Equire about this product

Origin: France

Vintage French lighting is often defined by the industrial lights of Jielde and Mapelec, but lighting companies throughout France have historically designed and manufactured lights for all applications. This variety is reflected in the styles of lights we salvage and restore - from the decorative Art Nouveau and Art Deco to the classic harder edged, clean-lined industrial aesthetic.

Restoration

Restoring a light doesn’t necessarily mean making it ‘like new’. We often preserve the visible signs of age, such as spots of wear and patina, to give a hint about the light’s first story. Or we might reveal the bare metal, accentuating its build and design.

"Genius Full Circle initative"

Love the lights, love your ethos. Absolutely what more companies need to be doing. I have my Retro Czech Ceiling Lights (V2) in my dining room and the spray of light they give off is gorgeous and unusual.
