DIY Knotted Lamp Cord

Design*Sponge posted this simple pendant lamp project, and I think it’s right on trend with all the rope accents we’ve been seeing lately. Stylist Raina Kattelson hung this industrial pendant in her newly renovated kitchen.

It’s simply made by knotting sisal rope over and over, resulting in a casual, nautical look that’s perfect for a cottage or bistro kitchen. I love how Raina paired the raw rope with an industrial pendant, but you can try it with any style of shade, from an inexpensive schoolhouse shade to two small pendants on either side of a bed.
