Lighting is one of the mos important aspects of any home. I mean can you imagine your house without it? Since I have been working on redoing the house I thought I would look at some new lighting as well. Our living room only has the lights on the ceiling fan and that is it. Above the kitchen cabinets are some fluorescent lights but they have blown out and I haven’t replaced them yet. Hubby is so tired when he is home that I don’t want to ask him to do it.
I discovered 1800Lighting and wanted to visit a showroom but since I am in Georgia I had to settle on visiting their website. I spent some time searching around at the different lights they had trying to decide if I wanted a lamp or new chandelier or something else. I discovered that they sell light bulbs including those fluorescent ones so I know some items I will be ordering.
Finally I decided that I really love this Maxim Lighting 85804 Linda EF Energy Smart 19 Inch Single Tier Chandelier for my dining room. I was looking to change the one that is currently in there because I will be getting a new dining room table soon and I wanted to update the 1950′s one that is currently there.I was looking for something that would blend a little better with my farmhouse table that is coming soon and would work well with everything else. The Maxim Lighting Chandelier seems like the perfect fit for our home and our lifestyle. I love that it can blend with the farmhouse cottage look that I am going for (sort of shabby chic) but would also look great for more formal needs as well. The Oil Rubbed Bronze color makes it perfect for any color scheme since I have decided what color I am doing the dining room in. What do you all think? Is this perfect for my farmhouse cottage look?
If you think a another style would be better I would love to know. Visit 1800Lighting and come back leaving the link so I can check it out. When a style has been decided upon (100% completely because hubby is not sure yet) then we will post pictures and if we choose a style that is different but suggested by a reader will give that reader a $50 Visa Gift Card as a thank you. No matter what style we choose we know 100% that we are choosing a style from 1800Lighting!
