Pendant Lights for the Dining Room

You guys, our dining room needs a new light situation bad. There is a chandelier fixture spot ready to have something wired in to it and I’ve been looking around for the perfect addition to the room. I found it. However, there is a slight budget conflict. A girl can dream about $350 light fixtures right?

Sigh. It’s from Ballard Designs and it looks awesome.

Inspired by this via Young House Love:

I also found these options that a little more budget friendly. What do you guys think?

Here is a photo of our dining room.

What do you think? Have you seen any other cool fixtures that you think would look good?

  2. Hi Hannah! I am a good friend of Rory’s and an interior designer. Your dining room and table probably need a larger pendant then the pictures you posted. I would suggest a cluster of 3 pendants. The light pendants you picked out are very architectural so you are pretty much just paying for the form. Check out my facebook and look for the wire lamp. You can just strip down thrift store lamp shades and hang them from a light kit. Maybe Rory could hardwire them for ya. It looks like you have some electrical access in the ceiling that is just covered up by a plastic plate. Love your blog and let me know if you guys are ever in the CDA, we would love to see ya!
