One would be inclined to bring these Forest Lights into his or her home with the intention of pulling natural references indoors. These items would look absolutely lovely amidst contemporary interiors, yet you will also find a collection of the pendant lamps in an unexpected location.

Ceramicist Chari Cohen handcrafted 40 of the tree bark-textured lampshades for installation in a midwifery birthing center in Toronto. Separating itself from the typical clinical atmosphere of maternity departments, this institution strove to exude warmth with its fixtures, fittings and furnishings. A gorgeous orange glow is emitted from the porcelain cylinders, contributing to a comfortable environment. And whether they're off or on, these Forest Lights flaunt their rough arboreal textures with shadow and shading, creating organic aesthetic intrigue to spruce up any old space.
