Welcome to a new category in the Mad House. While I’m aware that you are all mad about design, I know that everyone’s budget differs wildly. As do priorities. Some of you will spend a lot of a light but would rather economise on the carpet. Some of you want an Ikea kitchen so you can spend a bit more on a sofa, or are happy to buy cheaper accessories so you can change them more often depending on your mood or the season. So with that in mind, I have decided to start a new weekly post called Boom/Bust.
Once a week, one object, different prices. That way you can, hopefully, see some of the things you like at different ends of the market and decide how you want to spend your money.
This week’s object is the brass pendant light. Brass is gradually taking over as the next metal of choice, although both copper and silver will be here for a while. You can also layer all three together as the next new trend that is creeping in is luxury.
Here are some that I have found depending on whether your finances are Boom or Bust.
The Original BTC Stanley pendant is made from solid brass, copper or nicker and comes in a hammered or smooth finish.
or this which might classify as either Boom or Bust depending on how far you are from payday and if you want those new shoes more…
or you can buy three to hang for the price of one of the above
So there you have it. Brass lighting Boom/Bust. Come back for another object of design next week. In the meantime which did you choose this week? Boom? or Bust?
While we’re on the subject, I should point out that I do this on a larger scale over at Mad About Your House; my personal shopping site where I can help you source items that you have pinned onto your moodboards but then been unable to track down. I make sure to always give you different options so that if you are planning a whole room you can easily get the look but decide how you want to spend your money.
