My Hicks pendant is hung! I can’t stop looking at it. It’s just perfect. I took some pictures to share, of course. But first I wanted to show a before picture. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture before the old fixture was removed (too much excitement). BUT, I did find an old picture with the old fixture in it. Please know that this picture was taken literally right after I moved in and it in no way reflects how my apartment looks on a regular basis. The old fixture is the little white spotlight in the upper left corner over the sink.
And here is the old fixture after the electrician took it down:
And the Hicks pendant! (this is what my apartment actually looks like on a regular basis)
Isn’t it gorgeous?
Guess what was delivered to me yesterday…
Would you believe I finally ordered my beloved Hicks pendant for myself???
I CANNOT wait to hang it in my kitchen. I’ll be sure to post a pic :)
For a while now I’ve considered these chandeliers my favorites. They are awesome. I don’t know what it is about this look (they all look very similar). I love them in Antique Brass, but I’ll take any finish, really. They are all manufactured by Visual Comfort and available through Circa Lighting or Mallory Mathison Inc. :)
Dauphine 4-Light Chandelier in Gilded Iron finish. So simple but so pretty! I usually don’t consider my taste to be modern.
Also available: Dauphine 8-light chandelier. Also available in Aged Iron.
Bryant Small Chandelier in Hand-Rubbed Antique Brass. This one is designed by Thomas O’Brien. The same designer who designed my beloved Hicks Pendant. Swoon.
The Bryant is also available in a larger size and a Bronze finish.
And possibly my favorite chandelier… the Vendome chandelier. Ahhh I love how feminine it is! Below is the small size in Antique Brass. It is also designed by Thomas O’Brien. I think he is my lighting god!?! I mean he is nailing it with his light fixture designs!
However, I’m not as big of a fan of the larger size Vendome…
And finally, my favorite little bitty chandelier. The Reed chandelier. I know you probably think these all look exactly alike. Well they do. But they ARE different :)
How cute is Reed?!
Good thing I don’t really have anywhere to put a chandelier… How would I chose!?!

I hate to point out the obvious, but Visual Comfort’s Hicks pendant light is perfection in the form of a light fixture. There’s no doubt that Thomas O’Brien is a genius for designing such an awesome piece. If I had a kitchen with an island, you can bet I would spend my savings on a pair of these gorgeous pendants. The only problem is that I would never be able to decide what finish! Antique Nickel, Polished Nickel, Antique Brass, OR Bronze with Brass!?! (I kind of think I would go with the Bronze with Brass). The fixtures are available through Circa lighting stores.
Please excuse the repetition of pictures from a previous post – they were necessary :)
