New Classics: the Coral Pendant Light of David Trubridge

The complex construction of Down Under coral reefs inspired this spherical pendant light. Produced by New Zealander David Trubridge, the Coral Pendant begins with the natural kinds of coral, gives them a more streamlined geometric shape and reassembles them in a spherical lamp. Concern for the environment also influenced Trubridge’s layout; the light fixture is made of bamboo plywood that’s sustainably forested, and it is flat packed to decrease the carbon footprint of shipping.

The light is a terrific pick for transitional, contemporary and contemporary rooms. See how well it mingles with cowhide, networks with stripes, flirts with Ikea throw cushions and loosens up preppy plaids.

Because the light is flat packed, you will have to do a little bit of work to put it together once it arrives. The good thing is, there is an easy-to-follow video that teaches you how to build it, available online.


David Trubridge Coral Pendant, Aqua – $360

If you’d like to bring some bright yet subtle color, the pendant can be obtained with the interior paint rendered in cheerful hues like aqua, orange, lime, yellow, salmon and green (shown here).

While a single orb is certainly sufficient to stand by itself, two seem striking together, especially when they’re different sizes. The ring is available in five sizes: 15 1/2, 23 1/2, 31 1/2, 39 1/2 and a whopping 63 inches in diameter.

Hint: You can highlight a room-dividing component with lighting.These pendants have been hung directly over the bookshelves that separate the stairs from the main living area.

The Coral Pendant looks excellent from a large window; its own form is architectural and organic, so it ties into the buildings and trees in the space.


David Trubridge Coral Pendant, Natural – $290

My favourite aspect of this pendant is the honeycomb of shadows it casts all around a space.

You needn’t limit use of the ring into a living room or above a dining table; it looks fantastic in a bedroom, out of a nursery into a master suite.

Hint: Remember that you don’t have to hang a pendant light at the middle of a space. It is possible to bring an otherwise dull corner to life using a pendant light or two, because you see here.
