five things j’adore

We’re looking for a pendant light for our bedroom as we’re now using a simple chinese paper lamp (I really love its beam spread, It’s great for reading). I had no idea how different and original pendants and chandeliers are nowadays, TILL I threw a glance at them online. Some of them are really a piece of art and to be honest I really didn’t know about pendants other than the ones that Ikea offers where we bought our all lightings. 

I do like the geometric designs and sharp edges but I know that in a bedroom, above the bed, there shouldn’t be a pendant that has sharp points or edges. (Feng shui rules)  Therefore, although I really like #2, #7 and #8, they shouldn’t be in a bedroom. #3 and #1 seem proper and stylish but I wonder how they spread the light as It’s like a naked bulb in the middle of the room’s ceiling. Also #9 is unpredictable because it also reflects light.  #11 gives me the feeling that it’s not heavy and whenever I enter the room, it would give a dizziness because it’d swing by the airflow. But it’s still my favorite after #10, a handmade wood light with natural beads. I have no idea what “natural beads” mean but I know I don’t pay $1.150 for a wooden chandelier. But still, it’s my favorite. 

#4, #5 and #6 seem reasonable though I’m not sure about the last one. I like the style, the colours but maybe it needs a little bit “posher” bedroom than ours. 

I’m happy with our chinese paper lamps but husband and I both think it’s time to pimp our rooms a little bit. We’re not planning to spend pots of money on a pendant but we want a fancy one.

  1. Lovely chandeliers! But yes, the pointed ones look dangerous. As if they’re bobby traps set all over the house and ready to fall to pierce thieves :)
