iKhaya Luigi pendant light

A small addition can easily transform a room from ordinary to outstanding and nothing does this better than a hanging pendant light. These unusual plastic pendant lights caught our eye at iKhaya where they are presiding in rows, lighting up the other wonderful wares on offer. Rhenda and Nev Allen, owners of iKhaya, have become well known for their creative ideas for repurposing old things, but these lights are incredible even for them. ‘We made them ourselves using old Italian buoys,’ Rhenda explains. ‘We call it the Luigi Light and they come in yellow, orange and white. A bit of affordable Italian design!’ The pendants are eye-catching when they are off during the day but really come into their own when they are switched on at night, thanks to the lovely gentle glow they cast. A single Luigi Light looks just as effective as a row and they are a good option for an unusual touch in a contemporary or masculine space. We love the fact that the Luigi Light has an interesting story behind it for when guests comment, too. The Luigi Light sells for R699 at iKhaya, 435 Windermere Road, Morningside.
