i realize these have been mentioned in cyberspaceÂ before, but i am still surprised and amazed by these simple, stunning pendant lamps from husband and wife teamÂ jeremy pyles and mary welch, for their company niche modern of new york. there is a wonderful versatility in their minimal, clean lined pieces, and the use of low-wattage edison bulbsÂ give the modern silhouettes a balanced, retro modern feel. nicheÂ believes thatÂ the best design is found in fusing classic contrasts together: light and darkness, strength and delicacy, edge and elegance. a thoughtful variety of shape and color choices within the line makes it all the more satisfying. check out some of the newest pieces in the 2007 collection:
