The Friday Five :: Rustic Pendants

In the past several years, there has been a distinct trend toward rustic & reclaimed decor. The warm materials and worn textures bring to mind homes with history and provenance. While clearly there's nothing wrong with shiny and new, there is a certain charm and comfort that comes with furnishings that appear aged and hand-crafted. We're seeing the look carried over from found trestle tables and decorative objects into some of the most beautiful accents. Here, I'm highlighting five of my favorite rustic pendants at the moment.

Industrial

From Currey & Co, this pendant has an industrial feel with a weathered gray wood finish and metal stem and canopy in aged iron. At 23" round, this would be perfect over a medium size dining table or even paired up over a large island as oversized pendants - a look that is very in right now. {PS - mini-pendants are a thing of the past...let's update those babies!}

Lantern

A very versatile shape, this lantern-style pendant has simple lines with just enough detail to make it interesting but not overdone. The weathered wood finish is a blend of taupes & creams, making it a nice complement to almost any decor. The 16" square size is nice for a small foyer or over a breakfast table, but also works well over an island. For a 6' island, I'd recommend two.

Unique Shape

I'm always on the hunt for a unique shape and the Beesthorpe fits the bill. A play on the classic beehive, this fixture is hand finished in a textural bronze and accented with chestnut wood bindings. While it has a distinctly rustic feel, the warm glow of the metal elevates this light in a lovely way. Because of its height, I see this in a foyer or breakfast room and think it's stunning as a single.

Orb

A twist on the orb chandelier we're seeing so much of these days, this version is a little weightier. With an elegant weathered pewter finish on the iron, the 6-light fixture is accented with a center band of beautiful warm wood. This pendant can stand it's ground as a single and make quite a statement doing so.

Wallet-Friendly

Oh World Market, how I do love thee...let me count the ways! In this case, about $130, which takes this week's wallet-friendly prize. I'm digging this pendant for many reasons: the warm tone of the mango wood is a perfect medium grayish-brown and the metal is a nice black matte - just right when you don't want to go too rustic. The size is 12" square, meaning it works well in multiples as island pendants.

The Friday Five :: Currently Loving Gold-tone Chandeliers

These 5 gorgeous gold-tone chandeliers caught my eye this week. Starting at just $99, these picks span a wide range of styles & sizes but all are guaranteed to up your dining room game!

This is seriously one of my favorites and is on my "2018 Project Vision Board" (more about that in a future post!). For me, the combination of graceful arms topped with modern cylinders is perfection. It's proportions are just right for most dining room tables (usually 42" wide) and would work well in a traditional or contemporary space.

While sputnik style fixtures are widely adored, this version takes the style quotient up a notch with the spike detail, giving this chandy a bit of an edge. I also love the slim bulbs extending from the arms, giving the light an extra special sparkle.

I just found this updated drum pendant today and saved it to my faves right away! From the talented designers at Young House Love, this pendant is available in seven colors, but the gold definitely grabbed me. At 18" diameter, this would be perfect in a breakfast nook or even paired up over a kitchen island as oversized pendants.

Okay, confession time: I want this for myself! Those super slim arms have the most graceful lines and I adore the clear glass globes. The 32" diameter works well in a dining space, but I can also see this in a foyer.

Lantern fixtures are everywhere right now and for good reason. They are a modern take on a classic shape and even in larger sizes, the openness help keep spaces feeling airy & light. This particular version from Wisteria is a smaller size - just 14" - making it just right for kitchen islands.
