If I had my way though, I would get an ultra modern light fixture, but they're a little too expensive for the time being. So the update will have to do for now. This is what I have my eye on.
LEFT: Modernica, Lighting RIGHT: West Elm, Organic Blown Glass Pendant
LEFT: West Elm, Cluster Glass Pendant | RIGHT: Mjolk, Tomiyama Koichi
LEFT: Dylan Design Company, 5 Chunk Modern Pendant Chandelier | RIGHT: CB2, Noir Pendant
The lamp from Dylan Design Company, on the left, is by FAR my favorite, and I want it SO much, but it's a dream. It's $950 and out of my price range. I love the shape of the lamp from CB2 but I wonder how much light it will give off since the shade is black.
The chandeliers above aren't for sale as far as I can tell, but I LOVE them. The balloon lights by CoursCalogero, on the left, have a chain on the bottom that you pull to turn them on. It doesn't get any more whimsical than that!
The chandelier on the right, by Pani Jurek, is made out of test tubes in a circular plywood band. Seems pretty DIY-able, except I don't know where to find a plywood band. I suppose you can make one yourself with the right tools. I love the idea of changing the colored water whenever you feel like a change. I want one!
