Noteworthy Products from ILEX
The ILEX Gala Pendant was designed by Michael Graves to make a modern, architectural statement. Its opulent form consists of 10 Shiny Opal Glass diffusers that circle underneath a metallic halo that then reaches up to small, stepped canopy. Its 10 independent light sources are both laterally diffused for a warm, ambient glow, and longitudinally open (at the base) for a more direct lighting experience.
