Inspired by the craft of building and architecture

Cord lights. Very popular right now. Cool and retro. Done really well in this Italian bistro in Milan. I talk a lot about working with the existing elements and here they strike again. Original brick barrel vaulted ceilings meet kickass cord lights. A genius fix. Instead of running some traditional metal pipe (conduit) to get the power to the cord lights they opted to order/design the fixtures with additional cord. The cord becomes another design element and runs exposed along the ceiling following the brick and mortar patterns completing the connection.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
