Large kitchen islands, rather than separate dining areas, allow you to entertain while you cook and clean, enabling your chef to be part of the party… and for the party to offer a helping hand. With that in mind, it only makes sense to show your kitchen island a little love with an island light. Good kitchen lighting is the best way to make a large kitchen seem... Read full article

Vintage light fixtures are all the rage right now as much as they were a hundred years ago. I suspect the steampunks are responsible. Steampunk is a trend that has been in the making since the early 90s that exploded in the mid 2000s. Self proclaimed steampunks all over the states are investing in Victorian furniture and fixtures, and modifying their laptops and cell phones to look like inventions from the late 1800s. Movies such as The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Wild Wild West, or the new Sherlock Holmes capture the spirit of steampunk.
