The value of light as it is used in a space cannot be underestimated. Lighting is used to arrange a space – to create atmosphere, a perfect balance of light and shadow, or to make the best use of the dispersion of light for projects, office work, galleries, or dining.
Shoppers at OGT online or visitors to any of our Olde Good Things locations find themselves in a wonderland of light fixtures for every purpose. From atmospheric lighting for the home, commercial space, or restaurant, to industrial light fixtures invented to maximize light concentration and minimize glare, OGT offers such a wide selection of antique and modern lighting… it is an adventure in discovering the ways light can be used.
Consider the unique types of housing that encapsulate light. The variety of shades, globes, lanterns – all homes for light are a component in the overall experience of beauty and functionality when hunting down your unique lighting design.
OGT’s antique and modern light fixture selection is reclaimed from classic homes and historic buildings. Our collection includes chandeliers, sconces, industrial light fixtures, flush and semi flush mounts, nautical lighting, lamps, pendant lighting, and more.
OGT has collected, restored, and sold antique original fixtures since 1995. Reclaimed light fixtures from such historic venues as The Waldorf Astoria and Plaza Hotel wait to inspire. Customers can also find commercial lighting from historic NYC banks, skyscrapers, and entertainment venues, like Brooklyn’s Prospect Hall, along with a surprising variety of 1940s Art Deco theater chandeliers, many from the famous Rialto Theater. Other pieces include single socket flush mount fixtures from 1910 to Baccarat crystal chandeliers reclaimed from governors’ mansions. One of our latest historic salvages includes authentic vintage Murano glass chandeliers from a private collection.
Many of these historic structures are in the process of demolition or complete renovation. Some of the most classic pieces are diamonds in the rough.
Restoring light fixtures can be a project many would prefer to leave to the experts. Rewiring and cleaning of antique light fixtures can be a delicate art. Olde Good Things restoration experts lovingly restore at our special lighting restoration shop. This allows our light-smiths to ensure the functionality, safety, and beauty of your chosen lighting. For those who purchase a light from us, services include rewiring, socketing, compiling, chaining, and custom design.
With several acres of lighting inventory to be restored, OGT offers lighting restoration service only for lights purchased at OGT.
