Vintage Lighting Featured in This Weekend’s Fall for Vintage Sale

While spring may be all about the cleaning — airing out, opening up, and scrubbing everything in sight — fall is more about cozying in and prepping for the holidays. Sprucing up, switching out, and bringing in something new to perk up the decor. But how about something old instead? If you spend any time browsing design websites, you know that vintage anything is very big right now. You can find a treasure trove of vintage delights at Vintage Barn Lighting and this weekend is a great time to buy as we’re having our Fall for Vintage Sale! From now until Sept. 23 save 10 percent on vintage finds and enjoy free shipping too!

Some of the most popular shades on Vintage Barn Lighting are the Glass Shade Pendants which include the Milk Glass Shades, Holophane Glass, and Cased Glass. Each of these groupings have loads of character with their own distinctive style. The Milk Glass Shades, like the ones pictured here, were first created as early as the 16th century but became most popular 300 years later in France. During the early 20th century, milk glass was associated with America’s most prosperous elite and it remains very collectible today.

Another great vintage lighting find is Cased Glass which also has centuries-old roots. Cased glass typically has two or more layers of different colored glass which are fused together. Our collection includes this beautiful Vintage Green Wavy Cased Glass Pendant that comes with either an Unfinished Brass or Polished Nickel socket. A colored cotton twist cord adds even more visual interest. This classic light would be a lovely addition to a reading nook, over a desk, or in the study.

And if you love the classic RLM-inspired warehouse shades on Barn Light Electric, you’ll find plenty of antique versions on our vintage site. Stem mount pendants and cord hung pendants are all offered and you can save 10% during our sale. Check out the details here and enter the code Fall4Vintage12 at checkout!
