A few weeks ago, we featured a roundup of colorful pendant lamps. However, most renters lack the ability to update their light fixtures. Here are some solutions where the only requirements for installation are a plug and a hook. FROM LEFT TO RIGHT:
1 - Bubble Chandelier by Jean Pelle, Etsy, $350
2 - HI-LIGHT pendant lamp by resurface, Etsy, $130
3 - Orb Pendant - Cream (Medium) , Target, $45.99
4 - The Workshop Cage Lamp by Roost, Velocity Art & Design, $143
5 - White Wash Bamboo Pendant Lamp, CB2, $99.95
If these don't suit your fancy, Urban Outfitters and IKEA sell cord kits that can be outfitted with various lamp shades.
Good resources for shades for these cord kits include IKEA and Mibo at Velocity Art & Design.
