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?

I have a things for hats, so I like these lights. Just so long as they are one of a few quirky touches within the same room.

Would be awesome in a men's upscale clothing store, or in a chic bar. I could see this in a chic modern boudoir, too! I like them!

I would not like them for my home, but in the right setting they could possibly work. I agree with tdamji-perfect for a store.

i think these would be cool in a store, rather than in a residential setting

It's quirky and it would work with my stuff, which is odd and eclectic. I like the derby hat, wouldn't bother with the top hats.

Interesting. I sort of like them because they are novel, but I think they are not real practical. Maybe they would be good in a men's store or tux shop.

Ahhh I dunno what to they ARE cute and quicky and different...and I'm sure lots of people would compliment them... BUT I would get tired of them quickly too and they would loose they quirkiness quickly.
