Okay, initially we noticed the terrific dining set and pinball machine in this photo tagged apartmenttherapymontreal. But what really struck a chord with us on second glance was the lighting over the table: those are actually clarinets!

AT reader Pat took these old clarinets and refurbished them as pendant lights for use in his loft. We always see inexpensive old musical instruments that no longer work properly. How to use them? Well, we're guessing Pat saw a lamp shade in the horned shape of the clarinet and, voila!

We'd like to know more about the wiring: did this have to be done professionally? What type of bulb fits a clarinet? Nice job, Pat! See more of Pat's loft, and his friend Eve's loft, too, on Eve's flickr photostream.
