Just hanging out here looking FABULOUS!!!! WOW! This is a gorgeous Mid-Century Modern dome or pendant hanging light fixture by Lightolier. It is comprised of a striking bright orange enameled metal dome trimmed with a thin white recessed groove surrounding the base of the dome that allows the light to peek through. . A simple but quite eye-catching detail!! The inner dome is white and holds a 3 bulb socket on a white perforated light diffuser. And it bears an interesting and useful feature… depending upon the amount of light you prefer, you can have 1 bulb on, 2 bulbs on, or all 3 bulbs on. Simply turn the white cylindrical knob located in the center of the frosted glass lens to your preferred ambience. The unit is hardwired so when you turn it on at the wall switch, it will be at your chosen setting. Convenient!!! A beautiful white chain extends from a fabulous orange canopy, hooks to a galvanized top ring, and suspends the dome from the ceiling. It screams Mid-Century Modern MAGNIFICENCE and will be incredible in your home whether over the desk in your home office, in a sitting room over a wonderful chaise lounge, or in your kitchen or dining area above your table. And this COLOR!! It is sure to stand out and make a BOLD statement in whatever room you choose!
Lightolier was founded in 1904 by Bernhard Blitzer under the name New York Gas and Appliance Company. In its early years, the company specialized in fancy decorative chandeliers, then shifted to the high-end design and architectural markets in the 1920s. In the 1960s Lightolier introduced the first track lighting system, designed by the late Anthony C. Donato, which was a vertically integrated track, unlike the horizontal tracks of today. During this same period Lightolier began importing European designs, including that of Gaetano Sciolari and another notable success designed by Michael Lax known as the Lytegem series which has a place in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. They were also the first lighting company to introduce digital lighting systems in the 90’s. Lightolier is a Sustaining Member of the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, a founding member of the American Lighting Association, an ally of the EPA Green Lights program, a Partner of the Lighting Research Center, and is still a leading lighting company today.
