LampGustaf: Stitch Light

Would you like to see a fantastic new concept that combines a pendant light with the work of your own hands? LampGustaf in Sweden recently launched the Stitch pendant and it’s the best… leave it to the Swedish to combine craft with function and do it without one ounce of kitsch. The idea behind Stitch is that you can make your own design by hand, so it’s a little bit DIY rolled into a fantastic pendant light. You can watch a video of a few people making their own design here on YouTube to get a better idea on how this works. LampGustaf will soon launch a site of inspiration for Stitch with downloadable embroidery designs and the ability to upload customer photos and more.

LampGustaf: Stitch Light

In addition to the crafty modern Stitch light, LampGustaf carries a large selection of lighting that ranges from traditional to contemporary, mid century to elegant, they have a myriad of stunning floor, table and pendant lights to choose from. The Stitch is my favorite though, so original and fun!

A special thanks to reader Helena from Room And Serve who first told me about this darling light yesterday. Thanks, Helena!

    excellent! I’ve loved Industreal’s cross-stitch bowl for years, but one is limited as to what you can put in a bowl that’s fuzzy. This, on the other hand…

    I can’t believe i was checking on their site and marking them for my post just a moment before i come here for my daily read and see they are here. But it’s not just that. It is about a year now i had this idea not with this kind of material of course but to order a pendant like this with fabrik to replace my big Ikea pendant and stitch it also. I need the 60cm. diameter. The moment i saw them i was banged! Then i come here and i see them again. Banged again. It is very good. Now i have to do it immidiatelly. That’s why the right thing is to do what you thought and not loose time. grrr!

    Leave it to the Swedes…it’s the land of practicality. When I go home and stay at the airport hotel in Stockholm I’m always stunned how many super imaginative, practical things and functions are packed in to one tiny hotel room.

    This is a great idea!
    The sweedish really know how to do it! I wonder all the things I could do with this..

    Maybe use something else than yarn? For one night only, it would be lovely to use thin flowers and stick them through the holes! or let yarn hand down like frills, or even leather ones.. :) So many possibilities!

    just in case, anyone is interested;

    cross stitching can be done on any surface if you purchase waste canvas from a craft store. loosely stitch the waste canvas onto any fabric. cross stitch to your heart’s content, and lastly, remove the waste canvas thread by thread and you’re left with only your embroidery on the fabric or surface of your choosing.
