From Janet:

Based in Cornwall, England, SkinFlint is a lighting design firm that also offers reclaimed and salvaged lights from the 20th century, with an emphasis on industrial fixtures. “We specialize in lighting products of a simple and clean-lined nature, predominantly from 1900 to 1960,” they say. “So much design and production from the middle of the 20th century appears as fresh and modern today as it did when first conceived, making it ideal for both contemporary and period interiors.” SkinFlint ships worldwide, and they can also source lights and provide lighting design services for residential and commercial lighting projects. Perusing their website is great fun; take a look at the firm’s design portfolio at SkinFlint.
