Charles Edward Anderson Berry was born on October 18, 1926, and unfortunately died last year, on March 18, 2017. Chuck was an American singer, songwriter, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. With songs such as “Maybellene”, “Roll Over Beethoven”, “Rock and Roll Music” and “Johnny B. Goode”, Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive.
Writing lyrics that focused on teen life and consumerism, and developing a music style that included guitar solos and showmanship, Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock music.
Berry was among the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on its opening in 1986, he was cited for having:
Laid the groundwork for not only a rock and roll sound but a rock and roll stance.
Berry was a man of many professional accomplishments! He is included in several of Rolling Stone’s magazine “greatest of all time” lists, he was ranked fifth on it’s 2004 and 2011 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame‘s 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll includes three of Berry’s hits, something remarkable for every artist. Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode” is the only rock-and-roll song included on the Voyager Golden Record.
He shared so much of him and his talent with the world, that DelightFULL made a wall lamp all inspired by the amazing artist that he was. Do you want to see it? here it is!
Inspired by the rock and roll world and the legendary Chuck Berry, DelightFULL has created Chuck wall light. This minimalist wall sconce is all about emotion and rhythm, conveying a vibrant feeling to any room. Its small body and mount are handmade in brass with a standard gold-plated finish, whilst the actual lampshade is built in aluminum and features a glossy black lacquer.
One of the best things about this small wall light is that you can combine multiple pieces to create a more dynamic look in your home decor. This minimalist interior wall light is the right fit for a contemporary living room decor, but it also sits well as a bedside wall lamp.

A thank you will never be enough for one of our biggest inspirations of all time, the American singer, and songwriter Aretha Franklin.

Feel Inspired: MEET THE INSPIRATION BEHIND BRUBECK SUSPENSION LAMP
Since you were born, on March 25, 1942, you have become a spot of light and hope for this world. Being an American singer, songwriter, and pianist gave you the power to express what no other woman could back in the days.
At the age of 18, you embarked on a secular career, recording for Columbia Records but achieving only modest success. But you needed more, didn’t you? After signing to Atlantic Records in 1967, you finally achieved commercial acclaim and success with songs such as “Respect”, “Chain of Fools”, “Think”, and so many others! But let’s talk about respect!
You gave life to a song made by Otis Redding in 1665 and you made it your own. You turned the song into a declaration from a strong, confident woman, who knows that she has everything her man wants. She never does him wrong, and demands his “respect”. And that’s what you provide for us: not a ‘little’ but a lot of respect.
Thank you for being a remarkable inspiration from the mid-century modern era and from being someone we can look up to. The vintage vibe of the 60’s wouldn’t be the same without you. And we, certainly, wouldn’t be the same without your influence.
Now rest in peace, and take care of all of us from up there. May we honor your work done here and may we present you to the newborns as the major inspiration you are for us.
See you soon,
