Design Through the Decades - part 49

Lighting in Phoenix homes in the 1990s was defined by brass & glass.  Here is a typical 1990s light with brass and glass.

A glass dome light with a gold metal rim was very popular in 1990s homes.  A simple fluorescent light box on kitchen ceilings was a standard feature of new construction.

Ceiling fans with down lights were found in most 1990s homes.

1990s lighting did not lead itself to exciting photos.  It is what it is.  But lighting styles changed (for the better?) in the 2000s.

    I hate can lights. They shed no light. The others are ok. They are not as offensive as some from the earlier decades, except, maybe, the brass is too shiny.
