Moving On: A Set of MCM Light Fixtures

This weekend I’m hanging out at the Vancouver Convention Centre where idsWEST is taking place. And tomorrow night I’ll be attending Blend 2012 sponsored by IKEA. Did I mention this is a gathering of the Canadian Design & Lifestyle Bloggers West? Can’t wait to tell you all about it!

But… last week I promised to let you in on a little vintage stop I’d be making along the way. Here’s the story.

My Dad’s neighbours were doing a major kitchen reno, which meant replacing all their light fixtures.

Enter exhibit A .

Mid-Century Modern 3-Pendant Chandelier

This is their vintage 3-pendant chandelier they were replacing.

And its matching single-pole pendant…

The insert image is the pendant in place before the owners took it down.

They also had a matching ceiling mount fixture.

A set of single pendants that had never been out of the box!

Seriously. The packing tissue was brittle with age!

When I asked what was planned for these vintage beauties, the owners handed the matter over to me!

So without further ado…

If you’re looking for something that doesn’t come along every day, as in this FULL set of matching MCM light fixtures – in mint condition, never been out of the box kind of mint condition, you might want to stop in at Attic Treasures!

That’s where my mystery stop was. And that’s where you’ll find this incredible set of Mid-Century Modern lighting.

Isn’t it fun when a circle like this can be closed? The owners are happy, the light fixtures are off to find another good home, and I got to pop into a store that makes my heart skip a beat! Kinda leaves a smile on my face 🙂

Did I mention, it’s not every day something like this comes along?

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. The paper has a funny story! It was actually the wrapping paper on my hub’s anniversary gift, and I loved it so much I had to keep it! Then when these lights came along, and I wanted to photograph them, I needed a backdrop with a bit of MCM flair! So now I guess I’ll have to frame some of the paper, it has so much of a story behind it! 😉
