Standing to hanging lamp

Materials: KULLA standing lamp, iron wire

Description: This weekend I sold my antique chandelier, so I was chasing the city to find a new hanging lamp. All kinds and sorts I have considered; the €1428 Hexagonal chandelier designed by Jules Wabbes, €70 vintage retro lamp on the Dutch Ebay, even a €139 industrial imitation came along.

I have no idea how it happened, but as soon the antique chandelier left our house, I immediately start taking apart this standing IKEA lamp. I unscrewed the Kulla standard. Placed the shade-holder upside down to the fitting. I drilled a whole in the standard and placed and Iron wire between the standard and the ceiling. That’s about it.

I must admit that I was kind of proud to see the whole thing hanging.

    I’m confused.. don’t they sell this without the hack. IE. the shade and the electrical piece that would be wired to where the chandelier was? Even if the hack was worth the price…the look isn’t worth being cheap.

    That’s not even a hack and on top of it it is an electical tape hack job of the new fixture wire onto the exposed wire of the olf fixture …

    Thumbs down …
