If you're ever unsure of what 'style' of lighting to choose for your home. Well you can never go wrong with staying with the classics. Look at this traditional schoolhouse light that blends beautifully with the rest of the decor. So easy and transitional. A perfect fit!

I love some of the new products that are available..like the filament Edison inspired, squirrel-cage light bulbs. These light bulbs give such an authentic, vintage look to any light fixture.
A client sent me the picture below with the variety of true vintage pendant lights. She asked me to create a similiar looking pendant.
So, here's my design. I'm often hesitant to use the new rayon, twisted wire that is available because with a glass shade you're beginning to add weight. And that can be dangerous as the twisted wire is not U.L. listed. So I stayed with the black pendant wire.
