Oooo! This new Floral Pendant by David Trubridge has several choices of interior paint colors, all of which add a subtle color wash that contrasts nicely to the outside natural bamboo finish.

Athena Pendant Light

Whoa, not a bad price for a crazy-angular-modern pendant light. It’s a powder-coated metal shade, so no worries about robustness. Also, there’s a slightly rounder version (Olympus, shown below) if that would suit you better.

Available in Black or White powder-coated finish.
Hardwire installation.

Joug Design Frangipani Light Shade

Frangipani, indeed. Do you know what a Frangipani is? It’s a flower that most of us would recognize as the Hawaiin Lei flower. The lovely textured pattern of this light shade is created from hundreds of overlapping elements of polypropylene plastic (which, as some of you might know, is completely recyclable).

Unfold Pendant by Form Us With Love

Spica Light, Threaded

As promised, the Spica Light in all its glory… by none other than Iacoli & McAllister. This pic shows the Spica threaded (threaded!), and obviously it’s a bit more expensive with those hand-wrapped threads, but it sure packs a punch with a little bit of color detail. Of course, without threads the Spica is still spectacular. Also, the smaller black version with threads is over at Gretel ($795), if you’d like to see how it looks.

Luna Pendant

I’ll spare you the many exclamation points and simply point out that this pendant bears resemblance to Earth’s only natural satellite. A floor and table light version also available (see below).

Frame Pendant Lamps by Iacoli and McAllister

These bright frame lights from Seattle based Iacoli & McAllister provide a nice pop of color, don’t they? I know I just posted their Table Light the other day, but I’m liking their collection too much to let it fall by the wayside (or get lost in my bookmarks, which is often the case). Their Spica Light ($800) is pretty fantastic too, but I’ll save that for another day.

Lift Lamp

This is a custom ordered item from Science&Sons, who are well known for their Phonfone, just to get that out of the way first. Now, besides it being actually an interesting shape for a light, the idea behind the LIFT LAMP was to create an object that was fun to clean, so, to dust this lamp you’d fly it like a kite. Delightful idea, isn’t it? The light collapses down fairly quickly for easy transport.

Materials: Sailcloth, Graphite tubing, metal fittings
Size: 48″ DIA. x 22″ H.

La Couronne Pendant Lamp

This La Couronne Pendant from Artecnica immediately reminds me of Bertjan Pot’s Revolving Chandelier (2009), which I fell in love with not only for its black/white and transparent silver shade, but also for its delightful movement (see clip at bertjanpot.nl). While the La Couronne certainly doesn’t rotate automatically, it does possess a similar feel, and at $125, it has a very friendly price tag.

Block 2 Lamp

Designer Henry Pilcher turns the traditional industrial pendant shade literally on its head by encasing it in a wooden geometric frame. This unique framework allows the Block 2 lamp to be hung, free standing at many angles, and because of its now modularity, multiples can be stacked in infinite combinations (if you can actually afford more than one that is). Being that thsese fixtures can be both pendant and floor lamps, I see huge potential in these lamps for their flexibility.
