Colander Pendant From Shades of Light: Love It or Hate It?

Love It or Hate It? Colander Pendant

I've come across DIY light fixtures made from colanders in the past, which have a crafty, clever, and retro vibe. But for some reason this Colander Pendant ($195) from Shades of Light doesn't have the same effect for me. Maybe it's because the fixture is manufactured, not homemade? Or because the bulb hangs below the "shade," exposed and dangling? Or because I know I could make my own for the price of, well, a colander. Whatever it is, I'm just not sold. How about you? What do you think?

It looks too "new" and too cheesy. I like the idea, but I'd make my own with a brighter colander, and definitely have the lightbulb set higher.

I don't like it, for all of the reasons you mentioned.

this would be interesting in a restaurant kitchen, but i'd never like this in a home.

I'm with you, I like the idea of it, but there's something about the execution that's off. I think for me it's the low hanging bulb.
