One of Apartment Therapy's favorite shops, Scout, is featuring the work of Ted Harris in a month long event. It begins today, with an opening reception at 6pm. Chicago designer Ted Harris is known for repurposing items in new and beautiful ways, such as these globe pendants...

...from Michelle Kaufmann's Smart Home, filled with a collection of used bulbs.

In Lisa Cregan's NYT article about the show, Harris says "Since I was a kid, I've always seen beauty in what's been cast off". Through his work, the rest of us can too.

The collection at Scout contains 50 examples of Harris' lighting in all shapes and sizes. For more info: Scout
