Description from Rejuvenation
The Carson Rod Pendant is a formidable yet shapely pendant that meets the need for industrial-strength, durable lighting in large spaces. Originally made from heavy iron and used to light factories and warehouses, our lightweight, durable aluminum version will add function, character, and style to kitchens, foyers, dining rooms, and bedrooms.
This type of warehouse light was developed in the late 1880s and 1890s, primarily for street lighting. When researching warehouse lights in our library of vintage catalogues, we were thrilled to discover these utilitarian fixtures originally had great details like decorative acorn finials, cast shade holders with cooling fins, and well-proportioned enamel shades. We knew if we were going to do them, we needed to do them right–keeping not only their functionality, but also their flair.
