Lighting is something that is often overlooked when you are planning your home-decor scheme. One of my friends lived in her house for a whole year before getting any light shades in the living room! Here I have put together a collection of handmade lighting. From industrial copper piping to simple beach themed shades, there is a little something for every home here.
These pendant lights from Leosteen look like concrete, but are actually made from a unique material, usually used for industrial floors, which is as strong as concrete, but a third of the weight. Each item is handcrafted in a workshop in Germany, and made to order so you can choose the size, shape and even the colour!
Aiden Spencer's unusual yet stylish lights combine his craftsman skills with his previous career as an electrical engineer. Aiden's determination to transform ordinary objects to give them a new lease of life shines through (quite literally) in his tin can lights, taking industrial sized food cans and using them as lamp shades. Genius!
British designer Joanna Corney's work is inspired by her love of architecture. The patterns featured on the first and third lampshades shown above are created from Joanna's fine line drawings of art deco buildings. She takes shapes from within her drawing to create the geometric patterns used in her work.
Bringing industrial aspects into interior design is a huge trend in homeware at the moment (if you love pinterest as much as we do (follow us here) you'll already know that!) Design company Unique's has this trend nailed with their collection of lighting, all made to order in Cornwall, England.
Random Lights are a Brighton based company, whose gorgeous lighting is inspired by Scandinavian designers, from both past mid-century classics and modern day designs. Their designs are guided by shapes in nature and would fit into almost any decor scheme, whether it be modern or retro!
