Looks for Less

Looks For Less: Chandeliers and Pendant Lights

And we’re back for part 2 of our lighting edition.  Let’s be real, how much time do you spend looking up at your ceiling?  You probably think you spend plenty of time but let me tell you something – if this is what you’re looking at when you look up, you’re not spending enough time elevating your eyeballs:

Boob lights.  Seriously people, this is a thing.  And not just a thing, but the thing in most builder grade homes until the not so distant past. But, alas, don’t fret!  You don’t have to live with these things staring you in the face (“up here, my eyes are up here!”).

Thankfully, today there is a plethora of incredible lighting options for your lonely and forgotten ceiling, and most of them no longer resemble any type of human anatomy!

How many of you have spent an afternoon wandering through World Market?  Is it just me, or do you feel like you could just move in and make yourself at home.  Sure, take a nap on the wonderfully outfitted bed in the back, mosey on over to the market section for a snack, hit up the naturally scented soap isle when the manger starts to follow you around wondering who you are and why you look like you haven’t showered in three days (because let’s face it, you haven’t).

Anywho…their lighting is amazing.  I don’t mean ‘last-piece-of-chocolate-cake-and-no-one-else-has-noticed-yet’ amazing.  I mean ‘take-my-money-as-fast-as-possible-and-I’ll-throw-in-my-first-born-while-I’m-at-it’ amazing.  Not really on the first born, but pretty close. Anyway, if you’re looking for a great designer knock-off, you seriously have your pick of about a million.  Take a look at these beauties:

West Elm – Droplet Glass Chandelier $449   World Market – Bubble Orb Chandelier $199.99

West Elm – Acrylic Framework Chandelier $499    World Market – Antique Gold Modular 8 Bulb Chandelier $249.99

Potter Barn – Explosion Chandelier $639           World Market – Brass Starburst Collin Chandelier $249.99

Pottery Barn – Net Globe Pendant $299    World Market – Globe Farmhouse Chandelier $149.99

Potter Barn – Armonk Chandelier $399         World Market – Rustic Wire Chandelier $169.99

Potter Barn – Capiz Pendant $199                    World Market – Capiz Lotus Pendant Shade $69.99

Don’t you just love the gold starburst chandelier?  I mean seriously, put that one over your dining table and it will be like a celebration with fireworks over every meal.  I might just try that; it might make dinner seem a little more exciting after I announce left-overs on the third night that week!
