A large glass vintage pendant light above sofa? Help please!

4 years ago

We are building an open plan rear extension, and I'm having difficulty deciding upon lights.

We have chosen 3 x small pendants for the kitchen island. I really like these. (From Industville)

Now I need a pendant for the sofa area. (Rest of open plan space is spotlights.) I've also attached a photo of the sofa we plan to buy. The ceiling is sloping, and there is a black wood stove flue, and large windows overlooking the garden. Colour scheme - grey, green, off-white.

I would like the pendant over the sofa to be large, glass, fit in with a vintage/timeless styling, and dimmable. But lots of glass pendants seem too small for our space; and I'm not keen on the ribbed cafe-style glass. Our budget is approx £130.

Really keen to hear your ideas.

I've attached a photo of a glass vintage bell shaped pendant that I like (from Neptune). It's a good size at 30cm (w) and 45 cm (h). A lot bigger than most. I like it a lot, and it echoes the island pendants, but I'm not sure if it's dimmable. What do you think?

I've also attached a photo of another glass pendant that I like. But it's too small - would need to find a bigger one. Can anyone help me find a larger one?

Any other ideas? (ps the ceiling above sofa is high and pitched/sloping)


(1) the pendant x3 over kitchen island

(2) sofa

(3) idea for sofa pendant #1 (but haven't found a dimmable one)

(4) idea for sofa pendant #2 (but need to find a wide one i.e. at least 30cm wide)
