I love a good pendant lamp because they can pack a lot of personality into a small, functional punch. These cage suspension lamps by Diesel with Foscarini, inspired by miner's lamps, have a great utilitarian quality to them yet they're modern and sculptural, too:
Hanging one of these would be a great way to bring some texture into a room. This lamp might present something of a dusting challenge, but I find that good design is worth a little extra dusting effort, don't you?
