I’m firmly convinced that somewhere, in the Handbook for Home Building, there is a decree: “And let there be boob lights”. Naturally, our house boasts two of these curvaceous light fixtures in the front hall – which are somehow SO MUCH WORSE in a pair than flying solo. The front hallway looks rather… mammary, doesn’t it?
So, while I was patiently waiting (OK, the patient part is a lie) for fabric samples for the living room mini-makeover – which has now stretched into a marathon mini-makeover – I did some snooping on Overstock.com. Lo and behold, I discovered a much prettier alternative to light fixtures that ought to wear a bra.
But the $299 price tag was too steep for me to stomach. So, when Overstock.com was rocking a lighting sale, I managed to snap up TWO of these lights for less than the cost of a single Pottery Barn fixture – with shipping.
Also, if Pottery Barn’s Clarissa Glass Chandelier makes you swoon (and the $399 price tag does the same), have no fear – Overstock.com carries its twin. Without that ginormous price tag. Their version is just $175.99.
Of course, now it’s time to patiently wait for my pretties to arrive (and to con the hubby into helping with installation, since my 5-foot stature won’t get me anywhere close to the ceiling, even on our tallest ladder). Then we can say sayonara to these poorly designed headlights.
Anyone else suffering from the plight of the boob light?
