I Spy: Chinese Lanterns
Long before New York became, well, a very expensive place to live, lofts were simple affairs, lightly converted to accommodate living, without ever piling on the luxury. This raw space harkens back to those days, when a lack of overhead lighting could be solved by hanging large Chinese lanterns like the ones seen above. If you’re having similar lighting difficulties, consider this a possible solution.
