On occasion, it has been my great good fortune to find vintage lighting of exceptional quality. As always, I'm struck by the incredible graphic design available to our parents and grandparents - bold, exciting and decorative.
Abundance did not come to the United States until well after WWII - I'd estimate not until the end of the 1950's. So, in the middle class home of the early to mid 20th century, every item of furnishing counted and was expected to contribute to the comfort and visual delight of the home. Today, we are so inundated with possessions we seek invisibility in items of utility. That's not the environment for which the vintage home accessory was designed.
All lighting fixtures sold by Tres Trop, will come to you with newly wired by a professional. There is no "do it yourself" in the mix. Free shipping is not available on purchases of vintage lighting.
