Just when you thought your grandmother’s fancy glass candy dishes would never make a comeback in the world of modern design, Jay Watson scrounged them up at the local flea market.
Watson’s new lighting line, Just Desserts, deftly inverts these pressed glass bowls and makes contemporary ceiling pendants of them. Each bouquet of fixtures—in clear or vintage shades like bottle green, amber, lemon yellow, and robin’s egg blue—is retrofitted with single 75,000-hour white LEDs (2700K, 95CRI).
The sandy wooden breaks and sleek aluminum columns create a decidedly un-old-fashioned silhouette. Since all of the dishes are sourced from secondhand shops and flea markets, Just Desserts fixtures are made to order and completely unique. We think that’s pretty sweet.
