At A Glance: Both an overhead spotlight and an artful table lamp, the Bel Occhio lamp manages to do two tasks well. Its spherical acrylic shell sits in a plastic base on your table, allowing for free adjustment of the cylindrical light canister to provide ambient lighting. When hanging, it provides enough of an accent to illuminate a small area - use two or three of this attractive pendant lamp over a counter, bar, or kitchen work area.
What's To Like: We love the clean, yet visually interesting design of the Bel Occhio pendant lamp. Its ability to either hang or sit on a surface is a major benefit as well, especially in this era of doing more with less.
What's Not To Like: You can find cheaper lamps of this sort. Pablo Designs knows they've created a quality pendant, and they've priced it accordingly. Truthfully, you'll have trouble finding one of this quality for much cheaper.
The Bottom Line: Despite its price tag, the Bel Occhio Lamp is a smart choice for ambient or spot lighting, due to its versatility. Hang it up, bring it down, according to what you need to illuminate.
