You guys! That hanging bare bulb in my office closet isn’t just a safety hazard or code violation… it’s trendy chic! I just need to add a curlicue cage around it.

    OMG, they are $200! I think you should come up with a BHG-ish idea to make a cheaper alternative :-)

    These are too cool for school! The hardware is pretty killer. I kinda like them clustered, too — like a funky downtown chandelier.

    Agreed! We’ve been searching for the perfect pendant lights like this to hang over our nightstands. Great find!

    Hi Nicole. Great idea. I got my cage from ebay for $60. Much cheaper than the Anthro version.
