Editor’s Note: Lighting is a unique, personal form of decoration. Another lighting designer wrote about Shabby Chic Chandeliers. Every designer seems to have a different slant on every style and fixture. So read as much as you can. You'll find your own unique style.

Shabby Chic Design

Shabby Chic is a form of interior design that proudly shows its signs of age, wear and tear like a badge of honor! Nothing new, shiny or flawless is used in this style of decorating.

Shabby Chic Kitchen

Heavily painted thought the years with wood showing through is the desired look for these pieces. With lighting you can use pendants in weathered whites, pinks, light green and blues. Use lighting with roses! There will be no confusion which vibe you’re going for with roses!

The style emerged in Great Britain in the early 1900’s with large country houses where the fabrics are faded and, paintwork is old and worn which became unassuming good taste.

Today's Shabby Chic

Shabby Chic became popular in the 1980’s when recycling old furniture and fabrics became very chic! This was a very economical way for modern Bohemians to fashionably decorate.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
