Description from Design Within Reach
Inspired by the natural forms of the flower and expertly crafted to embody the paradoxical elements of simplicity and complexity which make for truly intriguing design. The Stamen pendant is gorgeously unique, sexy and subtle. Quietly stunning.
When opening a homewares store in SoHo, Jeremy Pyles and Mary Welch were unable to find lights that satisfied their super picky sensibilities.” Then Jeremy saw a man selling blown glass vases out of the back of his truck. The glass designer wasnt sure he could create the shape Jeremy was looking for telling him that glass is not meant to curve in on itself” but the two of them kept at it, eventually creating three pendants to light the front of the Niche store. The lights werent for sale, but customers kept asking for them and a new business was soon born. Made in U.S.A.
- Stamen Pendants are made of hand-blown glass, and no two are exactly the same (like snowflakes).
- The result is a play of light and dark, strength and delicateness, simple lines and lush colors.
- The fixture is designed around the shape of the bulb (included): a tubular dimmable incandescent 120V/75W, which Jeremy selected after studying 30 or more bulbs.
- Sapphire (Blue), Chocolate (Brown), Smoke (Green), Plum (Purple), Crimson (Red), Amber (Yellow)
