When we think of copper we may picture those gorgeous and highly praised copper pots and pans. Or we may even think of copper in its oxidized forms, as on the awnings of old railway stations or historic buildings, for example. Perhaps that is why this copper orb light fixture is so surprising and fun.

These copper globes (most likely all by Tom Dixon - his design in the copper finish is becoming a modern classic) are a refreshing alternative to the silver and steel lighting so popular in today's pendant and hanging lights.
