Antique lighting is difficult not to love. The beautiful lines, wonderful designs, imaginative embellishments or the still modernistic, avant-garde styles from the 20's simply instill a sense of unquestionable taste and style. Mixing modern and antique influences can bring a home together with a warmth a purely modern look may lack. Antique electric lamps have pieces that are distinctive and notable right away, little parts to the hardware that set them outside of modern collections. They often have touches of sophistication and unrivaled appeal that today's lamps and lighting miss.
