I love those old industrial ribbed glass light fixtures. I found them at urban archeology, but they are $$$$. Do you know where I can get new/old ones for much less?
Many thanks, Kat
Uplift Lighting in the West Village(506 Hudson Street; 929-3632)that's where I got my small version factory lighting, but they had the big'uns too.But is it still there??
have you tried ebay?
How about Restoration Hardware?
I got a knockoff at Lighting by Gregory on the Bowery. It was around $500 with the lens on the bottom and I get many compliments on it.It's right by their register and looks similar to the one in the photo.

absolutely try schoolhouse electric. i think that's the website name, as well - fantastic.
Might I ask this: If Kat is saying this fixture (which is quite nice) is $$$$ and Justin's 11/30 post mentions he found one for LESS - at $500 - then what in the *@ does $$$$ really mean? Is it bigger than a car? Is it made of platinum? I am - and trust me on this one - far from cheap, kind of frugal but not cheap - and unless its going to do my laundry or change my genetic body type I think this is a bunch of cash to put down on a light fixture which after a short period of time will be something one wants to change. With a bit of creativity perhaps you could actually make one. Oh yeah, and I make pretty good money....so if anyone finds it for less than five big ones, let me know. Maxwell was right about IKEA - ok, so its not exact - who is going to stand on a chair and notice...
.......I said it all with a smile...
thanks everyone! the info is great.
great idea, i'll start making one right away
oyster: ok, it was a bit much I guess, but I'm an artist/craftswoman and it just follows that I think that way. I guess it is easier to buy one...Your comment was funny. (hardware stores...oops, there I go again, sorry)
I just listed one of these ribbed glass industrial light fixtures on Ebay. I have 2 more of them I may list later.The fixture is Item number: 4452642550
