Love this pendant light, but no light-fittings on this website... do they perhaps just sell them locally in their stores? :(

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to City View: Denver Design Soars
"Wall coverings and wallpapers are back in a big way," says DiCaprio. "The painted accent wall has been replaced with a wallpapered, tiled or wood-wrapped accent wall.
Sara Rivka Dahan added this to Pep Up With Patchwork Tiles
A Denver kitchen nook takes on a dramatic yet playful backdrop thanks to a brilliant collage of patterned Cuban tile. An asymmetrical assemblage works especially well in contrast to the tight symmetry of the space, and the wall area covered by the tile is just enough to host a beautiful collage without overwhelming. This is patchwork tile perfection in my book.Tip: Choosing tile for your home can be overwhelming on account of the endless sea of options. Focusing on a patterned tile that you love (and might use sparingly) could be a great starting point for choosing a color palette and a style direction.
Tile mosaic + hammered pendant light. Craft a worldly look with a mosaic of mismatched tiles like the Cuban tile shown here, printed cushions and a hammered silver or copper pendant light. Benches are extra cozy, but a tiled accent wall alone could add oomph to any breakfast nook.
Karen Egly-Thompson added this to 7 Great Places for a Hammered Metal Finish
Stylistically, the hammering on this pendant light fixture fits this Cuban-themed breakfast nook. Bentz of Handcrafted Metal notes that while American hammering patterns tend to be smaller, tighter and random, hammering styles in other countries tend to use larger tools, and the marks tend to be in geometric formations or rows.The cost for hammered metal products is difficult to calculate because the metal types, sizes and thicknesses vary, as well as the hammering desired. Handcrafted Metal calculates it as an option added to the base price of the metal. “We think of hammering as an added step,” Bentz says. “We start with smooth copper and add the hammering. In general the price to add hammering to any of the soft metals — copper, zinc, pewter, brass — is about $50 per square foot.”More: 5 Places to Love Corrugated Metal in Your House
“With all of its dimensional changes and divots, perhaps no other metal finish plays with light as dramatically as a hammered one.” — Karen Egly-ThompsonOh, this story had me hankering for some hammered metal somewhere in the house, but I especially love the idea of it bouncing light around a room at night.

Wrap around a window Embrace excess with wall tiles in a riot of geometric patterns. Each share a white backdrop, which helps tie together the most unconnected designs. By arranging them around a window there is a natural visual break, too, so things don’t become too overpowering over breakfast.
