Cluster mania

The industrial-chic trend is still riding high these days and perhaps the item growing most in popularity is the ever-popular, cluster light.  From high end – this Valenti Luc: Marco Agnoli Sphere 19 Pendant Lamp runs for a cool $4K…

…to the more down-to-earth – this Silver Dragee Cluster Lamp from Clayton Gray Home will only set you back $275…

…to the mass produced – This Cluster Glass Pendant option from West Elm is a more bold option ringing in at only $199…

…to the whimsical – even kids can get in on the action with this playful Licorice Rope Rainbow Pendant from Land of Nod

…it seems that everyone wants in on this bold, dynamic, modern statement.  Even with all of the great options above, potentially the best part about this look is that it is quite easy to do at home as well.  Check out this fantastic version designer, John Giacomazzi, created.  It was originally featured on Remodelista including a fantastic tutorial.

The look is so successful because of the play between the hardness of the wires and open electrical sockets and the softness of the glowing, light-filled glass orbs.  For an even more dramatic application, Susan and William Brinson DIY’d a stunning, table length cluster fixture…

…which was the inspiration for Amanda and Cory of Love and Renovations to DIY this amazing fixture in their dining room.  I’m totally smitten by juxtaposition of the of the ‘hard’ industrial cluster light fixture and the ‘softly bold’ upholstered chairs. Bonus: they’ve included a fantastic tutorial for the light fixture over on their website.


What do you think – where would you incorporate a cluster light in your home?
