There was a time when I thought Brooklyn designers were going a little overboard with pill and drug-related imagery. Everything seemed to have some sort of prescription drug reference used in an “edgy” way, so I developed a pretty good knee-jerk reaction to pill-related imagery. Despite my hesitance toward that theme, I’m really enjoying these “Pil” pendant lamps from New Zealand’s Designtree studio. Made with hand-turned logs, glass and LED lights, these pendants look as beautiful lit as they do hanging in their off position. You can check out the full range of styles right here, but I think that clear-glass version is just about perfect. xo, grace
