Angelic and elegant, the Kugel K Light ($4700) doesn't have a heavenly price, but its simple feathered body (also available in white) is fascinating. German designer Heike Buchfelder made this fanciful fixture under the supervision of his fine feather specialty company, Pluma Cubic. The plume-puff effect of combining goose quill feathers, cotton chintz, and a brushed stainless steel ceiling canopy as hanging hardware looks harmonious and successfully emphasizes the organic structure of the feather itself. It's design based on material.
