On second thought, the IC might be the right pick. Didn't realize it came in a larger size.

Likely to go with the brass version, though the chrome is probably safer.

Will make some calls.

Is this true? I could have sworn that Foo indicated just a few months ago that they were not expecting.

If it is true, my sincere congratulations and best wishes. I look forward to the evolution of your white/cream color scheme.

Yes, I've replicated, though the new iteration is much smaller and female. Thank you for the congratulations!

On floor lamps: how tall?

Room height is 15 feet. Seating heights are all about 2.5 feet. Should we pick a 5-foot or 6-foot tall version of the same lamp?

Congrats, Foo. Kids are great. Soul-sucking vampires, but great.

15feet high ceiling? Did you move to the burbs and bought a house? Victorian?

No, converted industrial loft in downtown Manhattan.

Go with the 6 foot.

I was pleased with the fit and finish of my IC pendants, and the brass has a sandblasted finish, so fingerprints don't show too obviously.

I somehow missed all the baby talk - congratulations.

Thanks. I shouldn't worry about it dwarfing the furniture?

Your seat heights are 2.5 feet? 30"? What am I not understanding about that? My seats are around 16.5". My DR table is 29". 

 

Congrats.

I have no idea what your furniture looks like, but definitely the taller one, unless you have a specific situation you have to accommodate e.g. a huge artowrk on a wall and you don't want the globe obscuring anything.

I am pretty sure the 45" tall one is meant to be placed next to a table, or a recliner, to be used as a reading light of sorts. The design is very visually "light", if that makes any sense.

Do note that the actual entry opening for the bulb into the glass globe is quite small, precluding the use of LED bulbs. You will be restricted to the (provided) superbright halogen.

Bare brick walls?

2.5 feet at the back of the sofa, not at the cushion. Total height.

Brick walls are painted white.

You are right--I thought the shorter one was a bit taller. Now that I look, it is only 45" without the globe and 53" with. That is too low regardless.

The taller one, then.

Taller one is a nice choice.

A friend of mine bought the shorter glo-ball and it was very tough to find a spot for it where it did not look awkward, ended up swapping for the tall one and it was a plus.
