I’ve had this idea for a hanging light fixture for years now….upside down lamps. It’s funny because I thought I got the idea from a display at Urban Outfitters, but when I finally found the picture I took (in 2006), it wasn’t an upside down lamp but just a couple hanging shades.
These lights would look really fun in a corner perhaps with a reading chair, but were not what I had envisioned. So my search for using upside down lamps continued. I found a pictures of a place in L.A. called S Bar.
The design of this bar was inspiring on multiple levels. I love, love, love the unique lounge chairs paired with the long tables! The hanging lamps are all different with similar sized bases and shades. Look at the wall to wall area rugs and the frame to frame portraits on one wall. There is a lot going on here and I would love to see first hand how it all looks in the dim evening light.
