You don't have to go whole hog with a collection of them, one globe makes a nice statement, too. From Christy and John's Logan Square Bungalow
A bit of a variation on the ol' light up globe. You could also cut it in half for a shade (though you'd be sacrificing its orginal purpose). From Adrienne's House Tour
Some comments from this original post pointed out the eyeball creep-factor of this set-up. Maybe attach the globes from their side to tone that aspect down?
