I’m in the process of doing some redecorating in my office and here’s Part I in case you missed it.
I’m in the middle of a lighting conundrum. You see, I was quite certain I wanted this.
I see it as abstract branches more than coral. But I have two concerns, 1. is it too beachy 2. it’s not stark white
So I did some looking around and I’ve got some alternates. But the results of my search have ended in a few conclusions. The main conclusion is that there isn’t really a lot out there for under $400 that is both stylish, isn’t a drum shade or paper pendant and provides more than 60 watts. Maybe I’m just missing it. If you’ve got any source suggestions I’d love to hear them.
Out of the budget but its ok to dream,
Turns out PB Teen has some good choices and I’m leaning heavy towards capiz shell,
Could kick it bamboo/pagoda style or go vintage chinoiserie,
nice brassy sub for the Arteriors chandy above,
a modern, sensible white chandy,
Robert Allen, Ebay
A more glamorous shell-like fixture,
Faceted and super delish but outside of the budget,
Love this one but again not enough wattage,
Thanks for playing,
And now a quick word from our sponsors!

I like the simple brass soho, but it doesn’t appear to be available under $400. Really liking the idea of a little brass against your dark blue walls, but I can see the initial appeal of the white branchy coral thing.
You know me, I’d go out to the thrift stores and find something with some strange character and spray paint it.
The right capiz pendant could be awesome. I have about 50000000 capiz shells on strings sitting in the cellar of my house in NC….. doing no one any good.
Best of luck in your pendant pursuit. If you want Jeff’s dining room chandelier, I could send it to you.
I like the brass idea too. Also considering white. Currently wimping out on a brass circle pendant thingy on OKL. https://www.onekingslane.com/product/14262/594903
