Lighting is so personal, especially with decorative pendants and chandeliers.
They're like jewelry for your home.
In our kitchen, I knew all along that I would want to replace the three glass pendants when we bought the house.
But with what?
I like to think of our home like a tight ship, even somewhat nautical.
I envisioned something in brass, but finding a fixture that isn't too large was a challenge.
If there were only two pendants, I could go large, but with three, they had to be no more than ten inches wide.
After weeks of searching online, I found this brass fixture called "Massena" from Hudson Valley Lighting.
It was what I had in mind all along!
Here they are newly installed.
I love how they add that nautical feel to the kitchen I was going for.
Up close you can see how there is a white porcelain element in the neck of the fixture, which casts refracted light on the ceiling at night.
These pendants hang with a down rod made of brass.
The fixture comes with many lengths, so you get to put together the length that works for you.
A little higher than the previous lights, but because they have much more presence, I think a little higher is ok.
At nine and a half inches wide, they are perfect!
I'm loving the new look!
Isn't it funny how such a small change can make a huge difference?
