At first glance, the Tweetie Pendant Lamp will look purely decorative. It takes on the form of a golden bird cage complete with a gold bird inside. Although no Tweety Bird of Looney Tunes, these silent chirpers do bring a bit of playful whimsy into the home. Of course, in a much more chic way than any cartoon character ever could.

Designed by Jake Phipps in collaboration with BOSA for manufacturer CASAMANIA, the Tweetie Pendant Lamp is inspired by the tradition of canaries in homes from ancient Egyptian and Roman civilizations to Victorian courts. It is a symbolic figure of good manners. Made out of metal rod painted either black or coated in 24 karat gold, the Tweetie Pendant Lamp's light source is placed at the base.
