New Source: Urban Archeology


photo via House Beautiful February 2007

This photo from the House Beautiful website of a wonderfully white Massachusetts kitchen, sparked an interest in those unusual sconces. Leading to my discovery of Urban Archaeology the maker of that striking pair of lights chosen for this space by designer Judith Barrett.

Here are just a few of my favorites from Urban Archeology's online catalogue:

The hanging version of the sconces I fell so hard for.



The last two are budget busters (for me anyway). But a girl can dream...

LOL...I looked at your photo of Atlas and thought, "Wow! That would be great in the entry hall!" And I thought I'd click through and take a look-see...maybe put my economic stimulus check towards it...and quickly saw that I'd need, like, seven more checks to cover it. :-) I still enjoyed their site, though -- what amazing stuff!

Great source - really interesting stuff.

check with your local lighting store, often they are willing to sell floor models for much less. a friend works on high end renovations, and so often clients reject items and they can be found by simple inquiries especially in tough economic times.
See if urban Arch- ever has a floor sample sale?
Squeaky wheel gets the oil.... and perhaps the light!

Ive drooled over this company's pieces since I found out they recreated Helena Rubenstein's bathroom! Its insanely expensive stuff but a girl can dream! Thankfully a lot of "lower" end companies like Restoration Hardware seem to knock off some of their designs.

And naturally, the last two are my favorites!

There is a necklace just like this light fixture,--I think it is by Temple St Claire.

Love them both.

I like the second to the last one. They remind me of my pearl earrings. And I'm sure it would be nice to look up see it as a light source.
