    We are beginning a kitchen remodel with Revere Pewter colored cabinets! I want to accent with black window grids and trim and this light fixture will be the perfect complement!

    As soon as I can convince my hubby we need open shelving by our kitchen sink, I want to replace the florescent light over the sink with a pendant — this would look perfect!

    Large mahogany farm table, cross back side chairs, with two blue damask covered parsons chairs on the ends. Above the masterpiece below hangs the gaudiest light fixture to ever be designed. The space is crying for something unique…something engaging. It is crying for the metal strap globe lantern!

    I’m remodeling my kitchen and this light would be perfect over the nook area – I call my look – rustic glamour. My plan is to have neutral walls with a different color ceiling, light cabinets, and a banquette eating area. The light will give it that rustic yet glamour look.

    What a beautiful light fixture. I have never seen anything so pretty and Im sure that when company comes over they will notice it as well. It would look great with my pan rack made from similar material. I have the primitave decor in my large eat in kitchen. I would hang this over my kitchen table. it could go with the primative look very well but yet it has a classy look to to give the dinning area a little taste of formal. It will just set the mood for a nice relaxed meal blending in well with the antique hutch and the newly stained pie cabnet

    We have lived in our house for 10+ years and it needs updating before we retire!

    We’re replacing the lights in our kitchen and living room (old silver style) and this would fit perfectly. Our house is an ivory painted brick on the exterior and the inside has a southern charm. The kitchens creamy white cabinets and black granite counter tops would be a great accent to this rustic light. The walls are painted an olive green color in our kitchen and a warm gold/brown in our living room and foyer. The brazilian cherry hard wood floors would also accent this beautiful light! Love it!!

    We’re renovating our kitchen and need a new fixture. Ours is original to the house ( 1978 ). I would love to have something new, contemporary and stylish. This would be a great fit.

    This light would be great in our new kitchen. The round shape is interesting as shown in the picture, and the “atom” look fits nicely with our small vintage kitchen appliance collection from the 40s/50s. But, being able to change it on occasion really fits us to a T! We love to update our look & this light is perfect for that. We also love the metal strap color and how it pops against the white background.

    We had a dream. When the kids were done with daycare and enrolled in public school, we’d start using the money we’d save to slowly start updating our 1960’s house. Of course I lost my job as soon as both kids hit school, so I had to rely on a meager freelance income and, well, updating became much less of a priority. Three years later we’re at the point where we’re actually able to work on updating and one of our first impulses is to change out the faded 60’s overhead light in our entry hall. It is small with brass and etched glass- doesn’t go at all with the stylish black hall-tree my father-in-law made for us which currently resides in this space. My wife spotted this give-away on Facebook and told me to look at the picture. After rolling my eyes and sighing, I actually looked at the Metal Strap Globe Lantern – and was instantly in love. The piece is funky and classic at the same time and will enhance the warm and inviting look we are going for. Paired with our pale hardwood floors and floral hook rug, the warm glow from this unique light fixture is sure to set the tone as visitors enter our home. And as a lifelong science nerd, I immediately saw the Globe as reflective of the old symbol for atoms. Science plus style equals the perfect beginning to our long awaited home updating adventure.

    The Metal Strap Globe Lantern – Large from Shades of Light does not go with most of the decor in this more than 30 year old mobile home but my bedroom has a stars and moons ceiling that glows in the dark and this hanging in there would make it even more cosmic!!!

    I would fit my decor to suit this lantern–not the other way around. i think I would love to have part of our Family Room reconfigured around this lantern, to brighten the area containing a multifunctional table where we dine, play games, use our laptop PC, do crafts, sewing and art work.

    The lantern from Shades of Light closely resembles the spinning Globe from 1965 World’s Fair in New York, which I attended on the last day. That Day and the World Fair are such lovely memories for me– the sights I saw, things I learned, places I went, people I met, and family I stayed with up in New York during my trip are forever fresh in my mind. What a joy it would be to have this light fixture in my home!

    I’m in the process of remodeling my small kitchen. This light fixture would match my drawer and cabinet handles and save me bunches of money.

    In my bathroom, I have struggled with finding the perfect lighting fixture. It is mint green in color, a lake house, and the ceiling has tin on it. The tin has totally thrown me off, and we bought the house with the tin ceiling. I think the tin works because it gives it that “lake house” feel. I can’t find a fixture that I like best! Honestly, I think this may work! It it the first time I have even thought of using a globe-shaped lantern!

    I have been looking for something in my foyer, we have been in our house for 10 years now and have changed our taste a lot since moving in. This would be perfect and unexpected. Love it.

    Shades of Light is one of my all-time favorite hardware designers in the industry. I have a pinterest board for light fixture ideas for the new home we are building, and probably 3/4 of the designs on there are from this company. I have a special fondness for pretty metallics and am just dreaming of a unique, statement-making special piece for our new entry way. It is a large area and needs something breathtaking to make a great first appearance when visitors walk through the door. I cannot say enough good things about Shades of Light… the hard part would be finally settling on one choice! Maybe this would give me room for 2 in the budget!? Fingers crossed! 🙂

    One of the most eclectic lights I’ve ever seen. Remodeling our kitchen again, adding more kitschy elements like burnished metals, shabby bronzes, perfect cement gray wall color, stainless steel appliances, pops of color frames/old aged kitchen accessories on the hutch and the walls. This light will shine above and highlight an aged corner dining table with a bench…seen from our second floor living room cutout. You’re perfect. Where have you been all of my life?
