An uncovered light bulb gives off harsh, intrusive, unfriendly light. It is not pleasant to sit under,and does not facilitate good conversation or good company. If N and I can't decide on a light fixture for the dining room... we might end up with a bare light bulb. We've picked out a few we think we like - but none are REALLY striking home. We haven't re-visited this topic since we picked out the rug, so one of these may very well be an option. These choices are from Lowes and Home Depot. We do have plans to visit a House of Lights as well. We'd love any opinions on the following options to help us decide
We're looking for a dark metal. Other than that... nothing to traditional and something a bit "straight-lined". We also want the bulbs to face up instead of down.
Option 1: I don't love it, but I don't hate it.
Option 2: N is leaning hard towards this one. I'm... not sold. It seems a bit dungeon-y to me, and that's not the way the room is looking. Definitely correct me if this doesn't make you think of a castle though.
Option 3: The globes may be a bit too yellowish, but I know you can buy different globes. I'm just not sure how this would look with white ones.
As you can see, we are a bit all over the place. This is the "last" thing that we have to figure out for the room, aside from the furniture.
