Glass Lion Lighting
By Alice Oglethorpe
If it seems like I’ve been on a bit of a lighting kick lately, that’s because it’s so dark outside that brightening up my home seems to be all I can think about. And one thing I’ve learned in my lamp research is that just because I want my lights to be practical doesn’t mean they can’t also be whimsical. Need proof? Just check out the line of pendant lights from Glass Lion Home. Each one is hand-made by Lori Small out of her home in the suburb of Saint Charles, Illinois. Small takes old dictionary pages, tissue paper, and other antique pages and covers paper lanterns to make pendants that are romantic, unique, and functional.
