gorgeous sensuality of niche modern

Jeremy Pyles of Niche Modern says: “Do what you love and the rest will follow…” This stunning line of glass pendants came into being in 2003, when Jeremy and his wife and business partner Mary Welch needed to fill the storefront window of their furniture shop with pendant lamps.

Not finding any lighting that struck a chord, Jeremy set out on a quest from Soho to Chinatown, gathering parts to create their own fixtures. Serendipitously running into a glassblower on the street, and doing a quick sketch right there and then, the very first pendant was created. Happy accidents are the best.
