I really like this idea for an office or a library. Convert an old globe into a pendant light! Seems easy enough. Buy a lamp kit at your local hardware store, take apart a globe and drill a larger hole for the light. Put remainder of light together.
Dramatic feel to this all neutral room with the black framed doors. Three pendant lights from West Elm are suspended over a knotty-surfaced farm table in the kitchen, one of the few holdovers from the homeowners' previous decor.
