Is anyone else as giddy about lighting as I am?

Ah, lighting. I am drawn like a moth to a flame when it comes to anything related to lighting and always have been.

One of the things I fell in love with immediately at our Eichler home was the set of lamps by E.J.S. Lighting Corporation in the living room, which I've discussed at length here.

I'm also fairly certain at one point the original owners had George Nelson Bubble lamps at our home. George Nelson is one of my favorite furniture and lighting designers. His light fixtures were produced by Howard Miller. I've been lucky enough to find two catalogs of his lamps and wanted to share these with you and the MCM community on Flickr.

Check out these awesome mid-century Lightolier lights from another catalog I recently found. I wish I knew the name of the designer of these lamps. If anyone knows, please leave a comment below.

Do any of you collect lamps/light fixtures? Certainly I can't be the only one who's been bitten by the lighting bug!
