So unless I’m missing some giant source of lighting here in Singers (which I suppose is entirely possible – if so please fill me in somebody!), it is one area of interior design that is seriously under-represented in this city. There are lots of generic lighting shops that stock maybe two decent fittings, but the rest are gross bling-tastic fake crystal chandies or big-bummed lady table lamps (I’ll take a pic next time to show you – it’s not a nice lamp…).
As a result I’ve been hunting high and low on t’internet for a gorgeous + affordable brass pendant for aaaages but all the ones I find are $2,500 (see my Arteriors lighting post here for some swoonworthy goodies) and/or wired for US voltage, so no good here in Asia.
Anyhoo, so a while back during my internet ramblings I stumbled across a source of brass/glass Moravian Star pendant shells for cheapcheap and have since been figuring out how to turn the shells into an actual pendant light. The last ingredients arrive today (lightbulbs and brass chain) and I am totally psyched to get it wired up and shining bright.
Looong and not very interesting story, ha. Well here are a few inspo piccies that I’m loving right now to give you an idea of what I’m going on about. Whether it’s in a hallway, entryway, kitchen, bathroom or porch, these beauties know how to make a statement. Enjoy!
Also amazeballs in event design, no?
