I Want This

Pretty things on my Etsy wishlist: Lighting.

Made By Ild lighting - doorsixteen.com

Made by Ild / Ice Cream to Memphis pendant
Aside from being insanely cute, this lamp has the best name. Also, it’s made in part out of a bowl from IKEA’s 2013 TRENDIG line, which is just brilliant. (Made by Ild has another lamp made from a TRENDIG cup. Love!)

Marz Designs lighting - doorsixteen.com

Marz Designs / Bright Beads “Aleenta” pendant
Marz Designs’ lights look like beautiful wooden jewelry. So elegant! They also sell a turned-wood hook that’s perfect for hanging a plug-in pendant.

Railis lighting - doorsixteen.com

Railis / Driftwood Block table lamp
Siberian driftwood turned into lighting in Iceland. OK! I really love this. I’d be happy to just having sitting on a table, even if it didn’t have a bulb in it.

Sazerac Stitches lighting - doorsixteen.com

Sazerac Stitches / Mint Steel and Brass sconce
This beauty almost made it onto my list of sconce finalists, but I knew the color wouldn’t be right in my apartment. It would be so, so gorgeous somewhere else, though! The material combination is so pleasing.

TwReborn lighting - doorsixteen.com

TwReborn / Origami Lamp Shades
Candy-colored folded cardboard. I’ve had my eye on these lamps for a long time, and I’d love to have the hot pink one hanging over my desk. With no included cord set, a relatively high price, and an item originating in Taiwan, you’re taking a bit of a risk, though… [UPDATE: Several people have commented and emailed about Dutch brand Snowpuppe’s beautiful origami lamps. Somehow Snowpuppe never crossed my radar until today, so I wanted to make sure to link to them in the post in addition to the comments—please check out their shop!]

I want to add an aside to this post, regarding something I tend to get into more on social media than on my blog. I spend an inordinate amount of time maintaining my Etsy lists. Every day I check to see what the people I follow have added to their lists, and then I look at all of the suggestions Etsy’s algorithms has made for me, and then the next thing I know, I’m down the rabbit-hole. And y’know, for all of the very legitimate criticism of Etsy’s policy changes regarding handmade goods and their enforcement of various policies across the board, I still love Etsy for the platform it provides to legitimate sellers of handmade and vintage goods. I’ve discovered so many awesome designers and artists through Etsy over the past eight years, so rather than focus solely on the problems with the company, I choose to focus on supporting the individual shop owners instead. Hence, my Etsy lists. OK, that’s all!

    Hi!
    Just wanted to let you know that the Dutch company Snowpoppe makes lamps pretty similar to the taiwanese origami one, but with cords (neutral and colored ones) included. They are everywhere on Scandinavian interior shops (and probably Dutch ones and other places too, but I’m Danish so I wouldn’t know!), so you should be able to find someone who ships to you. Here is a link with pictures: http://www.luxoliving.dk/studio-snowpuppe/🙂

      Thanks so much, Stine! That’s a much more reasonable price, too. I suspect the VAT is very high, but I’ll look into this further. Thank you 🙂

      Oooh, this shop in Portugal has some very nice ones, too…

    Hello Anna,
    I just wanted to say thank you for featuring my mint and brass Loa Sconce! Believe it or not, I found it while browsing Blogger a few minutes ago. I love your blog and truly appreciate any additional exposure to my Etsy shop.

    Thanks again,
    Kirsten from Sazerac Stitches

    P.S. I’d love to do a collaboration with you for any future lighting needs. 🙂

    I love seeing other people’s Etsy’s picks! It’s like way, way, way too overwhelming for me so I always need someone else to curate the site for me lol

    Great list Anna. I love the first pendant- the name alone!- and it reminds me a lot of a similar pendant made by a fab design duo from my home city: http://www.daniel-emma.com/Cherry-on-the-Bottom and the Japanese dango inspired one: http://www.daniel-emma.com/Ball-Ball-Ball
    Have a look a their work, I think you might like it.

      These are cool, Kat!! Funny, I’m not a huge fan of Memphis design, but I really like a lot of the later work it’s inspired. 🙂

    Hi Anna, Just saw that the designers behind Bookhou – Arounna Khounnoraj and John Booth – have their new live/work space featured in the most recent issue of Covet Garden. I remember you having, being a big fan of, one of their bags and thought I’d pass it along: http://issuu.com/covetgarden/docs/issue57

      Thanks, Jacy! I saw this on Arounna’s Instagram and have it bookmarked to look it this weekend. I’m saving it for a treat! 🙂 🙂

    Thanks for doing these Etsy lists!! And I’m so grateful for your logic. Love those pendants using the trending pieces!!

    Studio Snowpuppe is awesome! I’ve had one of their lampshades (the “Chesnut” model) in my dining room for about three years now. It looks great with a colorful NUD cord. The quality is excellent; the paper they use is very sturdy. I’ve even been able to clean mine with a slightly damp cloth.

(I like how you support designers handmading goods). My Etsy shop is happy too with all this new visitors 🙂 So thanks again Anna and keep in touch !

    Etsy is the best! I go especially crazy around Christmas trying to find more unique and quality gifts. Love that sconce!

  • Reply Sheila August 17, 2015 at 12:06 am

    I love that Ild pendant! Also, it instantly made me think of this one, which I stumbled across on a recent trip down the Pinterest rabbit hole: http://www.torremato.com/en/collections/bon-ton.html (between Pinterest and Etsy, it’s a wonder I accomplish anything, ever…)

    • Reply Anna @ D16 August 18, 2015 at 3:31 pm

      Those are really cool, Sheila!!
