Specializing in bombdiggity custom and vintage-style reproduction lighting, the company was established in 2011 and has already been featured in The New York Times and Southern Living Magazine, and on WestElm.com, Pennyweightonline.com, Fab.com, and ApartmentTherapy.com. Yeeeeah, major hoopla. And for good reason. Craftsman Adam Gatchel has even been commissioned to customize the lighting for restaurants, bars, and retail hot spots around the world. That's how this chippy green wall sconce came about, but it's now sold to the public, advertised as being ideal over a bedside table or a favorite piece of art.
At first glance, you're going to think Gatchel's fixtures are all found treasures from back in the day; instead they're made of solid brass sockets and hardware that's been hand finished to an aged patina. Southern Electric Lights sells lots of industrial-looking wall sconces, but is most famous for its "Original Bell Jar Table Lamp" (pictured above).
Each light can be customized with twisted rayon wire that comes in over a dozen different colors. Most are priced between $115 and $250. Southern Electric also sells those perfectly retro Edison-style light bulbs (for $10 a pop), which I'm crazy about.
You can find the base product line on Etsy.com and ShopHorne.com, but Gatchel is big on customization, too, so if you're looking for something special, just give him a ring. Also hit them up on Facebook here. You're welcome.

by TJ AndersonI’ve shared studies before that showed “top” schoo
"I have known TJ since 2007, have purchased two homes with him and sold 3 others. He is, without question, the most knowledgable and responsive agent in Nashville (and beyond). My only regret is that I have recently moved out of state and am not able to use him on my next purchase out here. I would do so in a heartbeat if given the chance. I cannot recommend TJ more highly, either personally or professionally."
