Design by Nicolette Brunklaus.
Shady Tree pendants feature forests printed on the inside of the shade, allowing a little bit of the outdoors to come inside. The black outer shade takes on the silhouette of the trees once the light has been turned on. The white outer shade keeps the forest a small secret.
Dimensions 21.7"D X 16.5"H; equipped with 157" of wire. Uses 1 X 60W 120V E26 (medium base) incandescent lamp (not included).
Nicolette Brunklaus was educated as an artist, she worked as an autonomous artist until 1992. A big change in direction came in 1993 when she started to design interior products.
In 1998 she established her own label Brunklaus Amsterdam.
At this moment Brunklaus Amsterdam runs a wholesale company that sells products worldwide. The designs are seen in private houses as well as in public buildings such as hotels, offices and museums.
Brunklaus Amsterdam Lighting
Nicolette Brunklaus, Brunklaus Amsterdam - The Netherlands.
"There will always be those who want to express their individuality and search for inimitable, unique products".
The designs of Nicolette Brunklaus provide a refreshing contradiction. Brunklaus' creativity has juxtaposed old with new, solid with transparent, hard with soft throughout the collection, transforming materials as diverse as silk, velvet, and steel. The common thread? Brunklaus' recognition of a temporal, material world that can only survive through modern manipulation. The products serve a functional purpose: to provide contrast and add depth to their surrounding spaces. The world is a village. There is an obvious transition towards uniformity which influences the buying habits of the audience and the interiors worldwide. Therefore Brunklaus continuously keeps creating new, unique personal designs. She believes that consumers recognize the stories that exceptional design can tell.
Already in 1998, at the cradle of her company 'Brunklaus Interior Products', she was following this drive, creating under her own brand, 'Brunklaus Amsterdam'. Since then, her business has evolved from a modest mail-order company to a hugely successful, well-respected wholesale corporation which distributes world-wide. Brunklaus herself has become a Dutch design icon.
Although producing a series of products, it is important that the design has its own, personal character:
"Not only is the quality of the object vital, but I also want it to be a special design that enhances the surrounding space".
Unique and fun pendant
I have known about this pendant for several years and always wanted to use it. Haven't installed it yet--wish it took a higher watt lamp. My client loves it.

THIS is how to get a WOW!
I love this shade! It is just the right amount of slightly oversized for my table, but it makes a statement. The black is uber-cool and I was happy to find a shade that was different than the norm. The trees show through perfectly when the light is on. My only complaints are that the 60W is a little dim (have had to search for a dimmable CFL to get a higher wattage output) and the black canopy and chord do not match the quality of the shade.

This light turned out better than we imagined. We ordered it because we liked the interior trees so much - but then when it arrived, the outside was a much prettier/nicer fabric than I originally thought so overall we really love it!
Two quick notes: 1) The inside is a bit more brown/beige than I thought so take note in case that doesn't work with your decor. 2) The cord is white- not sure this is the most premium look, but it works - it would look nicer if it were metal/black.

Question about cord
Question: Is the cord )for the white version? just plain white or are there metallic accents? (I'm hoping just plain white).
