A little while back I ordered some brass string lights from an online store called Onefortythree. This site has a number of very cool light fixtures, furniture and home accessories all designed and made by the very talented Logan Hendrickson. I stumbled across his site one day and was excited by his designs and then when I saw that he actually delivered to South Africa, I literally fist punched the air like a star-struck teenager in the 90’s.
Shane and I have been dying to have a festive looking string light set-up in our dinning room, but no one could provide us with anything but ugly black plastic light fixtures that get pinned onto thick black wire. There was no other solution, that was until I found these brass string lights, which also come in wood and a few new bright colours.
So I ordered two sets and they came in relatively good time and I didn’t land up paying too much extra at the post office for them, a few hundred rand more. But now Shane and I are so happy with what we have going on in our dining room. The only down side with this specific item that we ordered is that they have to be plugged into a converter and we can’t get the globes they use here, but where there is a will, there is a way. This online globe store ships stuff to SA and they stock them, so we’re sorted. Yippeee. I don’t think the globe issue will be a problem with all of them, but check it out before you order.
I have included a bunch of Onefortythree’s light designs in this post so you can have a drool and maybe a little shop. I’m having to stop myself from putting in another order.
