Mid-century style pendant lights

While catching up on some old Retro Renovation posts a few days ago, I ran across information about three amazing Tom Dixon style pendant lights at a price so low I couldn't believe my eyes. Since the post was from 2010, I felt sure they would no longer be available, but, as luck would have it, two of the three styles are still in stock at the same regular low price...$29. If that weren't amazing enough, when I checked back yesterday, I found them on sale for $24!

They are from Patriot Lighting and are available online at Menards. While I think the pendant styles would be spectacular hung in a group at varying heights over a mid-century dining table, hung singly over a kitchen sink or in a row over a bar, the line also includes a $24.99 three-head track light in the same finish. I haven't seen any of these, so I can't speak to the quality, but at that price, what do you have to lose? If nothing else, they'd be perfect placeholders till you find a great bargain on a vintage fixture or win the lottery and buy the one on 1stdibs that you keep fantasizing about owning.

I really like the oxide bronze finish, but I can also picture these painted white, red, turquoise, yellow or chartreuse. The possibilities are limitless.

  1. I love those, esp. the 2nd one. Forwarding it to my brother so he can get rid of the rococo travesty of a chandelier he still has hangining over his Broyhill Saga set...

  3. So cool. I keep thinking this is a project I should attempt. Then I wake up and remember I can hardly turn ON a lamp much less install one.
