Our 1924 house currently has awful 1970s light fixtures. I am responsible for choosing new fixtures.
Phase 1: The dining room.
The room is small (about 12x15) with two walls of windows -- it gets lots of natural light.
The ceilings are not the most beautiful part of the room so I would like to have something that shines down, or bounces around. The problem is -- most dining room style lights that sit close to the ceiling are "bowl" type lights that shine the light up.
Mo uses the dining room table to do his homework so the room needs to have good lighting for reading, writing, etc., as well as eating meals (we have a tiny kitchen and no breakfast room so all meals are eaten in the dining room).
I like kind of organic shapes but arts and crafts style lights will also work.
So far I've come up with two "styles", while maybe not these particular lights...
Whatever I choose will be there for a long, long time. I want to be sure that I'm considering all the things necessary for good light in the dining room.
What kind of light do you have in your dining room? Why did you choose that light? What advice can you give me?
