Hello AT,

I wrote in last year asking for advice on how to add color to my living area, and I got some great advice! Sooo I am writing again in search of the perfect pendant lamp/chandelier for my dining area in the same space...

What I have there now is just not right for the space, though I love that it gives off a lot of light. It has four 50w halogens in there now, and I would prefer something more diffuse and less spotlight-like.

I was thinking of a nelson saucer bubble lamp, but I am very much open to suggestions! The ceilings are not high at all, and the space is fairly small. I would be willing to spend up to $400 for just the right thing.

Any ideas? Thanks, "Cat"

Dear Cat,

The Nelson Bubble would be perfect and fit in nicely to your space, we would go for it. Just be careful not to get too small a size. In your space a larger, more ample shape will be more surprising and dramatic.

Anyone else??
