Cool Idea: Embroidered Metal Lampshades

When I was swinging through the San Francisco Anthropologie store recently, I was stopped in my tracks by these metal pendant lamps.

We all know that objects make a bigger impression when they're arranged in multiples (and three is really a magic number when it comes to arranging), but the multiple lamps weren't what wowed me. It's the impressive embroidery on the metal shades! I'm not sure how they punctured the holes into these — perhaps with a tiny drill bit — but the overall effect is stunning and unexpected.

I love the way the light shines through the holes in the lamp. Are you a fan?
