A Visit to The Urban Electric Company

Recently, we traveled to Charleston, one of my favorite cities on many fronts - the architecture, the history, the restaurants, the weather, the beaches, and of course the friendly people.  What a treat to visit one my favorite lighting companies - The Urban Electric Company!  

Thanks Missy for the tour!

The Urban Electric Company is headquartered in a huge brick factory in Charleston that used to make sails for the Navy.

The showroom has many fixtures we've used on projects!  
By the way, I love lanterns!!

I recently installed some of these mirrored sconces in a dining room in Greenwich.

Wonderful large glass bulbs.

The factory tour!

Working with a company that will do custom sizes and finishes is a dream for any designer!

More lanterns in production.

I think the shape of this lantern is so original... I just love it!

We took a peek at some models in prep for photography.

 Touring the factory I saw first hand the pride and craftsmanship that goes into each fixture.
