Designer v high street: Le Klint 1970s 172 pendant light and the Rosa light by B&Q


We have featured the Le Klint 1970s 172 pendant light some time back, but now this stylish 70s pendant light has a cut-price competitor – the B&Q Rosa light.

The original 172 light (pictured left) was designed by Poul Christiansen back in 1971 and available in various sizes to fit the size of your room.

Prices start at £146 but go into four figures for the huge versions.
