My requirements were simple: light diffuser (the old one would glare like crazy), around $100, and have a modern look. I must have looked at hundreds of lights in my search, but it was really hard to find something that fit all of my requirements (especially the price!). Thanks to a few recent giveaways on blogs I read, CSN Lighting came onto my radar. From track lighting to outdoor lighting, CSN had literally thousands of options for me to choose from in my search. After narrowing my results down to only the lights that fit my requirements, I found a potential winner. There was only one drum pendant light out there at a better price (a very popular blog features it in their dining area), but I realized that I'd have to pay an additional $100 for my electrician to convert it from a plug-in to hardwired light (boo!). So when CSN contacted me about doing a product review for the blog, I knew the Olwen Three Light Pendant Lamp was the clear winner!
It's only $109 (with free shipping), takes three 60 watt bulbs, makes a great modern statement, and comes with a glass diffuser. Plus, the installation was easy enough for me to do myself (well, I did have a lovely assistant... thanks Nate!). I'd say that it's a keeper!
(I did have the light moved over 1-2 feet so that it would hang center in the room).
What do you think about my new light?
