You guys were so helpful with the kitchen lighting options, and I’m crossing my fingers that you’ll have the answer to all my dining room lighting needs as well! :) (BTW, I’m 99% sure that I’m going with Alexis’ recommendation – the Tilt Cone Sconce. I’m obsessed!)
Here’s my dilemma – I had my heart set on a certain chandelier for the dining room. It was perfect – modern, a bit industrial yet still refined, unique…I could go on and on. The problem? That sucker is backordered until late January. Womp womp. (If we’re still working on this flip in late January please send me prayers.)
So. Here are the options I’m currently considering. Could you pretty please let me know what you think?
- Tangled Chandelier – Persimmon – $285. I love it. It’s cool and unique, but maybe TOO unique? It comes in green or yellow as well, but I like the red the best. But red would probably freak people out. Brass and a blackened brass are options as well, for an extra $100, but if I go that route shouldn’t I just go for #11 instead and save some cash?
- Varaluz Wright Stuff 3-Light Black Pendant – $399. Expensive. Too crazy? It’s a little aggressive-looking, somehow.
- Clive Chandelier – $379. O.M.G. So this is the chandelier that I had my heart set on. $&*(@! I love it! I used it in my mood boards here and here! Weep. Any suggestions for a similar fixture?
- Two-Tone Pendant Lamp – $65 each pendant. So how cool would it be to do a cluster of these in different colors? Answer – so cool. But again, maybe too weird for a flip.
- Bentwood Pendant – $189 each. This seems like a very viable option, but it just has a single bulb.
- Industrial Chandelier – $249. I like this one a lot, but for all you bare-bulb-haters out there, would it singe your eyeballs?
- Capiz Tiered Chandelier – $379. Yes. This one could be excellent. You know how I love a capiz chandelier. ;)
- Mobile Chandelier – $249. So I’m thinking this one might be the new frontrunner. It’s pretty awesome, right?!?
- Liberty Pendant – $229. Pretty, but you can’t avoid that brass. I’m digging brass these days, but we’ve now learned that not everyone has jumped on that bandwagon!
- Diamond Kiss Pendant – $179. Kind of like #2, but less aggressive. The cone shade softens it somehow.
- Radial Chandelier – $299. This one is a good option, but I wonder if it looks a little too industrial? That ring is flattened black metal, which seems pretty utilitarian.
- Peel Pendant Lamp – $199. Kind of like #5 but with some sassy orange highlights peeking through. Just one bulb.
- Warehouse Tiffany’s Jackstone Chandelier – $292.99. This one is an obvious choice – but does it take the house too midcentury? I don’t have a problem with it, and I think it would work with the overall design…
- Young House Love Geometric Diamond Lantern – $99. Pretty, but not enough oomph to hold the dining space, I don’t think.
- Oversized Cone Paper Shade Pendant – $269. I like this one (I like the one with the gold interior even better!), but I’m not sure it goes with the vibe we’re going for.
- Multi Glass Orb Chandelier – $358. Love it. Maybe this is the winner?
- Be Squared Modern Chandelier – $279. Really cool, but it has some brass – would buyers run screaming?
- Uttermost Paxton 1 Light Pendant – $206.80. A cheaper version of #2, but with only one bulb. What is with chandeliers with only one bulb?!? Do people eat in the dark?
So, in a nutshell, since I can’t have Clive I’m leaning towards #1, #7, #8, #13 or #16. Do you have a favorite? Or maybe an entirely different option? Help a girl out!!
