I too love the light and after hours of searching, this is the closest I have found. Pricey though, http://toclighting.com/makehtm_custom.php?lampnum=pc0143bw#sthash.KfVHdNVt.dpbs

Hope that helps.

I know where it is from. Go to circa lighting website and look under lanterns. I just saw it there. Visual comfort makes it for them.

Would one paint or stain the banister on a staircase? I have an old honey oak staircase that is in need of updating and freshening up. Are all the banisters shown stained rather than painted? Would it be wrong to paint the banister?

Plus the US Government is doing away with oil based paints. So for those projects around the house that require a heavy duty paint it's best to stock up now.

Painting your stairs is very tough to do. You really need to hire a professional, and please - don't "stock up" on oil-based paints, there is a reason why we are doing away with it, it harms our environment, and the off gases are harmful to your health. There are green alternates to oil based paints, but you need to know how to use them. I would save up and hire a professional to paint/stain your stairs. Or, save more and have the stair rails, posts, spindles replaced. Give the existing to a charity like Habitat for Humanity. Good luck with your project!

Hi. I was wondering what the finish on the light is. Is it bronze or pewter....?
Thank you. :-)

Looks like pewter to me, but photos can be tricky. I see a little gold to it, but might be a reflection from the wall color. Doesn't look bronze. Anyone else have an opinion or source for this?
