"Since this room is so rich with pattern, color and texture, we really needed an element that would ground the space beyond the area rug," says designer Kerrie Kelly. "This interesting statement light fixture truly brought the room together by using what we call the sixth wall — the ceiling — as our anchoring effect."
"When looking for the perfect chandelier, go with your gut. Don’t be afraid to go big and have the fixture almost serve as a piece of artwork to the design," Kerrie says.
Paired with white shiplap walls and a trio of simple windows providing a verdant view, this glass starburst fixture brings a contemporary touch to the cottage design, while adding dimension and a bit of sparkle.
In this high-ceilinged entryway, an antler chandelier pairs with the animal hide rug and other accents for a rustic-luxe look in the entryway of this modern ranch. The chandelier brings a natural touch and a ton of texture and eye appeal to the scene.
What gives this pretty pair of chandeliers their boho vibe? "The beads! Anything with beads reads bohemian to us," says designer Wendy Blackband. "The linked circles in the design of the chandelier are more contemporary, which make for a nice combination of styles in one piece. We also love the mix of gold and white finishes!"
"Light, scale and style are three important elements to be aware of" when selecting your ideal chandlier, says Wendy. One other thing? "Make it fun! There are so many cool chandeliers out there. Think of it as a piece of art and find the one that inspires you," Wendy says.
In this elegant and classic design, a pearl-laden chandelier works well with the neutral tones of the furnishings while adding a luxurious look. The exquisite coffered ceiling is the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous multi-light fixture.
"Surprise is one of the pillars of whimsy," says architect Alan Metcalfe. "This chandelier greets visitors as they walk through the front door of our clients’ colorful house."
"Its custom glass globes hang down into the stairwell from above. As you approach the staircase, on your way to the coat closet, the fixture reveals itself as a dramatic three-story string of glass balls," Alan says of this playful design.
Coupled with the graphic pattern on the trio of black-and-white barstools, the sparkling, shapely chandelier adds an opulent element, dynamic dimension and a touch of shine to this elegant art deco-influenced kitchen.
"These chandeliers are perfect for this modern cottage kitchen," says designer Jenni Leasia. "The primitive style adds texture and rustic warmth. The shape references a traditional formal chandelier in a funky, informal execution. They make a statement!"
A quick tip for hanging: "Keep it inside the room. We see a lot of chandeliers hung too high. The rule for hanging a chandelier above a table is 29 inches to 30 inches from the table top to the bottom of the fixture. This sometimes feels low to clients at first, but more often than not, it is perfect," Jenni says.
With soft elements like the tone-on-tone patterned carpeting and neutral furnishings, the bright pink shelving really pops. The chic, interlocked golden-ring chandelier brings in a touch of glamour and shine
In this dining room, the squared and scrollworked wrought-iron chandlier echoes the square shapes of the natural wood coffered ceiling, bringing an Old World, Mediterranean sense to this warm and inviting space.
"What we love about this chandelier is its weathered gold-leaf finish. Many crystals radiate character, creating a focal point for the space. It's a grand statement piece that is strong yet elegant," says designer Kim Scodro.
Teamed up with a gorgeous gilded table, this tiered antique chandelier takes center stage in a very luxe-looking space.
In this gorgeous open kitchen, a duo of industrial light fixtures work well to add a little edge to the clean, airy space. Teamed with the brick backsplash, black granite countertops and the vent hood, the complete effect is modern and wonderfully unique.
The classy, traditional furnishings and tranquil gray walls and curtains define this sophisticated master bedroom. A little romance is provided by the pretty round chandelier that's blooming with sparkling crystal flowers.
All-white surroundings in this minimalist dining room make the dark details really stand out. The spare, multi-cube chandelier is an artistic eye-catcher, making a stunning statement along with the swoop-legged dining table.
In this eclectic breakfast room, color is key. The gorgeous print on the Roman shade sets the tone for the room with the bright red leather banquette and breathtaking lapis-and-coral beaded chandelier, playing up the color scheme to perfection.
"The theatrical shape of this chandelier pulls the eye in more than one direction, allowing it to linger on the shape a bit longer," says Alana Villanueva of AVID Associates.
"Each crystal piece is hung individually, which adds an interesting detail as the strings 'disappear' into the ceiling. The crystals themselves allow any amount of light to be amplified, creating the enchanting wave suspended in this dining room."
Here, the black wrought-iron chandelier reads like a minimal, elongated lantern, both simple and elegant. The black dining chairs pair nicely with the statement lighting, balancing beautifully above and alongside the spare wooden table.
Even with a stunning view and beautiful art sculptures, this contemporary dining room's star is the large cylindrical chandelier hung above an intentionally simple round table and understated blue chairs.
In this bright, light-filled dining room, modern elements define the space with color, form and function. Combined with the sleek furniture, the decidedly modern decor makes the difference. Eye-catching artwork is placed just so to give prominence to the spectacular statement chandelier.
"This chandelier was the perfect fit for this beach house in Westport, Connecticut. Our client had a transitional style, and this fixture, while being organic in feel, still has a slightly modern edge," says Denise Davies of D2 Interieurs.
The most important thing when looking for a chandelier? "You have to love it since you'll be looking at it every day! Be aware of the amount of light it gives off for the type of room it is going in," Denise says.
