Picking a Ceiling Light for the Home Office

Last Friday I decided to revitalize my home office. You can view the design plan here, and I've since made some minor changes to the storage.

With this design board in mind, I am now ready to pick a ceiling light. I probably spend more time in this room than any others so it has to be very functional. Here are a few facts that prevent me from going wild on ideas.
  • Our second floor ceiling is only 8.5 feet, so pendant or ceiling mount is pretty much the only way to go without constantly bumping my head against it when I stand up.
  • The ceiling fixture has to be bright enough (but not glaring) and casts no shadow what-so-ever. Therefore, that rules out crystal, capiz shell, feather or any other funky chandeliers along the line.
  • Minimalism and industrial styles might work the best in a clean-lined workspace.
So here are a few options I am thinking. Which one(s) do you like the most?
A. Donut-shaped Glass Light
B. Ikea Brasa

C. Ikea Fillsta

D. Industrial Metal Pendant Light

E. Fabric Shade with Crystal Finial
In one of my previous posts I had mentioned that there'd be another giveaway by a local furniture company. It's still on but due to summer vacations and hence short of response, the furniture company has decided to postpone it until Sept/Oct time frame.
