Wavy Shade Adds Whimsical Touch to Industrial Pendant Lights
Sometimes it takes just one small thing to spark an idea or offer the inspiration you need to create the space of your dreams. For Claudia, it was a photo of a kitchen designed by Sarah Richardson.
“I’ve had this picture in my phone for years!” Claudia relates. “I love everything about it especially the fluted lights.” When Claudia started remodeling her cottage-style home in the Lake Harveston neighborhood of Temecula, California, she searched for fluted pendants like the ones in the photo above.
“Our single-story home has a combined kitchen, dining, and living room,” she explains. “The first thing you see is a giant island that did not have any overhead lights. For me, these hanging pendants set the mood for the whole space!”
Buying American-made fixtures was important to Claudia and she wanted the ability to customize the pendants to complement her gray marble backsplash, the stainless appliances, and the Marie Calendar metal artwork on the wall.
Claudia customized her new pendants with 16″ shades which is the largest of the three shade sizes offered. From more than 40 finish colors, she chose a Galvanized finish to complement the other industrial elements in her kitchen. The stems were also easy to customize with seven options; Claudia’s pendants hang 24″ from the ceiling bringing them to the perfect height over the island.
“These lights have a strength that stands up to our large island,” she notes. “The solid stems offer a strong vertical design that draws your eye up to the tall ceilings. My favorite part is the simple shade that fans out to the whimsical fluted edge.”
The fun Seaside design is also available as a cord hung or chain hung pendant, gooseneck light, wall sconce, and post mount light. Like most of our fixtures, the Seaside is handcrafted and made to order on site in our Florida manufacturing facility.
“I love everything about them!” Claudia says. “Thank you for having such a wonderful, whimsical, industrial yet feminine light for my new kitchen!”
