Lighting that Makes a Statement
Allison Sconce – Silver
This starburst-shaped sconce in a brilliant silver finish looks more like wall sculpture than a lamp, thanks to its chrome-topped bulbs. And because it plugs in, there's no hassle with hardwiring your space. Pangea Home is proof that modern furnishings can be warm and welcoming as well as cool and chic. Simple, streamlined shapes are enriched with polished wood veneers and high-gloss lacquers; tempered glass and sleek steel add polish to spare, clean lines. These are pieces that beautifully enhance contemporary settings as well as bring a subtle energy to transitional decor.
Link Pendant – Iron – Jamie Young
Putting a modern spin on an industrial aesthetic, this pendant is crafted entirely of iron with a chain-link shade. Hardwired.
Dahlia Pendant – Clear/Nickel – Viz Glass
This pendant, comprised of star-shaped glass flutes radiating from a central metal fixture, is at once ethereal and industrial. We love how the clear blown glass is as visually exciting as a piece of contemporary art. Due to the handmade nature of this piece, variations in color, tone, and pattern may occur. Bubbling is common in handblown glass and merely adds to the artisanal allure of the piece.
Layla Chandelier – Antique Gold – Crystorama
Strands of gleaming gold discs strung along a cylindrical frame give this chandelier a mid-century feel.
Constellation Small Flush Mount – Nickel – Visual Comfort & Co.
Illuminate any space in eye-catching style with this stunning constellation-inspired flush mount. Crafted of brass with a nickel finish. Hardwired.
Cleo 1-Light Chandelier – Almond – Selamat
A casual take on a formal chandelier, this one uses natural strands of jute that are twisted and wrapped around a collapsible three-tier metal frame. The fixture comes with a UL-approved socket and soft cord single bulb pendant kit. Bulbs not included.
Rustic Spiral Table Lamp – White – John-Richard
Pairing a textural, spiraled body with a gleaming steel base, this table lamp makes an eye-catching addition to any decor. A neutral cotton shade completes the piece. John-Richard believes the home should be filled with accents that are as functional as they are beautiful. Its superb lighting, accents, mirrors, and more are proof. Taking inspiration from myriad sources–Chinese pottery, Moroccan mosaics, bird nests, beehives–its designers are passionate about creating functional works of art.
Crimp 3-Light Chandelier – Bronze – Global Views
The unique three-dimensional character of this chandelier will add depth to any room. A quick glimpse at the selection of Global Views' offering tells it best: trays and tables influenced by myriad cultures, vases, and vessels with sculptural forms, lamps and mirrors evoking bygone eras. These are uncommon, beautifully designed pieces with the power to enhance any interior they're in, creations of uniquely skilled artisans from all corners of the globe.
17″ Camilla Pendant – Gold – Cyan
