Combining old and new


There's no need to think that, because something is 'old, 'traditional', 'heritage' that it can't benefit from a technical upgrade. Here's an example of a Victorian/Edwardian classic, usually fitted with a glass globe, concealing whatever low energy version of a 60W lamp fits best. Except I've reduced the overall 'bulbous-ness' of the beast and turned it into a bit of attrative steam punk design (as i believe the younger desig community might call it) bvy replacing the white globe with a simple LED panel.

Its in one of those interiors that will forever speak of a nostalgic past - the formal dress hire emporium for the younger male approaching marriage.

The singlemost important place in this type of environment is the mirror and the timeless internal dialogue; 'what do I look like in this monkey suit . . .and what on earth do I think I'm doing?' - or words to that effect. The wall bracket provides the toplight, while the flanking light strips fill the space from top hat to polished boots.
