A bright light

26 april 2017


For the past few months, we’ve been developing a small obsession with vintage lighting here at Maggie Again. We love how lamps come in so many different shapes and sizes, and of course that they’re still so very practical and adaptable to modern-day life. It also helps that they’re still relatively easy to come by.

I think our most popular lamps in the shop are desk lamps, and it’s easy to see why. Most of them have great appeal because of their timelessness – shapes like these are still made today. Also, they make a great gift for men (who are always hard to buy for…)!



Of course, they don’t always come to us in a sellable state… Mr Maggie always rewires them, and sometimes he needs to do some other repairs as well. Yesterday he took these Before and After pictures of a wonderful, ceramic fat lava lamp that had been hanging in an Amsterdam kitchen for a good part of 40 years:

But after some good cleaning the ceramics always look brilliant…!



I also learned a new English word: sconce. Not something I’ll use every day, but still worth knowing 🙂



And then there are these rare gems: crazy shades. It doesn’t get more 70s than this! We even liked this top one so much that we kept it ourselves; it now graces my writing desk.
