One problem with going to the High Point Market this week is that it makes it even harder to choose items for my new house! Once I think I’ve absolutely made my choice, I see hundreds of new ideas and products at market that make me question my decision.
So this week I need your help choosing the lighting for my breakfast room – and my choices fall into two categories. Should I choose a lantern or a chandelier?
I love the casual look of a lantern-style light fixture – in fact I love them so much that I’ve custom-designed some for my clients’ projects! I really like the look of this one because it’s copper. That was a big trend at this week’s High Point Market.

I also like the design of this chandelier with the strands of all-white shells. It removes some of the formality that comes with a chandelier, so it would be perfect in a more casual room like a breakfast area.

So which would you choose, a chandelier or a lantern? And this week I have additional questions – what material should I choose? There are so many colors and metals for a lantern, and a chandelier could be constructed of glass, crystal, shells, metal…the choices are endless!
Let me know in the comments below what you would choose for my breakfast area! I need help narrowing down all of the beautiful choices!
