For above our old farm table in the kitchen

I have been keeping my eye out for baskets

and even have gone so far as to hang one I had lying around by fishing line…

to see if I like the look.

Not liking the color….or shape…but the scale is ok.

So the Crate & Barrel one is 18-1/2 wide by 25 high. What are the dimensions of the one you hung?

You seem to have quite a good amount of space above the one you hung, I wonder if the larger one just hung higher might work.

I bought the huge drum shade pendant from C&B for my office conference room. When I got it, I thought it was ridiculously large but once I got it installed, it was perfect statement I wanted.

I'll keep an eye out for your shades,
and check around.
I know exactly what you're looking for.
Great space.

Thanks Rick! Steve....the one hanging is 18inches high. I thought hanging it higher may be too close to the ceiling. I s'pose I could order them and give them a try. They are the only decent priced ones I have seen...

I'm trying to find a ceiling lamp now over a dining table and can't find one. It seems they never are there when you need them. I have an old basket weave lampshade and they do significantly cut down on the light. Just fyi.

Merlyn.....Pretty dayum perfect!!

What a fun idea...sorry, I'm sorta out of the loop for good stuff hanging around...

Haven't seen but I really like that last one!
Hope you are well! Good luck Linda!
