For someone looking to achieve a subtle industrial aesthetic within his home, the 2x4 Pendant Light would be perfect for the job. Designed to serve a different practical function from that of its basic state, the piece is transformed from a structural to an illuminating object.

The lumber segment measures 24 inches in length and displays its lovely wood grain texture, complete with dark knot marks. It's been embedded with LED lighting behind a frosted glass cover, guiding bright beams downwards with all other sides closed. Whitewashing to the timber provides protection and an elegant aesthetic. The AlexAllen 2x4 Pendant Light suspends delicately from the ceiling by invisible mono-filament on either side of a slack red cord. Stats for Simple Timber Illuminators Trending: Older & Buzzing
