Keyless light fixtures are economical, industrial, and with the right light bulb completely appropriate for a contemporary farmhouse. We knew we wanted edgy fixtures when we planned our house. We proved that when choosing our Pottery Barn dining room chandelier. However, splurges on PB fixtures that we really loved left us with little lighting budget for the upstairs bedroom, loft and mudroom. Then we discovered these keyless lights in a book, The Farmhouse. They had these cool chrome dipped light bulbs.
They look amazing when turned on. Directing the light back against the wall or ceiling that they are mounted on, the chrome gives an overall glow to the room. Here is what they look like in the loft.
And the best part... $1.30 + $1.59 for the bulb. Yeah, I know, we paid too much! That was because we upgraded to the ceramic ones at Lowe's. The electrician thought we were nuts. We think they are a perfect fit for our home!
*FYI: Code doesn't allow exposed bulb fixtures to be put in closets because of fire danger.*
