As a cottager, camp owner type guy, I am into interior decorating….well not exactly, and certainly not like that television show featuring the guys on the Home and Garden Network. No, my interior decorating is influenced more from shows on the Outdoor Life Network.
I like interior design that features wildlife and the great outdoors, and I have a particular affliction for things that have something to do with moose and to some extent whitetail deer. Perhaps because I am a hunter of sorts, perhaps because these two animals fascinate me, particularly moose.
So you can imagine my delight to find this wonderful handcrafted light from the Meyda Tiffany company. This extremely outdoorsy light fixture features a moose and deer walking through the trees in a circular pendant that was handcrafted in the U.S.A. by Meyda Artisans. The light is suspended from hand crafted branch light chain links that hang from a tree adorned hub. It is very reminiscent of where you might expect to see a moose or deer, around the edges of a softwood swamp, sliding quietly through the trees.
I really like it, and think it would be a ‘big step up’ from the $39 ceiling fan lights that we currently have in the cottage….this would give the place some class, like the big Adirondack area lodges of the 1920’s and 30’s.
Places where millionaires and celebrities spent their summers. I could imagine some hollywood starlets spending the summer at my camp with me….unfortunately, Wendy has difficulty imagining the same thing…..however, if you want to add some class to your resort cottage, really bring the place up a notch, make yourself the envy of the other campers, you need to consider something like this light fixture.
Meyda Tiffany began about 30 years ago by Meyer Cohen. His wife, Ida, (Meyda is a combination of their two names) asked him to install a stained glass window in their kitchen so she wouldn’t have to look at their neighbor’s driveway, apparently the neighbor was an old car buff. That was the beginning of Meyer’s new hobby which quickly became Meyer’s new business, Meyda Tiffany.
Meyer soon became America’s leading and oldest manufacturer of Tiffany lamps and decorative lighting and he continues to be to this day.
In addition to his stain glass lighting, Meyda bought a metal art studio, Mecco Art, and now uses it’s equipment and techniques to create what they call the Old Forge line of custom crafted steel sculptured lighting. Old Forge includes original, natural and wildlife themes, to produce lamps, chandeliers, figurines, candleholders, towel racks, bookends, switch plates, coat racks, napkin holders, log holders, fireplace screens, and more.
So as you can see, this is not just any old light fixture…this is a piece of art, in addition to being a light….and it is going to look fabulous in your camp…the guys are really going to be impressed sitting underneath it having a boiled dinner or playing poker the first weekend of deer season.
