Brass Light gallery was chosen because our fixtures, according to the homeowner are, “strong but not overpowering, authentic, well designed…and fulfilled the need to incorporate pieces that transcended the Georgian period. ”

Located in the Village of Kinlough, Country of Letrim this charming new home overlooks Donegal Bay and is surrounded by two streams, foxglove and sheep.  The exterior is all reclaimed stone from old cottages and sheds.  This home is nearing completion and has been a labor of love for it’s owner, an Arizona native, who bought the property while on vacation 5 years ago.

Our Mission Four-Rod Pendants light the kitchen with 30 ft. ceilings and our Buffalo Grove Four-Light Fixture illuminates the dining room.  The light fixtures are custom wired for the UK.

Note the intriguing  interior stone wall which the owner calls a “Famine” wall, as it was based on  falling down famine cottages (built during Ireland’s Great Famine 1845-1849) found in the surrounding countryside.

More photos and full story to come when home is complete.
