It’s that damn light fixture and I still want one. The Serge Mouille 3 Arm Ceiling Lamp which is probably the most recognizable of their offerings is what I have a yearning for.
Serge Mouille began designing light fixtures in 1953 and is known for his black painted metal, discrete and sculptural designs that people loved then and still do today. Production of Mouille’s original fixtures stopped in 1961 but reproductions of the original designs are available.
I’m guessing your first reaction is, oh that’s so modern and yeah it is. But maybe I’ll surprise you a little if you see it in some more traditional interiors for the ultimate mix up. It’s iconic, artful and can transform a space in a flash.
Serge, persian and french chairs,
light your art collection with more art,
minimalist and classic,
in a nursery? well hell yes,
Ellen and Portia dig it,
Maybe you should just spring for a floor lamp,
And also in white if it’s not contrast you’re after,
And the examples could go on for days…
OK– so at a minimum I’ve peaked your interest about Mouille’s designs or I’ve got you convinced that it’s a perfect fit for your house. So, where can you buy these mobile-esque fixtures?
The real deal Serge Mouille 3 Arm Lamp is $6,350,
If you need a wall light or sconce at a breakfast area or by a reading spot, the Two Arm Rotating Wall Light will suit that need quite nicely. The wall lights are designed with as many as five arms,
But if you want the look and think they are unattainable, I can provide some comfort and assurance that you can in fact afford one. Enter the look for less,
Overstock has a Holstebro 3 Light Ceiling Lamp that is likely to be more in your wheel house.
Retrofurnish has a 3 Arm Ceiling Lamp.
And there are a multitude of options with different numbers of arms and configurations. I’m staring at my lackluster dining room right now and thinking what if?
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
