We all know You Tube but the London Tube was here first.
The underground transportation system in London is often referred to as the tubes, and rightfully so. An underground tunnel that’s shaped like a tube with subway cars running through it. But here we just call it the subway.
Inspired by wall sconces that once graced the tube stations of London back in the early 1900’s, this vintage industrial light can now hang on a wall in your home. Made of solid metal with mirrored cut glass lining the shade, this sconce will illuminate a space more than expected. Add an over sized hand blown glass globe and you have real vintage industrial style. Line these sconces on the wall over restaurant tables or use them in the home. Either way, they will look great.
So next time you shop for vintage industrial wall sconces, remember the London tubes.
Next stop, Piccadilly Circus. Cheers!
