Reader Request: Pendant Lamps

Last week I received an e-mail from Yoli in Key Largo, Florida:

My decor is African. I am looking for a hanging lamp that both has character and has clean lines. Do you know where I may find one?

Well, Yoli, you are definitely in luck. With new fall collections being released, and the desire for well-priced items that can fit into modern interiors, there are some wonderful lighting choices out there just perfect for your African-inspired home. Here are just a few of my favorites.

The West Elm globe pendant lamp is clean and modern. Metal and glass come together to form a pendant that will add understated elegance to your home. This lamp will also fit beautifully into an African-inspired interior, like the one featured.

West Elm’s abaca pendant lamp (photo above) is also a great choice. Both pendants will look striking in small groupings.

CB2’s sol pendant lamp has lots of character in bright yellow. Large enough to add impact over a dining room table or in an entryway, this retro pendant will look just right in a warm and simple interior where it can be the star of the show.

A real showstopper is this hanging rattan lamp from Z Gallerie. Handwoven, the lines are stunning. It would look gorgeous in a room like the one on the left, where it can truly be the center of attention. Woven and rustic, this lamp is perfect for a room with African style.

Finally, the leran pendant from IKEA is a wonderful and affordable choice for a ceiling lamp. Although it’s woven, it still has clean lines. For a room with natural elements, like this living room in South Africa, this pendant will be a nice compliment.

Yoli, I hope these choices will help on your search for the perfect pendant lamp. Please let us know if you find something, and send pictures. I would love to see the lighting choice you decide on.
