CableCup Organizes Wires Inside Out For Hanging Lighting

We love ceiling medallions. They're an affordable way to complement overhead hanging lighting, and bring a bit of contrast and visual detail to an area of the home that can often feel neglected (the ceiling). Here's our current Plain Jane living room ceiling, which has a great vintage Danish modern hanging lamp we inherited from the previous tenant (and that we plan to paint). You'll notice it's looking like it need a little love.

Our own living room's pendant lamp needs the aid of a CableCup, pronto!

The CableCup designed by Jonas Forsman was amongst the winners of the Swedish Design Awards, with a simple and ingenious way to hide away all the wiring that comes with housing the electrical hardware of an overhead lamp; the design allows for the wires to be properly routed than the whole cup flips inside out to be mounted onto the overhead housing, perfect for use with a ceiling medallion.

The CableCup can be ordered for international delivery via Scandinavian Design Center for $13.58, so we might be placing an order ourselves...our neglected Bumling lamp needs the help.
