Decisions

I need some help, dear reader. We are choosing between these two lights from IKEA to hang over the kitchen counter and wer're having some trouble making a decision.

Foto pendant

Ottava pendant
They'll be hanging near the dining table pendant lights ( my beloved Nelson criss cross saucer lamps) so, whilst they don't need to match, they do need to sit well together.
Criss Cross saucer
 So, what do you think?

I'm keen on Ottava. I like the screws.
Foto is sleeker, though.

Aren't I helpful?

you've described our thought process perfectly, bb.
Both lovely but I like No 1.

I like the Foto best

My vote is for the foto. I think it's a better fit with it's cleaner lines.

The last one. You won't have the naked bulb glaring at you directly. (Something I wish I had've thought of...)

I prefer the ottava BUT the Foto sits better with the Criss Cross I think.

I think the foto. the saucer lamp is so striking, I think the Ottava is too busy next to it . just my humble opinion!

I'm with the consensus. I prefer the Ottava but reckon the Foto goes better with the saucer.
Foto. Without a doubt. Think about how grimy it will get and how hard it'd be to clean the one with screws.

What Kim said. The first thing I thought was I love the second one but the first one will be easier to wipe clean.

Both are gorgeous though.

oh dear, that was me, Suse, not Sues. Can't spell my own name.

I'm late, but I like ottava. For my tastes, foto looks too much like surgical lighting. If you are short, you won't notice the dirty screws.
