Industrial Shades Galore.

With a crew of one, a little electric work got done today... Can you tell I love enamel shades?
There are 2 of these over the kitchen counters of the tenant floor:
And 2 in the parlor kitchen:
The spare bedroom/workroom (where everything needs to be as close to the ceiling as possible or even I would hit my head):
And the basement hall (same height rules apply):
I managed to get a shot of the electrician. Unfortunately it's too far away to really show his glorious helmet of hair...and one of the rare instances he isn't dangling a cigarette from his mouth.
I would just like to point out that we realized that when we turn the kitchen switch on, only 2 of 3 lights go on...when we turn the living room light on the 3rd light in the kitchen goes on....and many more confusing combinations which they insist they did on purpose for my convenience. How thoughtful. Some times I feel as if I'm going completely mad.

  1. Whoa, that's not right. Are these electricians licensed? Are they filing? If you need a good one, try WCK in Bed Stuy. Crazy!

    Love your fixtures.
