A while back we admired this vintage fishing basket repurposed as a pendant light, spotted in the home of Hitoshi Uchida.

It's among the many details we admire in Uchida's home in Kamakura, Japan, which was featured on The Selby. For those not traveling to global antique markets (Uchida is the proprietor of cult favorite J'Antiques Tokyo), we went trawling for sources for creating something similar.

Above: For something similar, consider the South Bend Floating Wire Basket; $14.99 via Amazon, and add a Burnside Classic Cloth-Covered Cord Pendant; $100 at Rejuvenation.
