'bird-cage pendant light' by Mathieu Challières, and the sweet wire lights of Marie Christophe
Such a sweet, playful lamp would be perfect for a nursery, or maybe even a home office... (More of Mathieu Challières's work can be found here.)
And speaking of les beaux luminaires francais, check out the light-hearted, sixties-inflected wire-work of Marie Christophe, made known to me by dear ada last month, and for that I am so glad! (when I have a little extra dough.....oh, the trouble I will cause!)
