Inspired by Buckminster Fuller, the Dark + Stormy pendant light shows off its natural wood grain in a unique way. The woodsy design casts a warm down light, making it great on its own or grouped in a cluster above a dining table, a bar, or your favorite reading nook. The lamps are meticulously handmade from solid walnut.

The craftsmen combine 20 pieces of wood to create the so-called “pre-form.” Then, the lamps are passed to a master wood turner and lathed into a spherical shape. This is where the magic or the heartache happens, as sometimes these pieces don’t make it off the lathe in one piece. The lucky ones are finished with a hand-spun aluminum reflector. The lights are available with either an eight- or 10-foot cloth cord, the short of which is adjustable and comes with a ceiling canopy.
