Affordable Elegant Farmhouse Lighting

This post contains affiliate links.

Our last house – a 1940 colonial in the city – was so classic that pretty traditional chandeliers felt right.  And while our new home is fairly traditional in construction, I feel like our acre+ in the hill country allows for a more rustic flair. And while necessity and common sense (aka Mr. Pax) will probably insist that we keep several of the current ceiling fans, I am definitely planning to replace some with some elegant farmhouse lighting.

But let me tell you, chandeliers can be so expensive!  And while I know “affordable” is relative, I’ve rounded up some gorgeous, elegant farmhouse-style chandeliers and pendants – all for under $300.  Do you think I could pull off one of these in our new home?  Which one is your favorite?  (Links are numbered below the image.)

Lighting can be so expensive! But these beautiful and affordable chandeliers and pendants are very reasonable and affordable options for a rustic yet elegant farmhouse style. |

    They all are beautiful but my favorites were 6 and 8. Have a great day Rachel.

  2. well.. looking at the architecture of your new abode, #1 and #4 satisfies the rustic and European flair that you so love.

  3. They’re all great choices, and I would imagine that when the time comes you’ll pick the perfect one:)

  4. I was initially drawn to #3. We are currently re decorating our entry way, and I am looking for new fixtures. We are having trouble because we the ceiling is too low to do pendants, but I am not a big fan of the flush mounted lighting I am finding. Thanks for posting some links to affordable lighting. It is hard to find inexpensive lighting! You have given me a few new places to check out. :)

  5. Hi Rachel
    I popped over from Rhoda’s. I noticed the no. 1 fixture is the one I chose for our new home, last Spring. It is absolutely perfect over our dining table. I paired it with a triple fixture above the island that is sort of industrial. In the same area there is an open style lantern over the coffee table. One reason I chose no. 1 is the barrel style and the fact it has mixed colors in the metals. We downsized to an open concept home and I wanted a blend of fixtures and metals. Our style is a mix of traditional, transitional, rustic elegance.

      I’m so glad to have you here, Pat! It sounds like you and I have very similar ideas. :) Our new home is much more open than our colonial was, and I’m thinking a similar balance. Thank you so much for the comment!

  6. #4 is not available online and hasn’t been for quite some time. Just FYI. I’ve been keeping my eye on it! 😉

  7. I love all the lighting choices you have. I bought a house a couple of years ago and I need to change out several light fixtures. I have a single income so I have to do projects in phases. I would love to know the website to get a few of them for my home in Georgia. I have always loved to decorate. Thanks for your post.

      I’m so glad you found it helpful, Melanie! If you click on the numbers below the image, you can find links to each of the lights and where they can be purchased online. I hope this helps!

  8. The link to number 7 doesn’t seem to be working. Would you mind listing the source? Thanks!

    • Rachel Paxton says:

      I’m so sorry, Britany! It is from Painted Fox. They recently changed their website to, and I have to go in and change all the links manually, unfortunately. Thank you for calling this one to my attention!

  9. Links for 3 and 6 don’t seem to be working. Source? Because I need these fixtures in my life 😉

    • Rachel Paxton says:

      Hi Elyse, I’m sorry, but 3 and 6 seem to be working for me. Maybe try them again? 3 is from Overstock, and 6 is from World Market. I hope this helps!
