Brass and Black Light Fixtures

Since we started building, I've been posting about big projects like framing, the floors and the stonework.  Now that most of the major elements are done, I find myself waiting and wondering what to post about next.  

We've been working on the last 10% of the project:  finishing details like cabinetry and furniture.  This is the most time consuming part of the project but the most important since it's ALL about the details.

Here's a roundup of some of the lighting I've collected for our new home.  Some new, some vintage.  All natural brass, black or glass.

I still have many key fixtures to buy:  living room pendant, front entrance, master bedroom... I'm a little over half way done the house for lighting!
