Funky Lighting

I absolutely love lighting! Nothing say funky like a unique lamp. And, if a room needs a little drama or pizzaz, injecting that perfect fixture does wonders. Suddenly, a ho-hum room becomes a show stopper! Here are a few favourites I found during a recent visit to Architectural Antiques, 356 Richmond Road, in Westboro -- home to antique and reproduction fixtures. I love them all, but my favourite is definitely the flower chandelier made of glass. Sooo beautiful when it's lit up -- this photo doesn't do it justice. And, just so you know, the first fixture is made of glass crystals, and the last two are made of shells.

When we went trick or treating this year, one of the houses had the most magnificent round sparkling chandlier. I tried to linger at the door when the kids were getting their candy, but I was not bold enough to ask if I could examine the chandelier close up. Oh well!

Love your examples.

I would put a funky hanging fixture in every room, if I could get away with it. Cool finds.
