Having Fun With Lighting: 6 Cool Pendant Lamps Under $350

Let there be light!  ... And let it add more than just function.  Nothing adds to the mood of a room like the lighting.  When we first moved into our condo, we spent some time online looking for some vintage bargains.  The photos of our own fixtures were taken by the talented Thea Menagh.  We ended up finding a fun, retro smoked glass pendant for our dining room (bottom left,) an oversized industrial pendant for the bedroom with lots of patina (top left) and a funky chrome sputnik-style light for the living room (bottom right.)  While they all needed some TLC (and in some cases re-wiring,) I think each one was under $100.  For those who prefer a newer look or who shy away from DIY projects, I have compiled a list of fun pendants which will add a playful touch to any room.  Read about them after the jump:

1.  Glass Jar Pendants $104.00 from West Elm

2.  Pendant Barn Lamp $315.00 from Design Within Reach

3.  Flok Pendant Lamp $279.00 from CB2

4.  FLY Suspension Lamp by Kartell.  $310.00 on Amazon.com (I also see these on Craigslist from time to time)

5.  Galaxy Pendant $279.00 from Structube

6.  Polished Concrete "Martini Pendant" Hanging Light $195.00 by atstuart on Etsy.com

What do you think?  Do you prefer homemade, vintage, modern or perhaps something more traditional?
