In New York, we are always on The Hunt. Whether it be for the perfect apartment, that great new restaurant, the fashion must have of the moment or the ideal mate, New Yorkers are simply never satisfied. So as a woman and a New Yorker— hunting is like breathing, I have to do it to survive. In this section of 40 Winks A Day, we’ll explore the hunt for great style without breaking the bank. One day we may be hunting for that perfect cocktail party dress, the next we may be hunting for the best fireplace style electric heaters— random I know, but oh so fun.

Therefore in the spirit of The Hunt, I present to you my first great find….


This drop pendent lamp came curiosity of my future in-laws as a housewarming gift. When we first moved in 2 months ago, there was just a 60watt light bulb screwed into a standard light socket. Over the holidays we mentioned to my fiancee’s parents that we were on the hunt for a nice light fixture to hang in the space over the dining room table. Well, we were delighted to receive this little beauty a few weeks ago when they came to town on a visit. My handy dandy future father in-law not only installed it, but also put the light on a dimmer, something that would never have occurred to us to do. The light is big, bold and stylish, which is exactly what I was looking for.


You can find the lamp at Costco for around $80.
