If you are looking for something retro with real impact, then we would like to point you in the direction of the Ipanema multi-boom pendant lamp at Jonathan Adler. But note that this doesn’t come cheap.
But that’s pretty much stating the obvious with this particular retailer, especially with the UK store, which always seems pricier for the same item than the US store.
Anyway, regardless of price, we still love this light, which has a 1960s space age vibe about it. If we had told you this was an Italian vintage piece from that era, you might well have believed us.
But this is a modern design, complete with five adjustable arms and with a polished nickel and white finish, the white being the cased glass shades.
A stunning design, but with a UK price of £1,825, this is a serious investment piece. If you are in the US, you can get it for $2,095, which is the equivalent of £1,685. However, on the plus side, there is a Black Friday event on right now with 20 per cent off designs and free shipping – so things might well balance out this weekend. See the retailer’s site for details of that.
