Finding amazing items like this vintage light and restoring them to prime condition is one of the ways design is able to be cyclical. The '1950s Shop-Floor Pendant' light is an incredible design that was heavily used in European and American factories.
'Restoration Hardware' is always aiming to preserve as much of the mid-century style as possible, and they did a wonderful job with this product. The vintage light has an aluminum shade that was spun into its current shape and finished with weathered zinc. The light is based entirely on the old high-wattage halogen light designs that were primarily used in industrial settings.
This light is a distinct piece that has the ability to draw attention. With durable and high-quality functionality added to the picture, it will quickly become a focal point in any room.
