Drop of white

I’m absolutely in love with this stunning drop lamp in the window at Zig Zag, of one of my favourite neighbourhood shops that specializes in mid-century modern furniture. Joe Graafmans, who owns the store and curates its offerings, has very good taste and the best modern lighting pieces I’ve seen in the city.

The light fixture I’m featuring here today is made in Italy by Vistosi and is an outstanding piece of art by day and night. As far as I know it’s still for sale ($1,195). I stopped by recently to admire it in the evening:

White Lights at Caviar 20

Well – Troy at Caviar 20 has done it again. He has got some spectacular light fixtures in stock right now. If you ask me, it’s just one good thing after another.

Antique Lights at Caviar 20

Caviar 20 continues to offer an incredible selection of artwork, antique furniture and beautiful sculptures. I am particularly smitten with their unique white light fixtures. Each one tells a story of an era gone by.

First up is a white lamp circa 1970 designed by the well-known Venitian glass-makers, Vistosi.

 Next we have the Danish disc chandelier. I love the sculptural sophistication of this piece.

A third favourite is this unique French art deco octagon chandelier. It adds instant glamour to any room.
