Shoutout: How to Make a Gold Perforated Pendant Lamp
Every so often we see a project that’s too impressive not to share — whether it’s for simplicity, beauty, or cleverness, these projects deserve something even more special than a spot in a roundup. They deserve a Shoutout!
Today’s find comes from one of our favorite all around blogs, Design Milk. This Simple Cone Pendant Lamp, created by Meg Kemner, is sure to inspire an a-ha moment as soon as you see how it’s done. Each pendant lamp is made with a few key nuts and bolts (actually, screws), flat, flame-retardant material, and a hanging light bulb. Check out the tutorial for the full how-to.
What we love about this project is how easy it is to customize for your own design aesthetic. You can try using all sorts of colorful hand-pressed papers, a stiff piece of wool or felt, or laser cut your own piece of metal to mimic the gold perforated lamp you see in this post. We can’t wait to give this a try here at Brit HQ! (Photos via Design Milk)
