Crave Worthy: Kevin McCarthy Shades


I discovered these gorgeous lighting fixtures over at Design*Sponge, who has such a killer eye for lovely home objects. The Kevin McCarthy lampshades use monofilimant, yarn and lanyard materials to create soft, glowy lighting.


Explaining his inspiration, McCarthy writes that, "the birth of my string lampshade series can be traced to an afternoon in 2003, when I found a string, drum-shape cast aside on a New York sidewalk. She became my muse. Kevin Patrick McCarthy light & shade melds the carefully homespun qualities of mid-century strings shades with a modern palette of shapes and colors, and a fashion veteran's attention to unique. high-quality materials."

Kevin McCarthy's hanging horizontal pendant lamp ($300) is the only lamp I've found available online, but if you're in the New York area, you can purchase his lamps directly here.
