Why hang one vintage glass pendant light when you can hang fifty lights. Maybe that’s an exaggeration but long gone are the days of hanging just one light. One chandelier over the dining table. No way. One pendant over the kitchen island. I don’t think so. Tables, bar counters and kitchen islands are all being made over sized to accommodate the new extended family. Step parents, step children, in-laws, ex’s and even soon to be ex’s are all part of today’s modern family. Not be confused with the popular TV sitcom series Modern Family. But it’s true. We are becoming more tolerant of the sometimes confusing but new relationships of the traditional family. And not necessarily by choice. It may have been forced on us to lead a happier and I believe a healthier life. Hold a grudge. Not me. Now where was I. Yes, the vintage glass pendant light.
Vintage Glass Pendant Light
This lights were inspired by a vintage mortar and pestle used by pharmacists back in the day. Medicine was not shipped into Walgreens in capsule form. Instead, pharmacists were required to mix the medicinal concoctions themselves. And they used the mortar and pestle to grind the ingredients together. We did away with the bowl but kept the pestle. It’s now wired to hang from the ceiling and illuminate the table, counter or floor below. Hang a row of these pendants over the bar counter or group them together over the formal dining room table. Either way, the extended family will pay attention to these lights. If anything, they might divert the conversation from going in the wrong direction. Not that unlikely. Hey, where did you get that vintage glass pendant light. Lights out.
