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.
