Drum Shade Suspension Lights
A subgroup of pendant lights, drum shade suspension lights tend to have shades shaped like--wait for it--drums. Most have a semi-translucent shade that provides a general ambience while controlling the direct and indirect light they offer downward and upwards, respectively. Within that description, however, there remains a remarkable diversity of available designs.
For a touch of mid-century opulence, Innermost's Marble and Masiero's Vegas S RD have you covered. Tradition with a twist is what Kundalini Lighting's New York drum shade pendant offers, while Le Pupette from Karman's ceramic frame and exposed bulb breaks all the rules. Twiggy Large from Foscarini, Boon from Moooi, and Contardi's Circus So are all different flavours of the classic modern drum shade, which gets shaken up with Kenneth Cobonpue's C-U C-ME and Slamp's Woody.
Friendly, austere, dignified, and frivolous characters are all to be found among the many suspension lights with drum shades--click on and find them.
