We love the look of linen pendants, and have previously posted on how you can make your own Rustic Linen Lampshade. Well, for those of you who shy away from DIY projects, there’s hope: CB2 recently came out with an attractive and affordable linen pendant, and we weren’t surprised to find a higher-priced version by Italian furniture maker Cattelan Italia. Here they are at opposite ends of the price spectrum:


Above: The Dream Pendant Lamp, designed by Modus Studio for Cattelan Italia, is a suspended ceiling shade made from natural linen and can be used on its own or in a group; $525 each (the price decreases if you order in multiples; two shades, for instance, are $825). 


Above: The Linen Pendant Lamp from CB2 has a linen shade and a steel canopy with nickel finish; $69.95.

We love linen bed sheets, too. Have a look at A New Linen Line Inspired by Modernists. To peruse all our textile posts, go to Fabric & Linens.
