Pendant light lamp cord fixture kit


#1

Anyone here know of any cool, affordable, stylish source for something like this? Switch and dimmer on the cord is preferred, as well as braided fabric cover…

I’ve got a project or 3 of pendant style lamp shades I’ve designed that I want to try out, but looking to find some cool hardware to use with each of them. :wink:

I’ve already done a bunch of searching on Google and various sites, and found some things to order and try, but wondered if anyone here knows of something different or unique that I may have not discovered yet. :slight_smile:
Thanks in advance!

This one looks cool, and appears to have a way to fasten a lamp shade to with a retainer ring and threads on the outside.

Cheapest braided cord one I’ve found here

IKEA sells plastic ones for $6, braided for $10:

This, can’t beat ikea prices. I’ve modified a lot of those. If you find yourself in Europe you can take a look at www.snoerboer.nl they carry pretty much every type of braided cord.

You might look at this company https://www.colorcord.com/ Although not particularly cheap, the choices are extensive.

I like Ikea’s because they come in several colors and the price is definitely right. I made this cardboard and paper lamp with a pretty green one. It doesn’t have a switch, but you could add one or plug it into a timer like I did. It comes on in the evenings and turns off at bedtime.

that’s lovely. i keep meaning to either order some or drive the 90 minutes to get them; i want to hang some grow lights in my loft for my little planters.

Great idea! My closest Ikea is only 45 minutes away, but it’s a pain and my husband hates going (except when he’s eating meatballs). However, he does feel strongly that our marriage is secure because it’s survived so many trips.

Yeah, totally. And I designed the first one based on one of those cheap white ones from Ikea. And it works fine, but looks awful… :confused: and looks cheap. I wouldn’t buy one with it as a fixture, and would be embarrassed to sell a really nice lasercut piece with poor looking hardware… but yeah, the price is right! :wink:

haha for sure! i do think the braided ones are nice though, especially if you put a shade on the end!
