In honor of Earth Day, bring a Surya Globe from COOPA-ROCA into your home, and shed some light on the women in Rocinha, who create these intricate works of art, using traditional Brazilian craft techniques.
Each of these beautiful lighting fixtures is made from a delicate web of crochet that covers an illuminated opaque sphere. Not only will it enhance your environment, but it will also enhance the environment of these women, who work from home on these designs in order to care for their children. Hang it from your ceiling and watch as the light plays across the room, creating an atmosphere that is simply magical. $325 at www.ecostasy.com. Be sure to check out the equally beautiful Kali Globe too ($295/not shown).
