i have finally, finally hung my patrick townsend white orbit chandelier. i’ve only had this collecting dust in my garage for, oh, a year or so. i loved this pendant lamp at first site when i saw it hanging in the curiosity shoppe — but for some reason i just couldn’t pull the trigger on whether i should hard wire it to the ceiling, or hang it with the cord it came with.
i went with hard wire, and i added a faux ceiling medallion to add a little vintage contrast to the modern fixture. the orbit comes in black, too, and makes a pretty striking statement. you can find them at areaware. townsend design makes some other pretty fabulous lighting fixtures, too — like the awesome string lamp. here’s a peek at a few other looks.
the lovely artist ashley g has one in her dining room, too!
