Retractable Cords for Lighting Fixtures

Michael Daniel

I am working on a lighting project for a client and have been searching all over for retractable cords that I could use in the lighting fixture that I am designing. It seems that the cords have gone the way of the dodo bird. I'm basically looking for a cord that would be used in the same manner as the old retractable lights from the 50's and 60's. Does anyone out there know where I can find these cords?

Here's an example that I found on the great Retro Renovation blog:

Gramercy Tavern asked me to design some new light fixtures for their main dining room. Here are some photos of the work in progress and the finished product.

Pace University Dorm

Last year I did some decorative work for a new Pace University dorm that was being built. The lovely and talented ladies at Amy Statuto Interiors (the interior designer for the job) sent me some images of the work after it had been installed. Nice!
