I always want to love Velocity but it seems that whenever I visit the store they are often unwelcoming, especially for a boutique shop.
I live right around the street from them and have never had them be anything BUT welcoming. Maybe you caught them on a bad day? What happened?Jill
Maybe this is the wrong place to ask...but has anyone had any problems (recently) with the speed of d*sponge? The pictures seem to be loading significantly slower...and I don't think it's my computer!Chad
chadi'm with you- it's been taking me a while to load my own site. i think it's something to do with the new blogger system. i'm noticed that when i load other blogger sites it takes a while to bring up the photos- and sometimes they don't even come up. usually i just hit reload and it works. so sorry for this- until they get the bugs out of the system there will probably be little glitches like this.thanks for your patience though ;)d*s
I have purchased several things from Velocity and they have allways been super nice and very welcoming.
Perfect lighting!It is definitely something you don't think about except when it is great and it makes a room. I have high hopes for these lovely pieces.
Thanks Grace...the d* is worth it!Chad
As the owner of Velocity, I take comments from the first responder quite seriously (I also appreciate the other people that responded with their positive feedback too!) We pride ourselves on being extremely welcoming and friendly to all that come to our store, call us, or email us. So, if there is a specific incident that I can help you with, please feel free to email me so that we can discuss it further or help resolve it to your satisfaction. Thank you so much- John john at velocityartanddesign.com - Grace..hope this was ok to comment on that here..
Hi! While i thik that these porcelain lights are lovely - i feel that much of the appeal includes the bulbs shown in the picture (not sold with the piece). Lighting where the bulb comes down below the edge of the shade can be very harsh to look at and live with. Perhaps what would be the simplest solution for customers would be information on where to get this type of bulb?
jeniferi actually have some similar lights by niche modern with exposed bulbs and i use those sort of old-school filament bulbs. they're not harsh to look at at all- they're actually quite soft and lovely. here are some links:http://www.doityourself.com/invt/5667126http://www.lightbulbsdirect.com/page/001/CTGY/Incandescentthese are nice, too:http://www.lightbulbsdirect.com/page/001/CTGY/Antiqued*s
Jenifer- We haven't had a chance yet, but will be adding those bulbs to the site this week. I agree about that "old school" look being key. Grace listed some other great places to get them. Thanks! John from Velocity
I love these fixtures, and the bulbs too, but always worry that that style bulb won't be bright enough. Would one be bright enough to light, say, a kitchen?
