To conspiciously shade or not to conspicuously shade, that is the question. When it comes to pendants, they can be a focal point or a more utilitarian fixture, and if you're going for a subdued aesthetic you can't get much more classic than this Conran exclusive. It looks like a hard-working factory light and functions like a hard-working factory light, and comes in red or black to match your interiors.
A favorite find from ICFF was Studio Gorm's Milk Bottle lamps. The Eugene, Oregon-based studio creates the hand-blown pendants with either one shade, or a unique shade-within-a-shade design, some of which have a subtle white 'twisted cane' pattern. We particularly like the pieces with the small wooden accent at their base.
Brutalism takes a backseat while Aplomb proves that concrete has a smoother side. Suspended from the ceiling with the greatest of ease, the pendant’s graceful drop belies the material’s intrinsic strength.
Each iron Firefly fixture from CB2 comes with five glass shades which would look great lined up above the dining table or kitchen countertop, or illuminating the living room.
