I love the description.... We clued in when the infants would happily stare up at our flush-mount. Since then I've really needed to replace them. Thanks for the reminder about the sale sites.

Frenchdesign, there are dimmer switches that are attached to the table lamp plug. they sit on your table and :-) have a small light so they can be found at night. I used them everywhere. http://www.lutron.com/en-US/Products/Pages/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/AttacheLampDimmer/Overview.aspx

I need a pendant light for a small dining room that has virtually no natural light. We found one with a steel above-shade that is a nightmare: lots of "below" light but overall the room is dark. We find some of the lantern/drum pendants too opaque. Can anyone suggest a dining room light that will give enough overall light without being glaring?

Tara, I know exactly what you mean about your light, mine is similar and definitely not the best choice I made. The metal shade also confines the arc of light over the table and I am seriously thinking of raising the light for this reason, although I hate looking up at bare globes. I am really doubting the practicability of a pendant over a dining table as nice as they look as I find I also have to work around the light when I am setting the table or working in the room. My old light was a ceiling light that gave out good light when needed and I used a dimmer switch when I wanted softer light for eating. I now think I prefer the table setting to be the focal point rather than a light fitting.
