Hunting for a New Lighting Fixture

The dining room is one of the spaces I’ve neglected in our home and is in need of a little attention.  It’s a small little space that is open to the living room.  Since moving in, all we’ve done is bring in the clear chairs we had from our previous home, a white tulip table, and white curtains. The owners of the home (we’re renters) left their chandelier and we’ve left it up because, well, it’s functional. It’s not really our style though and I’ve been itching to change it out.

I’ve been keeping an eye out for light fixtures that I like (and aren’t ridiculously expensive). Below is a round-up of what I’ve found so far.  Some of them aren’t right for the space but thought they were worth sharing here, for any of you out there who may also be on the hunt for the right light fixture.

1- Five Arm Chandelier, 2- Marmont Pendant, 3- Brass Pendant, 4- Modern Pendant Light, 5- Brass and Glass Globe Pendant

#1 is beautiful but it’s probably a bit too fancy for our home. #2 has a fun vibe to it, though I’m not sure if it would emit sufficient light. #3 is a strong contender – I love it’s simple elegance. #4 is clean, simple and my husband’s favorite. There’s also this one, which is similar and I like.  #5 is really cool and I love that it’s handmade by a fellow small business owner.  It’s also the most budget friendly. Given the current chairs we have though, bringing this in would probably be too many clear elements in the space. Perhaps if I got new chairs… (haha I wish! …not in the budget right now)

If you happen to come across a light fixture you think I’d like and is reasonably priced, feel free to send it my way. I’m open to options.

    Number 1 (though definitely a steep price tag) and number 5 are my favourites! That being said, I think you and your hubby’s favourites would work too. Maybe less of a dramatic statement, but I think they would flow well in the space.

    I love number 3, it’s so elegant and simple! If you change your mind down the road it’s definitely flexible for different design schemes. Plus it’s a great compromise for your husband’s favorite.
