Just a few days after publishing this post, the lamp of my dreams arrived. It may not be an original Lou Blass but it's going to be perfect for our new kitchen. Now that summer has ended I can get back to working on the renovation. I have two inspirational plans in mind one here and here and a third in the works each one includes this light fixture. Stay posted for the third and possibly final iteration and a preview of how the kitchen looks now. In the mean time take a look at the lamp that has inspired it all.
