10 Favorites: Terracotta Pendant Lights

Issue 20 · Greek Isles · May 19, 2014

We've been slightly obsessed with terracotta pendants ever since we spotted dozens of them hanging from the ceiling of Souk, a Lebanese street-food market and cafe on the coastline of Athens. K-studio, design team behind Souk, introduced the pendants to add a handmade, warm touch to the otherwise modern space. We plan to do the same.

Here are 10 of our favorite terracotta lights:
