Tomorrow it's finally time to get rid of the gold UFO hanging from my ceiling!
But what to replace it with?! It's important that the new fixture provides sufficient light. It's the only overhead light in the dining room/living room area, plus the table below it is where I sew and craft.
I would love a chandelier, but it wouldn't work with the 8' ceilings. :( Ceiling fan styles are limited; I didn't find a single one that I really liked. They're all so blah and... fan-like. :P Despite all my searching, I couldn't find exactly the light that I was looking for (typical for me). Here are the options I did find...
Semi-flush mount fixture in oil-rubbed bronze with silver accents.
Pros: Very attractive
Cons: I am not sure bronze would work with all the brushed nickel doorknobs, curtain rods, etc. in the house (though it does have silver accents). Only holds two light bulbs.
Semi-flush mount fixture in white.
Pros: Attractive. White would be unobtrusive on the ceiling.
Cons: Only holds two light bulbs.
Track fixture in oil-rubbed bronze.
Pros: Five bulbs spread over a larger area would light up the room really well. Swirly style is kind of cool.
Cons: Again, I'm not sure bronze would work. I'm not totally in love with the style of the center light.
White ceiling fan.
Pros: Four bulbs. Is a ceiling fan.
Cons: Not very pretty. Is a ceiling fan.
So, my stylish readers whose opinions I value, which would you choose?
