My Favorite Pendant/Semi-Flush Fixtures Under $100

One of the things people tend to forget when working on a space is the lighting. I just don't get it ...  if you're going to invest time & money into your furniture, walls, floors, etc., PLEASE don't forget to upgrade your light fixtures!! Just as any outfit is only as good as the accompanying shoe choice, a room is only as good as its lighting. And if that doesn't sway you, consider this: a good light fixture does more than make a room look more attractive and pulled together, it also makes *you* look more attractive in the room. And if you're still confused, let me break it down further: the difference between a room with ho-hum lighting and one where it's clearly been factored into the design is the interior design equivalent of the difference between "nice" and "bowchickawowow". Make sense now? Good.

Now that we've cleared that up, here' are 10 12 of my favorite pendant fixtures under $100...

*** Keep in mind that the right scale  of pendant is going to depend on *your* room. If you're considering one of these, be sure to take the time to check the dimensions. If you're not sure if it's right, I'd suggest making a template (I usually tell clients to tape pieces of newspaper together and then cut out a shape that matches the fixture's dimensions). Hold the template to where the lowest point would hang and you'll get a really good sense of how the piece will feel in the room... ***
