You know how I’ve been looking for a ceiling mount light for the entry to the master bedroom? After looking at about a bazillion of them, I can definitely state this category of lighting has more ugly choices than good ones. That’s why it’s taken me nearly three years to find one that 1) I like; and 2) Doesn’t cost and arm and a leg.
Well, this weekend, I finally pulled the trigger. Here are the five I finally narrowed my choices down to and how I came to my final decision.
I love a good sputnik but this particular one doesn’t really work with the style of my house.
I still love this one. In fact, I went and drooled on it at the Ochre store when I was in New York last week. But it’s more than I want to spend on a space that is not very prominent. (It’s also technically not a ceiling mount although I could have made it work.)
This one was a real contender for a while but over the past couple of years I’ve gotten a little tired of seeing similar lights. (It’s one of the perils of blogging.) It’s still a nice classic look though and the black trim is great.
At one point, I was so fed up with looking at lights, I thought I’d just default to a basic drum. You can never go wrong with a simple drum shade anything.
This was the winner in the end. The style is right, it’s a nice size, got great reviews and the kicker? The price. It’s $249.99 (list $374.99) but currently on sale for $199.95. Plus no tax and free shipping made it hard to say no. Now, let’s just hope it’s not disappointing in person! I’ll let you know…..
