Down From Above: 10 Gorgeous Hanging Lights

Overhead lights have come a long, long way since the days of iron chandeliers lit by candles and, more recently, the dreaded dome lighting of the mid-20th century — perhaps the only element of the 1950s and 60s not to have survived its way into the current trend of midcentury modern design.  Today’s hanging appliances are inventive and arresting, environmentally conscious and creative.  From the colorblocked pendants crafted from recycled wine bottles by Jerry Kott to the rather literal medusae installations imagined by Roxyrussell, this collection sheds new light on what it means to flood a room with gorgeous illumination from a show-stopping source.
