Found: Mid-Century style chandelier lighting

A quickie tonight readers… (I just can’t stay away after the warm reception you all gave me yesterday here and on Instagram. Thank you!)

I’m hoping to bring you all a before/after reveal of our dining room renovation very soon, but for once in this Forth Road Bridge of a house, I’d like to actually finish the room first. I’m very good at sorting the big stuff like fireplaces and decoration but not so good at styling the finishing touches. Must try harder.

Anyway, we are currently short of some kind of mirror or art installation on two of the walls and a light. Lighting and I have a complicated relationship. I’m a bit of a fussy madam when it comes to light fittings and have expensive taste. Show me a design classic or something pricey and I’m likely to be all over it, but as my post alluded to yesterday, we’ve got a few outgoings planned (understatement of the year) with this extension so something a bit kinder to the budget would be preferable. Maybe it won’t be a forever light but let’s face it, it’s unlikely I’ll find another one soon and if I have to look at the Laura Ashley circa 2009 butterfly shade that is 50 shades of wrong in there any longer, I may just shut the door and never go back in.

So help me choose readers! Sputnik style or Asymmetrical glass shades? I need to move quickly on this one as the Sputnik style is 20% off until tomorrow night at M&S!

Love, Rebecca.

PS, before I spotted these two today, I was considering this Multi-outlet industrial style light fitting from Dowsing and Reynolds, with the plan to get longer cable and spread the bulbs out across the ceiling – let me know if you prefer it!

  1. I think the Made light. It’s fab. The other one is too similar to your kitchen light. P.S so pleased you are back!! ????

  2. I think the Made one is the nicest. Fab to have you back. It gets easier with two as they get bigger, so much so that we had a third! As they get older and play together it’s lovely to see.
