Our intent with the new/old house has been to keep as much of the old charm as possible. Part of that old charm is the original light fixture in the dining room. It is a great old pendant style light but it just didn't have the kind of presence I wanted for the dining room. Mark wants to keep it in the dining room and I have wanted to find something else for the dining room and use the original dining room fixture in the hallway.
I was ready to concede because I just have not found anything I really like. I just couldn't find anything that fit without looking too "Tiffany craftsman" or more ornate than I like...until now! I LOVE this light fixture for the dining room! I don't know if Mark will agree with this look but it is so turn of the century with just a hint of an industrial look. Now that I have this image in my mind, nothing else looks good.
