West elm clear glass pendants? Anybody?

thedorkSeptember 11, 2013

Love the look and the price - not sure about the quality? Anybody? Do they look too big ( 10.5'' diameter ) for a 3x4 island?
Would love to have something simple, clear glass but dramatic :)

Please share your thoughts. Thank you!

I have nothing to add (other than I think it looks good) but thought an easier link would help people find it and weigh in.

I like it and can see one or possibly two of them over your island. However, why don't you mock up the pendants using balloons blown up to the approximate size, tied to string, and taped to the ceiling over your island. I did this and it was really, really helpful. If your island's not in yet, mock that up with cardboard boxes as well.

Too large ....10.5' in diameter x 2 fixtures for a 36"x48" island won't work.

You could use these from Restoration Hardware. They're only 5' in diameter $99.

Lowes and HD have some bare filament pendants also.

Thank you both!

Beverly: I looked at those but I am not a big fan of the black wire - would prefer something with clear or silver. They are great though! Will check them on more time.
Do you thin I should stay close to 8" or even need to go smaller - 5- 6''? Thank you!

I also need line voltage pendants since for low voltage I would need a transformer - my line is regular voltage - open for suggestions - thank you!

These are the ones I have chosen and might work. The glass is clear, despite looking kind of smoky in the picture.

I have no idea what the "low voltage" thing is that you mention so I don't know whether these would work in that regard.

I don't have anything to say about this exact fixture, but I have a West Elm chandelier in my dining room, and the quality seems good. Also, everyone loves it :)
