According to my parents, my first word was “light.” Well, technically it was ”dight,” but I pointed up to the ceiling light as I said it, so I think I officially have a long history as a lighting fan. We’re still hunting down the perfect office light (will the searching ever end? argh!), but these pieces at Lamps Plus caught my eye yesterday afternoon. While I don’t do a lot of mirrored furniture in my own home, I always love that look in other people’s spaces. And the sweet little chandelier below ($450) would be a fun way to bring that look into your home. But for me, the Tetra Collection light ($898) above has the most promise. I really really hate the color of the metal support rods above the main shade unit, but I think if you spray painted them black, copper or brass, it would totally transform the light into something modern and cool.
If you’re looking for something simpler, there is also a nice little range of smaller pendants ($160–$210 each) made of mercury glass that would look great in a cluster or in a row above a kitchen bar or elsewhere. That little fluted pendant ($480) next to the mirrored chandelier is on the pricier side, but I love the shape. Click here to check out more contemporary lighting options online. xo, grace
