If there is one single piece of decor that can instantly change the look and feel of a space, it’s lighting. Whether you’re looking to add visual interest to a space with a beautiful focal point or trying to subdivide a room without putting walls up, a little bit of carefully-placed lighting can go a long way.

Nowadays there are more lighting options than ever- you don’t have to buy from the big box stores, as there are many designers/makers doing their own selection of ceiling pendants and lamps.

An example?

Allied Maker is a New York based design studio established in 2003 by Ryden Rizzo specialized in contemporary lighting with heavy influences in geometric simplicity, serious craftsmanship, and high-quality materials.

The founder – Ryden Rizzo – is an incredible woodworker. Having studied Design & Technology at Parsons School for Design and Vermont Instruments School, Rizzo finished his studies under woodworking master where he would go on to build his own classical guitar. And we’ve been pretty enamored with Rizzo’s design ever since we saw his first lamp.

Composed of a delicate balance of metal, wood, glass, and even fabric, each handsome fixture is “minimalist, but expressive.”

Don’t know why, but these lamps remind me some of the interiors made by Adolf Loos in the early 19’s century. Could be the shape, could be the material… but definitely the contemporary vintage, industrial look of these lamps has captured me. All the prices below are delivery excluded.
