I have been itching to add some modern elements to the house, mostly in the shape of lighting. And although the sconce shown a few posts ago is not exactly modern, the following light fixtures are. In this, as in many other design things, I am inspired by my former neighbor, and visionary amateur decorator, Dawn. I am seriously considering the first fixture (in medium) for the small-ish dining room (over our Shaker table), and the second is a contender for the eat-in area, over an equally traditional (and perhaps more formal) dining table from Rob’s grandparents. I would love opinions on these items in juxtaposition with our things, as most of you have seen our furniture and know what its all about.
