How To: Make Your Own Wire Orb Light!

created at: 09/25/2011

The Random Light by Moooi has inspired many a DIY variation (including this cool hemp version), but this is the first time I've seen the aesthetic translated into wire--and I love it!  It's a perfect statement piece for just about any style interior from contemporary to farmhouse, eclectic to modern.  Of course, the best part is you can make it yourself!  

There's no denying that this oversized orb will make a big impact in any space, but its lacy construction is airy enough not to overpower the room (which is one of the things I love about it).  This faux bronze version, created by Orlando Soria for HGTV's Secrets From a Stylist, measures about three feet across but you can make yours whatever size and color your heart desires!  Orlando shares detailed instructions and drawings for creating your own over on his blog Homme Maker, so go check it out!

So, what do you think Curbliers?  Does this oversized orb get your vote?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

I love it! I think it adds character to the room. 

You can also spry paint the wires to make it colorful.

Bottom line - my favorite!
