Dining Room: Bring on the Light

Ok, so we do need a couple more things to round our the dining room. Artwork and a lighting fixture. I’m on the lookout for a great canvas of sorts or a giant photograph – but that will take some time. For now, let’s get some good lighting going.

I’ve already shared some of my favourite pendants for the kitchen. Some of those would work well in the dining room as well. But to keep things fresh, here are some new picks:

If my ceilings were limitless, so to speak, I’d snag a Serge Mouille piece or something by Brooklyn based, Lindsey Adelman. I’m in love with her glass blown fixtures. They’re available at Hollace Cluny and are oh so stunning.


Lots of good things are coming out of Brooklyn these days, and David Weeks Studio is no exception. He makes some amazing lighting fixtures, as seen below.

The London Townhouse of Christine D’Ornano was featured in Elle Decor a few months ago (and featured in a previous posting) The pendants seen below are vintage lamps from the Rover car factory. They remind me of the Caravaggio pendants I love so much. Top photo care of Elle Decor. Bottom photo by Lerkenfeldt Photography.

Below: Secto 4201 pendant. Designed by Seppo Koho for Secto Design. Made from Finnish birch.

To wrap things up, here are a few room shots from Avenue-Road in Toronto and Varenna Kitchens.

    I have a secto octo pendant over my kitchen island. it's beautiful but castes a very distinct, sometimes distracting shadow. You should test it out first. Another beautiful light fixture is from canadian designers Brothers Dressler. They do a 'branches chandelier' (which I have in my dining room) it's so beautiful, and locally made. I have always loved the serge mouille fixtures. If only they weren't so expensive!
