a light post

If you live in the Bay area, you're probably well acquainted with, the Berkley based, Omega Too . For the rest of you, they're the purveyor of one-of-a-kind lighting fixtures, made from repurposed items.

They've also been, long known for having cool, vintage bathroom pieces: sinks, claw footed tubs, all of those awesome things that peopler { stupid people } rip out of old homes. When I was re-doing my house, we spent a lot of time over there { they're always getting new things in, so it's worth it to pop in often }

Everything you need to make your old house look like new again.

I was looking for some light fixture possibilities for a new job I'm starting. Something interesting, something that gives the space an added sparkle. Like a great pair of earrings would to and outfit. I found a few things that would work nicely.

but check out what  else I found over there.....

I love their repurposed pieces. so clever. 

Antique Mason Jar pendants 

a steam punk pendant

would love a few of these , hanging over a big farm table. 

 these would be perfect in a boy's room.

LOVE! I am converting my son Oliver's room from a nursery into a "big boy" room and those lights are a must! Heading over now to see if they have an online store! Thanks so much for the super find! xo Samantha

Ok so I'm not huge on industrial but I appreciate the re-use. Those lights are really pretty cool. I bet Brooke would love them too.
Thanks for the source.
