So, I've pretty much decided to put my house on the market this spring which is only fun since it means I now have to finish all that I started and that is going to be a rush probably to do.
There is one thing that dawned on me that I could use some help with. I have antique lights which I am not leaving with the house. They are too hard to find, too valuable, and I love them too much for that. That leaves me needing 3 new lights. The problem is the way this place is laid out there is one in my office/former 'dining room' which is a room separated from the LR by french doors. There is one in half the LR in what can also be a 'dining area'. My debate with myself is what to do since as I have it arranged I could put a hanging light in the dining area but that screws things up if someone thinks the office area is the dining area. If I hang a hanging one in the office, I'll be whapping my head as it's right in the center of the room. I also need a light in my entry which can't hang very far or the door will hit it. I'd like the 3 to have something in common since they can all pretty much be seen at the same time.
Now there were boob lights here originally and those were taken away because I hate boob lights. I don't want to put up boob lights again either.
The other lights I'm considering are some tacky sconces I have but I'd require some that can be switched on and off since they aren't wired into a wall switch.
Has anyone seen anything out there that would work and be reasonably priced? I'd like to keep the look going with the 1930's in some respect, either more mission/craftsman style or the 1930's modern look.
Here's one of the original pictures of the LR. YOu can see the one boob light in the 'dining area' and ugly sconce.
