What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Mid-Century Modern Getaway
Vintage lighting is a common theme throughout the house. DeLisle was able to achieve a quirky sense of elegance in this house, that isn't always attainable with more standard lighting choices. A rug from Morocco adds a touch of international flair to this vignette, where a vintage sconce and lamp illuminate photography by Catherine Wagner.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Vintage Lighting Shines
Wall sconces are favorites source of accent lighting. The more sculptural, the better. When accompanied by a vintage table lamp, a weathered sideboard, and Moroccan runner this mid-century look goes global.
Decide whether you're looking for style, value or both. Are you a collector looking for an investment piece, or are you simply looking for a fixture to add a unique decorative flourish? If it's the former, limit your shopping to reputable antiques dealers and specialty lighting stores, both of which should be able to give you the provenance, pedigree and other important details about fixtures that interest you.If you're more interested in aesthetics than monetary considerations, you may find bargains at flea markets, garage sales, thrift stores and online auction sites such as eBay. Just be prepared to do some additional rehabbing — the lighting you choose may need extensive cleaning, finish restoration or repairs.

Clean, simple combination of color, texture and objects arranged in a unifying way to give interest in an otherwise boring corner in a room. Objects used look to be very ordinary as a single piece but combined as a group make a pleasing statement.
