George Nelson Bubble Light - A Design Classic at RED in FRED

If you have read my blog for a while, you may know that some of my nearest and dearest are the brains and brawn behind the fabulous Main Street store, red. The shop has continued to evolve over the last four years and I couldn't be more proud of my friends. It truly rivals any big city design emporium!

red is an amazing mix of vintage and modern, and has recently moved to an even bigger space, in a most notable location, I might add. The old Buick building is perfect for such an interesting mix of the best of contemporary design mixed with the charm of vintage treasure.

The big news today is the contest they are holding for a George Nelson bubble light. Read all about it here.

What I love about these fixtures is their versatility. Of course, any one of them would look fabulous in a contemporary setting, but would also add some punch over an old farm table or  even in a bedroom.

The George Nelson bubble lamps are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. They are just a classic - that's all there is to it!

Go take a look here - go now, and be sure to leave a comment to win a chance at a classic in the design world!


  1. I haven't made it to their new location yet, but I plan on righting that wrong very soon!

    I'm not sure when I'll be back in town for a day of leisure, things are a whirlwind on this end.

    I look forward to meeting you, though!

  2. I was in Fredericksburg a few months ago and was thrilled to pick up some items there. What a great store!
