Midcentury modern is (always has been?) hot right now (or for the last 70 years??). Some of the most classic designs in American interiors are from that era. And adding a midcentury style light fixture to your living space could be just what you need to get that ‘pop’. Here are my top five affordable midcentury modern hanging light fixtures (under $200!!) guaranteed to add that extra vavooom your house needs, without the price tag.
The Everett 10 Light Chandelier $147 – This one I love (I have it in my own home) because it packs a lot of punch and light into a single fixture. The height is adjustable and it is not terribly heavy so it’s easy to hang. And it’s under $150, which for a dining room piece is pretty darn good if you ask me.
Conical Coffee House Light from Beautiful Halo $125 – What I love about this light is how clean and simple it is. It would work well over a counter top or a dining table. It’s also available in various voltages. It’s white and gives a soft light but bright enough to eat by. Could definitely work well with a ton of different room styles — from midmod to farmhouse.

Carson Carrington Allerford Midcentury Modern Brass Pendant Lights (set of 2) $173 – First, I love that you can get a set of two for under $200, but also that they’re very cool. At 14″ long the pendants are substantial enough to anchor a dining room or a large kitchen island. I think you could also successfully mix these in a kitchen with black or chrome hardware.
Jupiter Pendant Lamp from Article $179 – Ok it’s not a classic midcentury light, but this fixture is still very modern and stylish and a perfect accent to many styles, like most midcentury light fixtures. It’s clean lines and open design would be delightful over a kitchen breakfast table.
Makenna Glass Globe Pendant from Pottery Barn $89 – Go with brass, go with chrome, or go with black, you can’t go wrong with this classic quality pendant from Pottery Barn. It literally works anywhere and that’s why you see them everywhere! Easy to install and gorgeous from bedrooms to kitchens to offices.
