Simply Delightful: Wool Felt Pendant Lamp by FELT Studio


Finally completing our long-overdue patio makeover has left me itching to start another decorating project. Of course, this is complicated by the fact that we aren’t living in our own home and therefore don’t have as much free reign as I would like to go on a decorating spree. So I’ve settled on trying to convince my mother of more subtle changes. For example, she could hardly complain if I replaced the outdated, builder surplus light fixture over her dining table with this beauty!

The dining table has its own nook carved out in the kitchen, but because of the lighting, it has never really felt like a true dining room space. This beautiful felt creation could help fix that in a flash. Made by FELT studio, it is made of 100% wool felt that would otherwise be thrown away. It’s not a huge fixture, with just a 13″ diameter on top and 11″ on the bottom — really more of a pendant than a chandelier. But that’s a good thing, because this isn’t a huge space, and I’m not sure if my mother would agree to something more substantial. Of course, there’s always the little issue of price…

Why It’s Green:

  • Made from 100% wool felt die-cut waste material

Price: $396

    Would you believe I’ve actually had some of this felt? In the education department of the museum I used to work at we got big bags of cast-off felt donations from a local industrial felt company. I wondered what I could do with these pieces, since they were so sculptural. Now I know! I think we still have some around there, but they’re definitely not $400.
