Golden Lights, Golden Nights

A favourite lighting store of mine, Pine Lighting, had the following lighting on display, the last time I went in. I would love to use these fixtures in a new home………

I have a weakness for light fixtures, and a weakness for gold and sparkle too, in the right setting. Matte gold finishes are quietly working their way back into fashion and I am delighted about it. This finish is nothing like the artificial brass opted for in the 80s and early 90s. (I have seen more than a few people shudder at the mention of that 80s look.)

This new finish is looks warm and worn, more subdued than brass. I have seen the new gold  working with organic subject matter and surfaces, like the branches in the light fixtures below.
