IKEA Maskros Pendant

Remember how the Maskros Pendant was all over the design blogs after IKEA showed it at the latest ICFF? And it was supposed to be in select US IKEA stores by August? I think the light would look great in my bedroom, and it is now in stock at my nearest IKEA! I’m going to have to take a little trip out there to see it in person…

    To change the light bulb, you just reach up in the center. It helps to have someone reach in from the side to steady it, too. It’s not difficult, though, and the fixture uses only low-wattage bulbs, so once you get a CFL in there it won’t be an issue for years.

    We have it in the dining room, it’s huge, I like the hugeness. I did have to hack it with some frosted plastic around the bulb because you can see right through the fixture. The good news about cleaning is that the paper is somewhat resilient, so you can dust normally and even aim the vacuum at it. The bad news, of course, is that any kind of stain is permanent. So when we had a ladybug problem this fall, and the ladybugs were drawn to the light, hanging around and pooping on it… yeah. I really wish they sold refills, too.

    Oh I’ve seen that too and it is HUGE! Actually changing the bulb is the least of my concern, it’s cleaning it that’s bothering me.
