With the growing interest in reclaimed, salvaged and repurposed wood, we thought our readers may be interested in some products we found that are available from Troy Lighting. Although not a surfacing material, which is our usual focus, these light fixtures made from reclaimed wood seem to fit well with the recent trend of repurposing materials for a rustic look.
Here are four examples of the Salvaged Wood Style products from Troy Lighting.
Stix (picuted above), which evokes a rustic French country feel, is a slatted wooden drum design finished in antique gold leaf. The distressed finish, reminiscent of barn wood, is accented by hand-worked iron details, including a simple cluster on the bottom with square tubing.
The cylindrical pendant of the Vineyard collection is comprised of solid, twisted handcrafted iron rods arranged vertically and drilled through rows of stained salvaged wooden rings on the top and bottom. A flame tipped candelabra light source is at its center.
Offered in two simple yet distinctive shapes, Fulton features hand-blown, opal white glass in the shape of a vintage light bulb. The glass is attached to an eight-sided, hand-carved, salvaged wood box with rusty wrought iron straps wrapped around it, designed to look like a crate. Fulton is suspended from 10-foot aircraft cable, and the fixture’s diameter is burned into the side and wood slat canopy.
Inspired by the vintage treasure discovered while searching the back roads of America, the Merchant Street collection is reminiscent of early industrial shelving in a wharf-side warehouse. The hand-worked wrought iron frame is finished in rusty iron and edged with horizontal salvaged wood slats. A warm glow emanates from inside its mesh cylindrical core through optional flame tip early electric lamps.
