Add a touch of industrial style by knotting two or more rope cords together in a box knot style, and attach metal hooks to hang each rope from the ceiling. Screw in the bulbs, and plug the cords for lighting that suits studios, lofts and small spaces.
Accent a rustic style by hanging a pendant lamp on a wooden pole with a stand or a tree branch set in a concrete mold. This style suits a living room or a dining room. For a shabby-chic style, build a grid out of copper piping, and drape simple swag lamps over it. It adds a classic effect similar to chandelier lighting.
