There is something intrinsically appealing about the texture, versatility, strength and simplicity of a length of rope. Rope as a raw material is full of possibilities; it can be woven, knotted, braided and coiled into interesting shapes, and it can also be turned into amazing pieces of furniture, lighting and jewellery. With the nautical and coastal trends still in full swing it is likely we will be seeing even more rope inspired design in the months to come.
This rope light by Toronto etsy seller Atelier 688, is all kinds of wonderful. The heavy duty scale of the rope gives this piece so much substance, and the texture is incredible. I think a lighting fixture this bold would be amazing in a loft space with sky-high ceilings.
