Redefining the Chandelier

When you visualize a chandelier what comes to mind? Maybe it’s the classic version, an enormous wrought iron creation dripping with crystals and brilliantly lit. For centuries, these ornate designs have been a status symbol of the wealthy and for good reason.

While these fixtures fit beautifully with many styles, a new wave of modern chandeliers is bringing a less fussy, more straightforward approach to the classic look. Chandelier lighting works brilliantly in most any room of the house. Place one in the entry for big impact or above a contemporary dining set.
