Take a look at the pricing on these wine bottle pendants, not bad for a pop of color, eh? I bet they’d look lovely in a clustered together above a small dining table. (Also, the product description doesn’t state whether the bottles come from a recycling facility, so I’m guessing they don’t.)
Custom crafted in the Meyda Hot Shop in the USA.
Available in various colors, the glass can have either a frosted or transparent finish.
Purchase Information:Price: $151.19

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.

Usually cords are unappealing and annoying necessities, but in the case of the Lloop Basic by

Aluminium lampshade, two wooden pieces, transparent plastic pull relief and 6 meters of textile electricity cable

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.
Purchase Information:Price: $315.00

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).
Purchase Information:Price: $120.00 - 340.00

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.
Purchase Information:Price: $445.00-1,800.00

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.

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.

New York-based Rich Brilliant Willing has teamed up with Artecnica to bring us these recyclable cast glass pendants. Hang one as a pendant lamp or group several together to make more of an impact… or if you should so choose, lay one on its side as a table 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.
