The history of lighting fixtures provides a wealth of sources for design inspiration, as exemplified by the Somerset family, in wrought iron with Golden Graphite finish. The concept of removable hanging candle lanterns, as well as oil-burning beakers, can be traced to the late 15th century in Tudor England. Bedrooms in particular were often furnished with a simple wood or iron hanging crossbar, called a candlebeam, from which the lanterns would be suspended as they were transferred from one space to another. Added to this concept is a flourish of Art Nouveau linearity in the iron supports and Frost Clear ice glass shades resembling wrapped parchment. The result becomes a truly unique contemporary fixture.
