I often joke that lighting is to a room as a hand bag is to a woman’s ensemble: the perfect finishing touch. So it doesn’t surprise me that i can remember 3 years back when the d-form lighting catalog first arrived in my mailbox; stunning only begins to describe these lamps and pendants. Founded in 2001 and based in Brooklyn, James Dieter and company hand assemble each lamp of die cut wood veneers in one of six breathtaking patterns.
My favorite is this Nelson-inspired Basket Saucer Suspension pendant. Available in aspen or birch veneer, each is custom made-to-order. A bit pricey, yes, but could you imagine anything more beautiful above your dining table?
