Help me understand lightbulb types for pendant lighting over isla
For my 48 x 36 inch island task lighting I have decided to use a single fixture that can hang 3 mini pendant lights. The idea is to have good task lighting but have the shade offer some softer light from the side and decor. I have dimmers to that circuit as well. When I look online, I find many options such as the one below. Some have a 60 W bulb, some call for a 40W B13. At the local lighting store they use 50 W halogen which allows for much thinner wires to hang it. When looking online, the tendency is to look at the shade and hardware finish. You often can't search on bulb type. Does anyone have a good explanation of bulb options or any views on the pros and cons?
Here's an example of what I'm looking for.
