Eames is the designer, Vitra has a license to produce his designs. Same as Herman Miller (USA).

Eames is the designer - Charles and Ray. Vitra make them in Europe and Herman Miller in the US.

HM is the more 'authentic' manufacturer.

What type of shower?
Straight swap or new pipework required?

Looking at kitchens. Who would people recommend in terms of quality, without a Harvey Jones price tag?

We have this light in our dining room, which as you can see is one glass ball/shade short. Thanks to my brilliant girlfriend and her head.



We bought the light off the previous owners when we bought the house, we know where they got it from and this is the light and the shop

http://www.peppermillantiques.com/industrial-style-pendant-lights-glass-ball-shades/

We have rung and emailed the shop but they are less than helpful as to who supplied the light or where we could source a replacement shade.

Complete long shot but does anyone have any clues as to where I could get one? I've searched everywhere for anyone else who sells the light but to no avail and have no other real clues.

I did the bedroom ceilings with the small one, not that comfy but easier with an extendable handle.

Yeah that's the one we have Dee but the 3 light version, but it's been discontinued. Think we will end up having to replace them all but unsure if the fixing size will be the same.

it's just a standard light fixing so just need to measure up the approximate size you want the shades to be.

Smiling did a search and just seen it's the same site you posted!
