Just thought Id chime in with my discovery! I also really love the look of these lanterns and have searched high and low for them. I have not specifically sourced these lights, but what I have found is that they are 'capiz shell' lights. As of this moment, I have seen this type of light available for purchase at Restoration Hardware in four sizes (36" is the largest) and at Jonathan Adler in two sizes (32" is the largest). :)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Use patterns to emphasize scale: The luxury of large rooms is their ability to absorb pattern and color. Here, Gambrel mixes just the right amount of patterned and solid pieces to create a harmonious yet interesting composition. The black and white patterned drapes draw the eye upward to the dramatic vaulted ceiling.Tip: The vaulted ceiling was not an original feature of this room. To get the effect he wanted, he opened up the lowered ceiling, painted it with semi-reflective paint and installed the softly luminous mother-of-pearl lanterns.
Nothing fills space like a grand piano! In addition to being long and narrow, this living room also has a high ceiling. The hanging lights do a nice job of lowering the ceiling's perceived height, so the space doesn't feel so daunting.

NARROW ROOM A free-form sectional is a contemporary variation of back-to-back sofas. One side faces an intimate seating area; the other embrances a more casual space furnished with ottomans that can double as seating. Nothing fills sapce like a grand paino!
