Standing to hanging lamp

Materials: KULLA standing lamp, iron wire

Description: This weekend I sold my antique chandelier, so I was chasing the city to find a new hanging lamp. All kinds and sorts I have considered; the €1428 Hexagonal chandelier designed by Jules Wabbes, €70 vintage retro lamp on the Dutch Ebay, even a €139 industrial imitation came along.

I have no idea how it happened, but as soon the antique chandelier left our house, I immediately start taking apart this standing IKEA lamp. I unscrewed the Kulla standard. Placed the shade-holder upside down to the fitting. I drilled a whole in the standard and placed and Iron wire between the standard and the ceiling. That’s about it.

I must admit that I was kind of proud to see the whole thing hanging.
