Love It or Hate It? Jake Phipps Hat Pendant Lights

The Jake Phipps Jeeves & Wooster series of pendant lights was designed as a playful take on lighting with a real sense of cultural identity. The bowler and top hat are classic British cultural icons reflecting a bygone era of imperialism, class divide, and eccentricity. Phipps has reinvented the felt head coverings for the retail market in a era when dapper modern design is becoming more accessible to all social spheres, but these hat pendant lights are still beyond my reach. Jeeves's bowler hat ($429) is lined with a refined gold interior, whilst Wooster's top hat ($480) has a distinguished silver lining.

I can see these witty pendants hanging in a men's hotel sitting room, or an entrance foyer near a standing coat rack. They won't work with all décor, but matched with the right furnishings and accents, these luminaries could be brilliant. What do you think?
