Happy Monday, friends! I'm still chipping away at this office space and wanting to fill you in on the progress. On our recent trip to Chicago, I stopped in at IKEA and purchased a few things, including this large black JARA Shade. It was already inexpensive ($29.99), but it was also on sale the day I was there ($22). SOLD!
I knew I wanted a large light fixture in the office space since the ceiling is high. I thought the black would be a good contrast to the light walls and carpet and trim. This shade is 22" in diameter, so it is huge!
Once we were home, I went looking for light kits at Lowe's and found this inexpensive black pendant light cord for $16.
Steve was able to wire this baby up for me in no time and I love how it looks! The only debate was how low to hang it. Because it is large, and my husband is so tall, we had to eyeball it until we thought it was the right length.
I was nervous that the light would look yellowish coming off the black shade. We used a 60W Reveal light bulb and it actually puts off a bright white light, which I am so happy about.
Loving the bold statement this shade makes in the room! And for less than $40, the price was right too!
