There's something magical about handmade lights. This beautiful pendant light would look amazing in many living rooms. Even though it is a limited edition and somewhat expensive, it gave me some ideas for how to get something similar and a lot cheaper in my own place.

This amazing lamp was made by Arturo Alvarez as an homage to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. It comes in a unique color combination and will be produced in a limited edition of 500 lights. The Ventopop pendant light is available as a table lamp or suspension light in two sizes.

Each Arturo Alvarez is handmade by trained artisans. This means that no two pieces are exactly the same, which is kind of beautiful for such a large piece. These lamps are numbered and signed as well. You could almost say that it's more a piece of art than just an ordinary lamp. It's pretty pricey on Y Lighting, but you can find alternatives on Etsy.

Take a look at this lamp from UniqueGlassFusions. While it's not as majestic and unique as the Ventopop, it's still a very distinctive lighting solution. The stained glass makes for a one of a kind decorative lighting fixture. There are three different sizes available and they cost between $145 to $215.
