Take a quick look at the lamp dangling over your dining room table. I’m willing to bet that unlike your carefully chosen sofa and your wall art, you didn’t give it much thought when you were piecing together your design scheme. In fact, chances are you didn’t even choose it: It was just there when you moved in — an unwanted inheritance from your home’s last owner.
I know how that goes. I lived with this dull chandelier for years before trading up to something a lot more more exciting. And what a difference that super-simple swap made! The moment I'd hung it up, my dining room finally, finally felt complete. It gave the room a finishing touch that pulled everything together.
And it doesn't take much to make this high-impact change, either — not in money or in effort. Take the 1920s-inspired pendant lamp ahead, as proof. Its tiers of delicate fringe wouldn’t look out of place in Gatsby’s Jazz Age estate yet it costs just $69. All you need to do: Order, unwrap, and plug it in. And then there’s this classic chandelier — all crystals and sparkle and shine — which will set you back just over $100, but certainly doesn’t look like a bargain item.
Whatever your aesthetic, the pendants and chandeliers we hunted down will transform any space, whether that's your living room, dining room, dressing room — wherever! — for less than $250.
