The New Bestlite Collection, Brass Included

December 12, 2013

During a recent house remodel, I was faced with the difficult decision of choosing lights for our kitchen island. The options were endless, but I finally settled on two black Bestlite pendants, and haven’t looked back since. Inspired by Bauhaus design and in continuous production since the 1930s, the Bestlite was on Churchill’s desk at Whitehall. Now made by lighting and furniture company Gubi of Copenhagen, the latest Bestlite Collection features new colors and brass fitting that apply to all Bestlite fixtures. And we don’t mind the added glamor one bit.

They’re available as floor, table, and pendant lamps, as well as sconses. Photo via Nordic Design.
