These are definite classics. The Fortuny Lights, designed by Mariano Fortuny in the early 1900's, are photographer-style fixtures and are absolutely stunning. The design is available in a floor lamp, table lamp, and pendant fixture. We were really wowed by the new printed "Ornaments" version shown above.
Each fixture has a cotton or metal shade with a diffuser on a steel armature. The prices on these are a bit steep, anywhere from about $800 to $4000, but are easy on the eyes nonetheless.
