My sister had a business trip to DC and I met her down there for a quick weekend trip. It was a ton of fun and we hit most of the highlights in just 2 days. I’ve got light fixtures and door hardware on the brain and I must say, DC has some of the coolest light fixtures ever! This is my collection of iPhone pictures of lamps and chandeliers and street lights from all over the city.
And, if you haven’t seen enough lights, there’s practically a whole exhibit at the American History Museum! I wanted to buy prints of all this cool stuff but they didn’t have anything nearly this cool in the gift shop. If you know where I can get a print of this image, please let me know in the comments!
They had whole display cases of early electric lamps and light fixtures as well as the beautiful images from the patents for the fixtures.
DC is a light-fixture lovers dream. I can’t wait to take Stefan with me next time I visit. I’m afraid my sister thought taking more pictures of the lights than the art was a little strange 🙂
