More fine art than light fixture, Lindsey Adelman’s custom handblown glass pendants are major investment pieces (pricing is generally calculated at $1,600 per globe). Adelman’s pieces can be commissioned directly from her studio, or through Matter and Room in New York, and the Future Perfect in Brooklyn or LA.

Above: A piece from Adelman’s Knotty Bubbles collection for Future Perfect in Brooklyn, which she says is "evocative of shipwrecked pirate’s treasure. The one-off, hand-blown glass light fixtures are bound and tethered with intricately knotted rope; the barnacle-like forms are then rolled in 23 karat gold."

Above: Six-Globe Branching Bubble, a mix of white and white with gold foil globes and warm white LED bulbs.

Above: Three-Globe Bubble in oil-rubbed bronze.

Above: Birds and Bees handblown glass and cloth-covered cord table lights; $950 at Future Perfect.
