Option #1- For this look, I took pillow piping and removed the cotton cording inside. Then I replaced that with the lamp cord. By draping the cord over a decorative knob, I was able to make it look artful rather than an after thought.
Option #2- You've seen me do it time and time again. Weaving lighting wire in with rustic rope is super easy and inexpensive, but it makes all the difference!
Option #3- And what about this idea to add a little metallic pop in your space. Cut a piece of copper tubing to size and simply slide it over your wire. Courtland Bascon did that on Design Star last year and the judges loved the look.
Option #4- For a more crafty "Design Sponge" look, simply braid yarn and the light cord together. FYI- The thinner your yarn, the longer it takes! But the end result is just lovely!
Option #5- This option is less about concealing your cord and more about celebrating it. Instead of trying to hide the obvious, why not create cool artistic loops and swirls that make a statement? I LOVE this idea that I found in Michael Moeller's portfolio file.
