High/Low: Cloud Pendant Lights

We love a floating sculptural pendant light, especially when hung in a serene bedroom where we go to seek comfort at the end of the day. We’ve found two similar looking cloud-like designs, one made from paper, the other Tyvek:


Above: The Varmluft Shade from Ikea is made from paper and comes in two sizes (26 inches and 18 inches in diameter). It starts at $4.99 for the smaller size. Pair it with an Ikea Hemma Cord made of PVC, $5, for a complete pendant. (And to source the rest of the bedroom, go to Steal This Look: Serene Scandinavian Winter Bedroom.)


Above: The Cloud Light from Raumgestalt, made from Tyvek with a zipper at the top to enable lightbulb changing, provides diffuse, dream-like illumination; €65. For another Tyvek cloud light, have a look at the Grace Suspension Lamp by Environment; $599 from Rypen, and the Grace Table Lamp, $499 from Environment.
