What do you do with yourself on a rainy Saturday when the laundry is done, the kids are happily playing Wii, and you can’t possibly mow the lawn? How about settling into this cozy reading nook with that new book you got for your birthday? This neat little space has it all — plenty of reading material nearby on the shelves, comfy pillows to lounge against, even a sailfish to spark daydreams of that Bahamian vacation you’re always talking about. And what reading nook would be complete without a good light to read by? This lovely light adds a vintage touch to the space and is much like our Flared Milk Glass Shade. This vintage light is part of our collection of Glass Shade Pendants which also includes Holophane Glass and Cased Glass pendants.
The Flared Milk Glass Shade has a mid-sized shade that is more than nine inches wide, and it comes with either a brass or nickel socket plus an authentic cotton twist cord. The unfinished brass socket features a turn key while the polished nickel comes with a knob. The cotton twist cord comes in your choice of four colors to match your decor and in seven different lengths. The real fun begins in picking out which Nostalgic Edison Style Light Bulb you want to complete the look of your vintage fixture! These fashionable bulbs come in a variety of shapes, wattages, and styles all of which emit a warm glow and a true antique vibe to your light.
If you’re looking for a vintage light that’s a bit smaller and would work as an accent over a hall table, in a half bath, or perhaps at a small desk, consider the 8″ Fluted Milk Glass Pendant which comes with a cotton twist cord or the even smaller 7″ Vintage Milk Glass Shade. Both offer loads of vintage style with a very focused beam of light.
