Building a Dream House: Farmhouse-Inspired Chandeliers

We ordered most of the lights for the Dream House long before we needed them. Because our construction took longer than we expected it to, lots of things like light fixtures, drawer pulls, and medicine cabinets, sat around in boxes in our garage waiting and waiting and waiting to be added to the house. Luckily, we ended up being really happy with most of the stuff we chose when we finally had everything installed. We have had a little problem with the pendant light over our kitchen table. It’s not that we don’t like it–we do! We have two of them over the dining room table and three of them over the kitchen island. The pendant light just doesn’t cast enough light over the kitchen table. The kitchen table is in the breakfast nook, which has no recessed lighting and no sconces, just a single light fixture above the table. The pendant light just isn’t going to cut it–we need a chandelier!

We’re super excited to get some kind of fantastic light fixture over the kitchen table. We need a farmhouse chandelier, but those can be kind of tricky because farmhouses don’t really have chandeliers. But there are so many cool farmhouse-inspired chandeliers out there, and I’ve rounded up some of my favorites here!

One option with lots of other sub-options built into it is using two or three small pendants in place of one larger light fixture. We only have the spot wired for one light, so this isn’t an option we’re going with, but if you do, it opens up a whole world of fixture possibilities. [from BHG]

This large, metal and glass pendant light combines industrial and farmhouse styles in a sleek, white kitchen.

I love this chandelier because it is so unchandelier-like. I like that it is a single light fixture with multiple bulbs, and that it is really cool. It’s not frilly or fancy. [from Home & Garden Sphere]

This rectangular chandelier with glass panes in metal frames combines industrial and rustic farmhouse styles.

This may or may not be the style we just ordered last night! I love the dark metal trim framing large panes of glass, and housing multiple bulbs for a nice, bright breakfast nook. This kind of chandelier reminds me of a greenhouse, which I always love. [from Design Sponge]

This chandelier featuring multiple small pendants looks like a collection of vintage jars.

For a modern spin on homespun, this great farmhouse light fixture features a collection of pendants that resemble mason jars. This particular one is a little more upscale, but there are ones that use actual mason jars for a very cute, casual chandelier. [from Architectural Digest]
