Pendants anyone? We just just got an email from Fred Shamblen at Alluminaire Lighting telling us that they are an "awesome customized lighting store," and we have to say that a super confusing website aside, they might just be on to something. Pendant lighting is beautiful when done well, but complicated to put together and expensive as well. Alluminaire cuts to the chase, and allows you to design your own lighting in a relatively few easy steps, pay for it and wait for it to arrive on your doorstep in ten days or less. Not bad.
We put together almost exactly what you see in the picture above and the price came out to $175. Not bad either. Sure, you could do it for a little less, but you would have to leave your home and spend an hour or two at a shop. Our big question is, "How's the quality?" Alluminaire is proud of their quality, and will allow you to return your lamp for up to 30 days, if you are not satisfied. If you are looking for a nice big drum lamp or smaller cylinder pendants for your home, give these folks a try, tell them that we sent you, and let us know what you find. MGR
