Gift pick No. 31: Brendan Ravenhill Hood light

Echo Park designer Brendan Ravenhill is known for composing elegant, understated lighting from simple materials such as wood, brass and cloth cord. Our pick for our Handmade Holidays countdown to Christmas: Ravenhill's delicate handmade Hood sconce, which can be installed as a single light or in multiples (on either side of the bed, perhaps?).

The sconce consists of a white oak frame and a matte white polyethylene shade held in place with nylon nuts and bolts. Pull the brass-capped cord, turn the light aglow and settle in with a good book.

The sconce is about a foot tall. It sells for $215 on Ravenhill's website. You can see it in person at the Dec. 7 Remodelista Market at Big Daddy's Antiques.
