I could only – after, admittedly, quite a brief search – come up with very expensive versions or ones for sale online on a pick-up in person basis, in far flung parts of the country. I shall resume the search afresh... meanwhile, I got a little distracted searching for other, interesting, ways to adorn the pendant light in one's life. Brilliantly, not one of them would even be a potential alternative for the parents. But that's procrastination for you...
a post about a light made from old jam jars. You can read about the company in the UK that reckons it can make jam jar lights for you – or make your own. The construction is simpler than it first looks as the glasses just hang around a central lightbulb. This one is no longer for sale, but there are similar ones at Boots n Gus, the Etsy shop that makes them with prices for this sort of thing starting around £80.
Dear Emma Designs and on sale at Folly and Glee for £42.
Lampshade porn for me, these 'Hex' and 'Bridget' walnut shades designed by Sarah Newman. The sharp brights against the shiny walnut grain backdrop makes for a stunner. Available from Heals for £150. Way beyond my current price range for lampshades, but too beautiful not to include.
Klickity this design is simple but clever, as the inside surface lets the lightbulb cast a particularly lovely glow.
KaiGami, this clever propylane lamp drape is beautifully simple in concept, and would create lovely shadows when illuminated. Buy it for £35 from Bouf.
