Renaissance Revival

Lori Lester -- Home Accents Today, January 15, 2007

Old World charm gets new life with one of the hottest trends in lighting. Traditional European styling lends elegance to iron accents and provides characteristic warmth, while natural materials and unrefined surfaces add a hand-crafted quality. There is more than a taste of Tuscany in this revisit to the Renaissance.

 Earthy green pottery, hammered metal and wrought iron detailing come together in Austin's Trento lamp, a piece that garners the richness of Tuscany ($200).

The warm glow emitted by The Bradburn Gallery 


 The scrolling, wrought iron chandelier from Murray Feiss's Colonial Manor Collection achieves the illusion of warm candlelight through the use of antique cream scavo glass.

 The warm glow emitted by The Bradburn Gallery's Crestfield lamp extends from the cross-cut linen shade down its twisted amber glass base ($398).
