Part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, these sculptural pendant lamps are designed by George Nelson. Instant icons of mid-century modernism when introduced in 1947, they are constructed of a steel wire frame and covered with translucent plastic, emitting a soft, even light.

    How do you clean these lights. Could they be dry cleaned?

    1 answer



      In most settings, the Nelson lamps can be cleaned with a feather duster or a soft cloth. For deeper cleaning, we recommend cleaning them with a mild soap solution and a soft cloth. To remove the soap, wipe with a clean, damp cloth and dry with a soft rag. Stronger solutions, like a glass cleaner containing ammonia, could discolor or damage the plastic coating. We do not recommend dry cleaning.

    Is the fixture in the room view photo from which the three pendant lights are hung also available through Room & Board?

    Do you think 2 of these pendants would fit over a kitchen island that is 70" long and 36" wide? I am asking from a design point of view rather than a functionality standpoint. I have the saucer pendant in the dining room and these would be a good complement, but I'm not sure if they're meant to be used in this way.

      Two pendants over a 70" island would be great; almost required for that length so you don't get a single bright spot in the middle. We don't sell islands so I can't reference any images for you but you'll see pendants in twos and threes magazine images of kitchens.
