Mission Style Lighting
House lighting comes in different styles. If you looking for distinct, elegant, but simple lighting style, then you can choose mission style lighting. Mission style lighting is a straightforward style of lighting characterized by its bold yet simple geometric shapes, its use of organic, earthy materials like Oak and Cherry wood; copper, brass, pewter, and iron; stained glass, slag glass, and mica. The Mission style of home design and home decorating was originally associated with the Spanish missionaries living and working in the North American Southwest. The hallmark features of Mission design are straight lines and simplicity of design. The Mission style is basically simple, not ornate or super detailed. The Mission style is a uniquely American offshoot of an English and American design philosophy known as the Arts and Crafts Movement.

These light fixtures are of strictly geometric design, featuring stained or slag glass, or translucent mica, set into a frame made of wood or metal.
