Lighting on the Staircase

We found these great old globes at a local yard sale--$10 for the pair. Old globes don't fit into standard size fixtures, so we sought out the help of local lighting expert Carlos Castaneda to find some appropriate size fixtures. They were originally a chrome finish, so we had them refinished in an oil rubbed bronze. The longer one is on the upstairs landing, the shorter, more flush mount is on the lower staircase, and allows for a little more headroom when coming down the stairs. Not bad!
