Some light fixtures do more than just illuminate a space. Here are seven dramatic, room-making pieces we can't get enough of.

Above: This is Jean Prouvé's Potence lamp, spotted on DWR. Prouvé's straightforward, elegantly industrial style has never seemed more current, and you can spot the Potence's dramatic cantilever gracing a huge variety of spaces. (If you're feeling crafty, there's a DIY version here.)

I first spotted Constance Guisset's beautifully dramatic Vertigo suspension lamp in Amandine and Amaury's Paris apartment, and I've been in love ever since. In a brreeze it spins slowly, like a mobile, and creates a lovely pattern of light and shadow on the wall. Here you can see the white and black versions in homes from L'Instant Parisien and Home Adore.

• Vertigo suspension lamp, 695.00€ for small and 795.00€ for large from Petite Friture

The Dear Ingo chandelier, by Ron Gilad for Moooi, is simple in its concept — a bunch of desk lamps welded to a center ring — but delightfully creepy in its execution. Here you can see black and white versions spotted on Oliver Yaphe and Yatzer.

Ingo Maurer's Zettel'z 5 chandelier presents a sort of delightful chaos: light shining through a series of handwritten notes. If you choose you can replace the papers with some of your own. Spotted on Wallpaper.

This copper pendant lamp by Tom Dixon adds a little bit of style and a little bit of shine to any room. Spotted on Home Stories.
