Pendant light

debster007July 12, 2014
I'm looking for a pendant light to hang over the table. I love the simplicity and contemporary look of the flos smithfield shown in the pictures attached but not sure if I need something with more contrast. I'd love some opinions. Considered the foscarini caboche too.

Do you have a wood table under the table cloth. Otherwise, it's a lot of white with the pendant you like. Can you post another photo taken from the other side (showing what I presume is the kitchen?).

Thanks Rebecca. The table is white with an aluminium centre piece (occa from bo concept) I was worried about too much white but debated painting the backside of unit where shelves are and/or adding lots more colourful vases etc to the unit. Behind where the photo was taken from is the kitchen. See photo attached.

Thanks for posting the second photo. I see you have more white seating and an all white kitchen so it would be a lot of white but it's a look that could work. I wouldn't paint the backside of the shelving unit as it will close the space in. But do put some more vibrant objets on the shelves. What do you think of going with a green pendant light instead (see attached)? Also, I wouldn't go with the Foscarini Caboche - don't see glass working in your space.

Wow thanks! I really like the Perspex looking light. Less keen on the drum. Do you have the details of that light? Thanks so much for your great advice! By the way I was thinking of getting roller blinds over the dining room patio doors and kitchen window in a simple white voile. I realise more white! Do you think that's a mistake? The blinds would only be down over the doors at night when entertaining. We'd keep them up during the day.

Me too! Very sculptural and original. Here's the link: http://www.allmodern.com/SLAMP-Gemmy-Suspension-Pendant-GEM04SOS0000-XMP1020.html - No I think the all white (including the blinds) is a good way to go in your space. Just punctuate it here and there with colour. If you do end up using my suggestion would you mind posting a review on my Houzz profile saying that I helped you? I'm trying to grow my online design business and such a review could help!

Rebecca was very helpful in suggesting a pendant light fitting for my dining area and in giving general advice on the overall look. Would recommend her.
