FABBY: Pendant Lamp Above the Breakfast Table

Hello sweet friends!

   We've been waiting to hang the 'perfect pendant lamp' above our alabaster breakfast table for a long time now and really never found one that would not clash with the the antique Italian chandy we have now in the formal area of the dining room. We have gone to the Antique shop a couple of times before looking for one and to other stores, but to no avail.

While we were in Guayaquil for our little Victoria's First Communion Alejandro went in our Sil's and daughter Sofia's store, where they have some European modern lighting and others as well. They both are designers for home lighting and 'intelligent homes' and cater to private residences and businesses as well. Ok, to make the story short; we've had an standing, or floor lamp,  a modern style in our breakfast area with a faceted sphere, very ethereal....and hubby found the 'very same one' in the pendant style we needed and here you have it...'the perfect hanging lamp for our breakfast area!' 
Hope you like it too.

Here it is pretty and perfect, such a very 'ethereal sphere' with facets all around the sides, which I had to clean each one to assembled it while hubby worked on the ceiling part.

Here is how it looked Before, only with a 'dichroic' lighting in the ceiling.

...and here she is now, our new "perfect sphere pendant lamp," which is also a set with the standing, floor lamp we've had for three years in our home.

Although the photo is somewhat dark, you can appreciate the two of them pretty close together in the same room. In this photo you can tell that the hanging sphere is larger than the floor one.

Here you can see how the modern sphere of the hanging lamp doesn't clash, or compete with the antique chandy, as it is also translucent. We thought about this detail previously too, because our breakfast table is adjacent to the formal dining area. 
This is how I keep my formal dinner table for Fall; when I'm not tablescaping. The tobacco color runner was crocheted by my mother several years ago.

I'm joining Sandi's special party: "A PINK Tea Time Tuesday" at,

 This picture is better as you can appreciate both lamps; the standing one next to the Antique
 Belgium buffet and now the pendant one above the breakfast table. I'm loving this touch of eclecticism here!

We love the contrast these two make, as they're so modern in this breakfast area, where I have two antique and more classic European buffet pieces, along with antique Dutch chairs too and an alabaster table, all the furniture here so much more traditional and classic!

I must add that the hanging lamp's sphere is larger, as opposed to the standing lamp, although in the photo they look almost the same size. 

Thank you for your sweet and kind visits my friends, as you always make my day!

Thanking the ladies that host such great parties each week for having me too.
