|Miconos Collection by Artemide, designed by Ernesto Gismondi|
|Bubbles Globe Pendant by Sonneman Lighting|
|Candelaria Chandelier by Robert Abbey|
|Bulb Pendant by AndTradition, a 2000 Sofie Refer design and winner of the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design, 2001 Good Design Award.|
