In love with a German, all over again. German designers Benjamin Hopf & Constantin Wortmann have swept me off my pedicured feet with their Liquid Raindrop Pendants ($199- $568 ). Their luxe lighting gives off a soft, warm glow in a shape that has trendy teardrop appeal but is not so ephemeral as those lava lamps from long ago. Their subtle balance between the feeling of light and water is simply mesmerizing. I love how it can make a simple table and chairs against white walls look so effortlessly chic. If only money fell from the sky like raindrops, I could stake my claim to them . . .
