Renovations don’t have to be complicated. Sometimes the simplest way to take a space from sparse to sparkling is to change up the lighting. This Turkish metal globe pendant ($450) from Denver’s Lolo Rugs and Gifts can alter the entire feel of a room with the mesmerizing patterns it projects. These brass spheres are sourced straight from Turkey, where they’re handmade by designers who use hammers to pierce lacelike patterns into the metal. “The trend is moving toward a vintage yet modern look for lights,” says Lolo’s vice president, Alya Gennaro. “Customers put them in stairwells, and the light reflects off the walls in 360-degree views.” Home improvement never shone so bright.
