These delicate opaque pendant lights beckon back the pastel past with subtle touches of frost, bubble-gum and butter.

Designed by Dutch team, Scholten & Baijings for Established & Sons, the glass bulbs are hand-blown into swollen pear shapes then coloured in graduating shades using a spray-paint technique. The gentle application of colour gives a warm glow, even when the light is off.
