Ideas for Plug-In Ceiling Fixtures for a Kid's Room

Good Questions

Q: I have a design dilemma that I'm hoping someone can help with! My kid's room has no hardwired lighting so I am looking for a cute plug-in ceiling fixture that I can hang in their room. I'm kinda liking the Ikea Knappa because it is plastic versus the paper of a paper lantern, which I just kinda feel is a little scary, but the Knappa is still not quite perfect. Any thoughts on anything similar?

Editor: It's out of date but Apartment Therapy did a small roundup of pendant lamps that aren't hard wired a few years ago. What might be valuable though is reading through the reader comments on the post - many people suggest simply buying a cheap cord kit and choosing any shade you like. Readers, what advice do you have for Nadia? Do you have ideas for a great pendant lamp she can plug in?
