Wouldn’t you though?
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Interiors features here.
Well hellooooo! Just check out these industrial metal downlighters (I know!) from Cargo. I’ve had my antennae out for some cool downlighters since I went over to a friend’s house last month and came back with a rather nasty case of pendant lighting envy. Hers were bright yellow, three of them in a row over a massive central island in a kitchen that was otherwise quite muted. It looked really cool *sigh*.
My kitchen is the real late Fifties deal – about the size of a small prison cell with a larder (I’m not joking) and the surface area of an air mail stamp. But when, when, oh when I get a new kitchen, these lights will look supercool. They come in brass, grey or cream, so can be ‘Shoreditched’ up or toned down, depending on your home and taste. And at £19 a pop I’ll be changing the colour every six months!
