Farmhouse Pendant Lighting

We moved into this house last year, and I have wanted to replace the pendant lights ever since then. The builder had put in some basic lights that just weren’t very unique. However, it was very difficult for me to find something that I truly loved. I love globe pendants but most of them were very modern looking.  (Here is the ugly “before” photo I snapped)

I finally found these pendants while searching through instagram pages. I actually couldn’t find the link for the original product but I did a random google search and found them. They were by Decor Therapy and they are called Clifton Pendants.

As much as I LOVED these pendants, I was very worried about the size. All the descriptions said that they were 12 inch globes. That would be very large.  I figured if they were that large, I might just cap the middle pendant on my ceiling and just hang two. Because of this, I bought the pendants at Home Depot. There were some other sources where the lights were a little bit cheaper ($10 less per light on average), however, I knew that if they didn’t work, I would have to pay return shipping which would cost me more. Home Depot does free ship-to-store, and then if you don’t like it, you can return it in store.

Some stores have them in multiple color options., If they had a black option, I MAY have purchased that but all I saw was brushed nickel and oil-rubbed bronze. I went with the brushed nickel and I am super happy with how they look.

Size wise, I am not sure where they are getting the 12inch globe number from at all these stores, because the globes are more like 9 inches in diameter, much to my delight! 12 inches would have been too big, but 9 was PERFECT! 

They also do NOT come with the Edison bulbs, but I had Edison bulbs left over from a special order I made for my fan. These Edison bulbs are brighter and produce a whiter light than traditional Edison bulbs. You can find them on Amazon here

I took a couple photos of the lights on as well so you can see how they look. They really brighten the room., I love them and I am so glad we made the decision to buy them!
