Love love love artichoke pendant

Kelsey is irrationally in love with the artichoke light, but we don't want to pay for a real PH :)

Artichoke Pendant Light Poul Henningsen didn’t have electricity growing up in Denmark, and while designing his ingenious light fixtures, he fondly remembered the soft glow of the gas lamps of his youth. He experimented with concentric tiers of metal bands in an effort to direct light to just the right spot, distribute it evenly and reduce glare. The work resulted in his highly successful PH collection for Louis Poulsen. His elaborate Artichoke pendant light of 1958 illuminates the kitchen island in this new custom house in Vancouver, British Columbia, by design-build firm Kerr Construction and Design. In the seating area to the left is a glimpse of a sofa that Danish architect-designer Finn Juhl created in 1951 for Michigan’s Baker Furniture. Juhl was inspired by abstract painters and often worked with teak. The wood — inexpensive and readily available at the time due to military clearing exercises in Southeast Asia — is a hallmark of Danish modern furniture.
