Introduction to Laura Ashley Lighting
Laura Ashley did not start out with her own line of lighting fixtures. She started in her humble home where she lived in England with her husband. Around the middle nineteen fifties, Laura was wiped out by the flooding of the Derwent River overflowing. By then she was well on her way to being a household name with her beautiful prints and fabrics. Laura Ashley lighting was started many years after her passing in nineteen eighty five.
Laura Ashley lighting can be found in most of the department stores and discount houses. The line carries many different lamps and chandeliers. One is called the Cherry Blossom 5 arm chandelier. It is made of steel pretty wrought iron flowers entwined throughout. The colors are quite nice of antique pale sage and pink. There are a number of different styles in this line alone.
