As a follow up from the blog “Pendant Lighting Choices” published 10/26/2016, this blog will walk you thru how the home owners narrowed down their choices.
So far, the top two are the “honey” glass (Pendant 19), which is fairly neutral and the one that has a satin nickel finish with the deep burgundy colors (Pendant 5). The honey glass (Pendant 19) looks nice on or off. The home owners didn’t see the burgundy one (Pendant 5) “live”.
Here is the low down on both options:
1) Honey pendant: I liked it but it is safe, and let’s the eye see the granite which should be the main attraction.
2) Wild pendant: Love it, but my second reaction is will it work against the granite?
The goal here was to not distract from the granite, but to highlight it or draw your attention to the granite.
The pendants are approximately $150 each so not exactly cheap and the homeowners needed 3 pendant lights. The decision here was to order both sets to see the lights ‘live’ with the granite to make the final decision.
You know what’s funny…when the lights arrived, none of us liked the pendants that were ordered with the granite. We ended up going shopping, and found some pendant lights that had burgundy veining that was not too overpowering with a bronze finish. The best thing about it was that they looked perfect with the granite and were much cheaper too – $30 for each pendant!
