The Edison Chandelier is Here

And it’s up, but I still have to play around with the strings and attach them to the ceiling.

Edison Chandelier

FYI, the Edison is HUGE. Especially the bulbs.

I wanted to take a picture of Eleanor having a bright idea, but she has not been in a particularly cooperative mood today. You can use your imagination though. It would have been cute.

This light was purchased with Membership Rewards points courtesy of American Express. I am working with them to redo my bedroom.

    Wow! That is perhaps a little too large. Can you change the bulbs out? Or would that throw off the proportions?

    Will you use a dimmer??? I think it would be awesome with mood lighting, it is a bedroom after all:)

    I bet it’ll look fab when it’s all done! Love the wall color and the striped linens. xoxo

    Do you screw the things that hold the strings to the ceiling? I’m curious how you know where you want them until you see them all up together. Is there a way to put them up temporarily to see what looks right?

    I think the fixture is really cool. Hopefully it works out..

    Holy Moly. How much are replacement bulbs??
    Looks great though. And I really like the paint color.

    Have to ask about the linens… are they super soft? I’m in love with my Macy’s Style & Co 300 thread counts at a GREAT price… softest sheets I’ve ever owned… but have had my eye on those West Elm striped ones and some gray/yellow floral ones they have. Trying to punch up my yellow and gray color scheme that’s going on in the bedroom!

    I’m on the edge of my seat about this fantabulous light fixture. But I’m sort of freaking out. There’s not any pink in that room. Wha happened?!

    Those bulbs are huge! Do you have to special order replacement ones?

    Yikes, it IS big! Does it mention anywhere how often the bulbs need to be replaced? Or how “eco-friendly”/electricity-sucking they are? Really can’t wait to see it up, though… If anyone can make it look good in the bedroom, you can!

    Sometimes, overscale lighting can be very cool – just not TOO overscale – I’m hoping the fixture will work out for you!

    Oh wow… I love this lamp so much. Unfortunately, in my tiny little British new-build it’d look absurd – I love how American houses are always so spacious!
