There’s something both retro and modern about Mirror Ball Gold which is no surprise considering this lighting was originally inspired by disco balls and space helmets. To apply shine to this piece a thin layer of metal is vaporized onto the inside surface of the globe.
Have you noticed that many of today’s top lamps and pendant lights feature a minimalist industrial presentation of one bulb (and little else)? For example this Lens Floor Lamp from West Elm is inspired by factory lighting. A glass shade and a steel base give this piece understated style power.
The pleated lampshade is another trademark feature of the series and it gives the edgy lamp a touch of visual softness. The handfolded lampshade that seems like it is almost neatly tucked inside also gives the lamp its name CACHÉ which in French means’ hidden’.
Industrial-style pendants vary from the small minimal designs with a simple metal holder to gigantic dome pendants that seem to dwarf everything around them. Picking the right pendant for your kitchen goes beyond just aesthetics and it is best to combine them with proper recessed lights to get a balance between task and ambient illumination.
