Trend Report: Rope Lighting Installations

Nautical-inspired lighting may be perennial in the design sphere, but lately designers (and DIYers) seem to be employing hardware store variety rope in a fresh way. This new trend is more in touch with heavy duty rope's industrial applications than its typical nautical association. I especially like the way these fixtures read as installations, but still play a functional role as light sources. Utilitarian in aesthetic and in the true sense of the word.
