Lighting Thursday!

August 13, 2009

It’s Lighting Thursday and I have some good fixtures today- A natural pendant, an antique inspired wall sconce, and a playful, colorful table lamp.


Woven Pendant, West Elm

Woven Pendant, West Elm


First up, the Woven Pendant from West Elm. This fixture is made from palm leaves that have been woven together in this unique pattern over a powder coated metal frame. The pattern adds textural interest while still maintaing a modern look. It uses a 60W bulb, and is $199.00. West Elm shows the fixture above a dining table, which I love, but I also think this fixture would be perfect in a reading nook above a chair.

I am a lover of antiques, and this wall sconce from Remains Lighting  just caught my eye. This particular piece is a remake of an antique. It is called Rex and is available in a number of finishes from brass to bronze to nickel to pewter to silver to gold, with either a mirror, black glass or white glass inset panel. Shown is the Satin Nickel with black glass inset panel. When I see this fixture, I see it in a sophisticated library or dining room designed with the 1930’s in mind.

Lastly, we have PXL, a table lamp by Fredrik Mattson, and produced by Zero. PXL is multicolored lacquered aluminum and steel and uses a 60W/E27 lamp. Would look great in a kids room, a modern daycare, a colorful home office. I could see this lamp in endless spaces.
