The design of this branching brass lamp is somehow both timeless and unique. Inspired by the hardware of 1930s lighting, this chic product takes on a form that's simultaneously natural and quite contemporary.

An arboreal arrangement is achieved with slender metal bars that are screwed together into a crooked composition with small, three-sided connectors. Porcelain sockets are stuck to the ends of every twig-like bough of the pendant lamp, facilitating the hooking up of transparent lightbulbs. Like glowing golden foliage, these globes cast rays in every direction, producing sufficient illumination for a single room. Søren Rose's Tribeca Franklin Chandelier channels the glamor of early 19th century New York city with this piece that's named after one magnificent neighborhood.
