When it comes to putting the perfect outfit together, it usually goes something like this: You choose the clothes, add some shoes, select a gorgeous bag and then finish it off with beautiful accessories. Whether it’s a classic single strand of pearls, an armful of mixed metal bangles or an eye-catching pair of statement earrings, jewelry is the finishing touch that every outfit needs.
“Dressing” your room is a very similar process. You start by selecting the furniture, layering in a rug and adding in whimsical, personal items like art, throw pillows and cocktail table books. But your room isn’t quite finished yet! Just like your outfit needs jewelry, your room needs that perfect finishing touch too.
Chandeliers are like jewelry for your room and it often doesn’t feel complete without them. It adds a beautiful focal point to the space. And whether you like the classic tiered chandelier or something more modern, a chandelier is the perfect way to finish off your room.
The orb chandelier has an almost-starburst like effect. It’s perfect for a dining room where the light fixture is the focal point of the room. We love the detailing in this agate burst chandelier and the natural wood elements in the finch chandelier.
This version of the traditional tiered shape uses beautiful beading instead of crystals. These are gorgeous in any room, but look especially lovely in a casually chic space. The traditional silhouette paired with stone beading takes this style to a modern and chic level without being overly fussy. We love the unexpected white beads in this Jacqueline two tier chandelier and the antique brass finish on this Maxim chandelier.
Geometric lanterns work really well in pairs. When a room needs great lighting but you don’t want to overpower the space, pair several geometric lanterns together. Their open structure brings lots of character to a room and you can hang several of these together without it feeling too busy. A pair of these modernly elegant Kate Spade chandeliers or Darlana large lanterns would be perfect over a kitchen island.
We love these mid-century modern chandeliers infused with brass, glass and linear forms. This Kelly Wearstler chandelier is making me swoon…give me lots of glass globes with brass accents! These quintessential mid-century forms pair beautifully with any style and they always give off lots of light! We love the slightly industrial feel this bistro four arm chandelier has.
I love using avant-garde lighting in unexpected places, especially with pieces that are so unique like these dark, industrial chandeliers. Place this Luciole chandelier over a breakfast table or this Harding chandelier in a stairway for a unique conversation starter.
Chandeliers aren’t just for formal dining rooms anymore. Whether you use them in a hallway, the kitchen or a seating room, these gorgeous fixtures are functional and beautiful at the same time. They add just the right amount of light to the room and are definitely conversation starters. For more chandelier ideas and design tips, follow us on Instagram on Pinterest.
