:: orb - it

Lately I have orbs on my mind. Orb Chandeliers to be exact. I'm trying to decide on one to replace a less than lovely ceiling fan in my new living room. I've known since I moved in that an orb was what I wanted for the space. I'm not one to make quick decisions, so I've been doing my due diligence researching orb chandeliers that I could love in my home. Below are a few options I've come up with. If you know of others, do share. I figure now might be a good time to buy since so many stores are having christmas sales & I'm looking for a good deal.


This jute orb is actually one of my favorites, unfortunately it's no longer available
(kicking myself for waiting). I like the texture of the jute twine ( one of my favorite things ), and also the realistic look of the candles with drippy wax and silicone bulbs.


I like the Ballard Orbs, they have several finishes to choose from and they have good reviews. I personally would lose the crystal ball at the bottom...... & luckily it's removable. So this is a contender for sure.


This strap orb is quite interesting, although maybe a little too heavy & masculine for my space. I do like it a lot though for the right room.


I adore all things TWIG, so of course this caught my eye immediately. Still not sure if it's quite the right look for my space. I could so see this on a screened porch ( hmm, maybe I can find a place for this one after all. )


I really like the simplistic style of this light with it's bare Edison bulb, very cool...though possibly to spare for my taste with it's single bulb. This one though is a contender & the price point is perfect.


Last, but certainly not least Foucault's Iron orb by Restoration Hardware. This is truly where my obsession with orbs began, this one has had my heart from the beginning, I just haven't decided to let it have my purse strings yet. I sometimes believe however that it's best to go with your gut and in the end it's important to have what you love even if it costs a little bit more.

So, which one is your favorite?

Here are a few photos of my new living room... I just took these shot sans tripod and it's late afternoon with little natural light so it looks a bit drab. I almost hate to share because it's still a work in progress & looks a bit unfinished & plain. I would love to hear your opinion on the light choices. Maybe you would even suggest something totally different.

Would love to hear your thoughts on overhead lighting for my room.

  1. Hi Carrie! Your living room is pretty! I like the Ballard orbs, esp. the one on the top right with the lighter finish. I hope you find the orb that is calling to you!

  2. I pick the Restoration Hardware's orb. Beautiful all of them, but that is my favorite!

  3. The only one I like is the last one but I am not an Orb fan, too busy for me. I do think a chandelier would look beautiful in that room with your decor. They never ever go out of style, so that is a plus.

  4. I LOVE the last one! I do believe that we all need to go with that has your heart and spend the extra money. (easy to say when it isn't your money, right?) If you like the one with the jute, how would it be to wrap the one you do buy with jute? The strap one is far too heavy, especially for your beautiful room. I pretty much agree with all your own comments on each piece. Have a very Merry Christmas!


I love seeing your lovely faces & reading your sweet comments. Thanks for taking the time to visit me : ) * I do my best to respond by e-mail, if I miss you please forgive me. peace & love * Carrie
