Bell-ieve it or not

Believe it or not we changed our mind on Casa Statt’s kitchen pendant lighting. Are you surprised?  If you remember in this post we were sold on the glass globe from West Elm or Pottery Barn. No questions asked we were ordering one of those globes. Yet, after much deliberation we ordered the kitchen’s pendant lighting this week and we decided on…drum roll please…the Rustic Glass Pendant from Pottery Barn.


Pottery Barn


This bell-shaped light is just what we were looking for and we can’t wait to see them lighting up or beautiful new, clean kitchen.

Here’s the reason for the switch. Our top choice was the West Elm globe, but while ordering quickly realized we had to purchase two lighting kits. This was a turnoff. Meanwhile, we started to prefer the Pottery Barn globe for its modern and rustic feel. When we went to order this light, the pricing had changed and that was a turnoff. We changed our thinking and shopped around. When we did, we landed on this great PB light.

It made us realize that whatever our rationale, things happen for a reason and something made us feel uncomfortable ordering either of the globe lights. As consumers this power of choice is the only one we have and it’s strong. I’m glad we didn’t purchase the other lights. It forced us to look further and we found something we like even better!

  2. I was so excited to find these pendants on your blog. We are in the process of renovations and I’m seriously considering them, but before I buy, thought I’d check in to see if you had any more feedback. Do you still like them? We are thinking of putting them in the kitchen over the counter/bar that separates the kitchen from the living room. Q: Do you think they are too bright? I’m concerned about the glass being too clear. Thoughts? Suggestions?
