Another Florida Gem....

West Palm Beach / Dixie Highway 
is a place I could get lost in for days.
There are so many gems to be found!  

Like Reward Lighting...
Some of you Delray residents might remember a little place behind Chico's called English & Frank.  Full of quirky fun things and lots of light fixtures, English and Frank became my go-to source to refurbish or rewire a light fixture.  What a great find!  
Then they closed one day....not so great. 

So imagine my delight at finding Frank (of the old Delray English & Frank!) at Reward Lighting in West Palm Beach! 

Here is Frank next to his favorite Murano glass chandelier...

It seems Frank found his way to Rewards after English and Frank closed shop because of skyrocketing rent (not an unusual scenario) but now he is happily reusing lighting from the trash bin and remaking parts and pieces into wonderful things.  Frank is a extremely creative and can do just about anything you can imagine when it comes to chandeliers or know like turning pots into lamps or basically any of the weird ideas our decorator brains think up.  

Here are a few photos of the Rewards shop and some of the goodies contained within...

Spanish, Italian and Moorish styles abound!

These turquoise and quartz beauties were beyond fabulous in 
person and came from the Breakers Hotel

A salvage yard of great finds....  
Who knows...there could be an Addison Mizner original in that pile just waiting to be found!

Great selection of bell jar lanterns....

Funky Ken-Head lamp finial?!  
Frank loves to make up quirky, kitschy things because.....he can!

We decided to have Frank create a crystal chandelier with vintage Breakers Hotel crystal and added a few sapphire blue crystals to change it up a bit.  
We can't wait to see what he comes up with!  
(I will post pics once the chandelier is installed)  
Plus he made it in two weeks time - no waiting for 10-12 weeks!!

So drop by and visit Frank anytime at Rewards.  
Who knows what you will find or be inspired to create!
