Give Your Ceiling A Boost With These Gaze-Worthy Pendant Lamps

Now available in a slew of new colors, Verner Panton's distinctive pendant lamps have a simple yet eye-catching design that would brighten up just about any kitchen.

The celebrated Danish designer (best-known for his namesake Panton chair), created the lamps over a half-century ago, and both hanging styles, the bulbous Topan and the outer-rimmed Flowerpot, are enduring proof of iconic forms standing the test of time.

Given the jazzy selection of hues, all it really takes is one — try the cobalt blue — to liven up your kitchen or dining room, but here's a styling tip: hang several at varying lengths for a more design-forward decor.

Prices start at $350 on
