To my surprise, I stumbled upon a handful of pendant fixtures by Venice Glass and handblown in Italy. They came from a local lighting store - possibly a special order that wasn't claimed or overstock. Typically they run $100+, but I got 2 at $12.50 each! What a bargain!!!!
They are clear glass shades with a white class inner shade and absolutely beautiful! Now, I just need to make certain they will work in the space and not hang too low. Stay tuned for an update on this fun project!
Oh, I also have been looking for a floor lamp. Not too picky, but I haven't seemed to be able to find something that I loved or thought was worth an overhaul. But, I also lucked out on this same shopping trip and scored a brass floor lamp in good condition for $7.50!!! Of course, brass isn't my cup-of-tea, so I have plans to spray paint in the coming days.
