Hanging lights always point downward whereas candles and chandeliers point upwards. This upward position creates a better ambient lighting condition and looks great for nice bulbs. This Balance Light does exactly that. It points upwards and is balanced by a nice little concrete counter weight. You might even say that this is a one-bulb mini chandelier. All this in a great display box, so also great as a present. The base of this lamp is a lasercut piece of matte black acrylic. The edison bulb looks great in this design. A fabric cord and a nice matte black metal ceiling plate give this lamp the high quality look it deserves.
