I love it when something is so uncool, a designer picks it up, reinvents it and makes you look at it in a new way. These lights, made from the type of cut-glass decanters you can get at at antiques fairs (or boot fairs or charity shops, for that matter) for a song, were designed by Lee Broom for a new London bar, Coquine. Some of them have a gold finish added, while others are au naturel. Lee points out on his website that they’re not limited editions – he’ll carry on making them until he stops finding them. I reckon they’ll have a pretty long run.
