Compare and Contrast


Alison Berger's floor lamp caught my eye in the Michael Smith designed home in the October issue of House Beautiful.


The industrial metal and sparkle of the glass are a nice contrast to the texture in the rest of the room.

Berger's site is under construction, but you can view her pieces through Holly Hunt here.

A friend of mine used these lights in her newly renovated kitchen, and they really are lovely - clearly, great designs.

I love these and I do need new kitchen lights. Time to replace the horrid florescent with pendants!

You're right the juxtaposition is great. That's a great resource. I'm sure in no time restoration will be knocking these off too.

Loved this home in House Beautiful this month. The pendant lights were my favorite, so I'm glad you posted some further information on them!

I've noticed a lot of these industrial looking lights popping up. Some even harken back to the first lightbulb designs it seems to me. They're very cool, but I wonder if those bare, clear bulbs wouldn't get annoying? They'd have to be very low wattage for me to take, and that seems to fly in the face of task lighting (which I sort of need in the kitchen at my advanced age. The joke is that you could operate at my prep area.)

Just thinking out loud.
