IKEA Desk Lamps Turned Upside Down to Make Chandelier

by Lambert Varias

IKEA Hacker reader Jason is one very creative fellow who recently had one of those so simple it’s brilliant ideas: a chandelier is just a bunch of lamps hanging on the ceiling, so why not put a bunch of desk lamps together to make a chandelier?

Jason used three IKEA Tertial lamps, which are IKEA’s cheapest desk lamps at $9 (USD) a pop. He then made a hollow base out of plywood to house the electrical wiring, and used a bicycle wheel spoke to secure the lamps to the base.

Each of the arms can be moved independently, and the whole setup is attached to a dimmer. The end result? A cheap, yet versatile and classy chandelier. Awesome hack Jason. Now I’d like to see you make a desk fan out of a ceiling fan.
