Choosing A New Ceiling Light Fixture

jestcafe.com---choosing-light-fixture-3

I need to replace my light fixtures through out my house, specially the living room. I still have the ones that came with the house when we bought it and they are… how do I put it?… mmm… repulsive comes to mind.

I want a brass fixture, like everybody else in the world. A couple of years ago, I wanted to buy this one:jestcafe.com---choosing-light-fixture-7

Park Studio LA

And I still love it, but, if you follow any design blog in the world, you have seen this fixture (or something similar) in a thousand of spaces. I understand is cute, but I don’t want to jump into this trend wagon too late in the game, like when I bought this Fiddle Fig tree.

Here are other light fixtures I am considering:

This one is a vintage lamp that I think it would look good in my bathroom or hallway. The only problem is that I need to bring it here all the way from France:

For my living room, I would love to have the vertex chandelier or the urchin. The urchin is so nice, but more expensive. For my bathroom, I would like the vintage lamp  because it has so much personality, it is different and vintage… nothing to lose here. For my hallway, I would love to have the ceiling sputnik lamp. Wishful thinking!

What is your opinion? Do you have any favorites from above or other shops?

Thanks for stopping by.

    Wow, you have so many gorgeous pieces here! I think my favorite is probably the Vertex and the Modern Chandelier by Illuminate Vintage. Our house has all of the original light fixtures from 1905 and while I love them I definitely want to swap a few out to make it more our own. I’ve saved about 4 of these to my favorites 🙂

    Love the French Idyll (the shape and texture!) and sazerac Stiches (the colour and simplicity)! But I guess in the end, a fixture is best chosen for how it complements the space which it will illuminate. Hope you will let us know which one you pick and share some pics! 🙂

      You know what, the french Idyll is my favorite too. It is more unique because it is vintage, but, you are right, I should have shown a picture of my space before asking this question! On Instagram, people liked the Urchin light.
