Last weekend we stopped in at World Market on our way to the hardware store. As usual, they had some great finds. I had been searching for some sort of light fixture for our powder room - the old ugly one was discarded when Scott's parents painted the room. I wanted something more pendant-like (versus a flush mount) but that didn't hang too low. Also, it had to illuminate the room sufficiently. So many of the items I found were perforated metal or colored glass and just made the room too dim. The $39 Harriet Glass Lamp has that old school industrial vibe I was looking for and with the glass shade (and exposed filament bulb) it had the right amount of illumination. AND most certainly the right price. Now, I have to caveat this by saying that California has some new laws that are slightly ridiculous. The pendant came with a fluorescent bulb. Can you imagine this pendant with a CFL in it? Not so much. I'm all about saving energy, but when it makes sense.
