Tom Dixon Beat Wide White

Inspired by the sculptural simplicity of brass cooking pots and traditional water vessels on the subcontinent. This pendant light is spun and hand-beaten by renowned skilled craftsmen of Moradabad in Northern India. Made from brass with a white lacquer exterior.

What's cool about it, aside from its flashy underside finish, is that the hand-hammered bell is perfectly smooth on the top. The white finish to the bell provided an unobtrusive pendant for the room with just a peek of flare.

I installed the low-voltage self-adhesive LED strip lights $15 at Amazon, and connected the AC adapter to get it all installed a tested. I then spliced into the AC adapter to add the motion detector and daylight sensor, so that it only activates when it gets dark in the room. I mounted the motion detector in the toe kicks and the room is lighted as I enter enough to walk into the kitchen at night for a nightcap.

Hello Bubble Lamp!

It's a big day. Thanks to craigslist, we found a buyer for the many pendant lighting fixtures previously installed in the kitchen and entry. There were two of these in the same room:

And now to our eyes' delight, we get to enjoy the beauty of our new George Nelson Saucer Lamp! Miles seems to like it... Thank you to my brother for installing it perfectly for us.
