on this for the kitchen, but the $350 price tag kind of put it out of the park for us. And…the grand finale….
An original Sputnik light! This beauty almost had Hubs in tears, and I shed a few myself over the $650 price tag. The strangest thing was that it didn’t have wires at the top, but a PLUG. How the heck is that supposed to work?
Anyway, we had to leave it for another day. But I think we might be seriously considering purchasing a new Sputnik light, rather than waiting for an vintage one…
