Help with lighting

B and I are in need of new 3 new light fixtures for our breezeway and our laundry room.  Currently ours are completely awful hobnail glass with the bulb exposed.  I don't have a picture, but trust me, they're just bad.

We definitely are looking for a silver base, a semi-flushmount, and I don't really want the bulb to be exposed.  A few of the ones I am thinking about are below.  Do you have an opinion on any of them?  I really can't decide at this point, so I'd love some guidance!!

Has anyone ordered lighting online?  Anyone have suggestions for me?  We're definitely getting places in our redesign- I just wish I had a week off to GET IT DONE!!!  Oh well, it'll be a sweet sigh of relief once it's finished!


  1. I really like the first one. It's modern, but still elegant. I've never ordered lighting online, but I don't think it could be too painful. Best of luck!

  2. I love both one and two. Is there a difference in the amount of light they provide? My daughter has a fixture similar to the first one, but with the closed globe design, it provides very little light. I'm wondering if the more open design of the other ones would allow more light and be brighter.
