using pipe fittings to make clever lighting designs
DIY Industrial Desk Lamp
Going Industrial is easy, just a quick trip to the plumbing aisle at your local hardware store.  The best way to go about shopping for pipe parts at the hardware store is just spread out, start screwing pieces together and experiment.  This project was for an old beat up wood top, desk.  We figured attaching the base flange directly into the desk would be no big deal.  If you don't want to fasten anything directly onto your surface, making legs is also quite easy by adding a few more tees and elbows at the bottom. 
For the Color Cord Company components, we used lengths of yellow and gray DIY pendant cord, plug ends, barrel cord grips, basic sockets, and finished it off with our gray metal socket covers.  The whole project was fast and easy and if we ever get sick of it, it would be super easy to change the dimensions with different plumbing parts or switch out the color cords.  We've been accumulating plumbing parts here at Color Cord HQ, we plan to get more elaborate for future projects.  This is obviously a very simplistic version of industrial lighting, we've seen some amazing stuff out there using pipe, we'd love to see what you're doing for your lighting projects.  Post your projects on our Facebook page, tweet us or just send us an old fashion email.
