Dropped into Beacon Lighting this weekend and was glad I had followed that sudden impulse to turn off the highway.
The Rosetta 15-globe chandelier was on sale, discounted by about $600. It will look beautiful hanging over the black wrought-iron four-poster bed in the main bedroom.
It has 15 small light globes nestled among its silvery branches. The dark red half-opened-rose shapes are made of glass.
Also picked up a pendant shade in the shape of a retro cartoon-style rocket ship – cute and funky, takes a 60W globe. This will either live in the laundry or hang over my desk (wherever that ends up) as a task light.
Both designs have been discontinued, so it was a lucky day for lighting
According to Wikipedia:
- Rocket would be “A pendant light, sometimes called a drop or suspender… a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling usually suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. “
- Rosetta, however, would be “A chandelier … a branched, decorative ceiling-mounted light fixture. Chandeliers are often ornate, using dozens of lamps and complex arrays of glass or crystal prisms to illuminate a room with refracted light.”
