This particularly rapid unintelligible patter isn't generally heard, and if it is, it doesn't matter.





If your house is newly built or newly remodeled, the light fixtures will be whatever's cheapest at the builder's warehouse. Right now (2021) the vogue is boob lights. Here is a boob light.


One generation's glory is another generation's curse, and vice versa. No doubt in 50 years boob lights will be rare and collectible, like tole chandeliers, or Poul Henningsen.


This thread is for discussing the lights, both hard-wired and plug-in, in your home; what you love, what you hate, what you're trying to find but can't. For discussions on how to install lamps, you probably want the wiring thread, right next-door.

Some places to buy interesting lamps:
Vintage Hardware and Lighting: reproduction and restored lamps from the mid-1800s onwards. Also sells parts.
https://www.lightology.com/ Modern designs.
Rejuvenation (used to be Rejuvenation Hardware): Modern and vintage-inspired lighting
https://www.oldcalifornia.com/ Reproduction Prairie/Arts and Crafts style
https://www.authenticdesigns.com/ Reprouction colonial, with electric-powered candles.
https://www.vinterior.co/ UK

Some places to buy parts to repair lamps:
Antique Lamp Supply
Grand Brass Lamp Parts
https://vintagewireandsupply.com/
https://www.antiquelampco.com/LampParts.htm

This post reflects my tastes; I'll add other suppliers goons recommend.
