Or you could just pull your garland light apart

The designer who brought you the now ubiquitous light fixtures below has branched out (ha ha) into jewelry creations. Actually, it wasn't a great stretch on Tord Boontje's part.

The jewelry is sold in packages of four different charm sets to be combined for that whimsical Etsy/"I'm a crafter!" feeling.
I'm trying to make up my mind - like-y or over the Tord?

Well then, I like them very very much. And everyone should high-tail to Anita's shop and purchase several.

i have one of those lampshade things, it's upstairs in the original packaging and there it has remained. am i terrible?

first it's orla and then it's tord.

Hmm I actually think it works better than the lamps. I never got into the lamps just too messy for me but these have more potential to my mind
... and on surreal side notes... the word verification for my post is "borte"

I love the way the light fixtures look, but I know mine would be a glob of dust bunnies in a matter of months.

One thing I like is that Tord laser cut vinyl panel/curtain thing-y, but again--dust magnet.

I applaud Tord for at least being interesting and following an aesthetic that once seemed rather unique and independent of whatever else was going (esp. considering when these things were first introduced.)

So--yes, like-y, but no can have-y!
