Arts and Crafts style lighting ideas needed!!

basketcase-2008January 18, 2010

We are building a Craftsman style home and we want to keep the same theme in our lighting inside and out. Does anyone know of a grouping or family of lighting that has all rooms included in it?

Try Kichler. For instance, their Chicago collection is Craftsman style with both indoor and outdoor fixtures.

Have you looked at They have a lot of beautiful lights that are craftsman in feel. I like their exterior lights that are craftsman (better than the colonial style I'm looking for). We have several of their lights in the house and they are all well made.

A terrific source for all Arts and Crafts resources is American Bungalow Magazine and Style 1900 Magazine. We used the following in our Craftsman-inspired house:

Old California Lantern Company
Arroyo Craftsman -
Schoolhouse Electric -
Rejuvenation -
Hudson Valley - (most reasonable)

In the case of the first four, we customized every light, including shade color, length, etc.... The people at Old California are fabulous to work with as well as the Schoolhouse Electric folks. Feel free to contact me with any specific questions.

We had the luxury of attending the Grove Park Arts and Crafts Conference before our house was finished, so we were able to see some fixtures there and custom ordered a dining room fixture from Old California at the show. It is fabulous.

Denise, you should post pictures of your house. Or parts of it. It's gorgeous. Okay, I'm your sister, but still, it's really well done. You guys worked hard.

Yes, PLEASE show pictures! IÂm an addict. Someday I have to find a real craftsman house.

I did a couple of craftsman rooms a few years back. I hunted ALL over, believe me. I found a website that deals mostly in that style. I bought most of my lights and even a few tables from them. ItÂs a small operation, but choice. Do check it out. ItÂs called The Bright Spot. Run by a retired couple who have a passion for the period. They carry a lot of those brands mentioned above.

If you find a series you like, even if they donÂt have it in stock, they can get it for you.

Forgot to say...for some reason pictures on their site take a long time to load for me. Not sure if it's just me...or small bandwidth on their site. But it's worth the wait, since you don't have to weed through acres of non-craftman lighting.
