How epic of a role do chandeliers play in our lives? Consider this: The longest-running musical in Broadway history – The Phantom of the Opera – is centered around the replacement of a chandelier. (Well, that and the tortured “ghost” who haunts the Paris opera house, but let’s focus on the lamp!) A great chandelier can be the focus of any formal room. They illuminate. They decorate. And – when well chosen – they can be the very center of attention.
Here are a few chandeliers we think you should let light up your homes.
We love this chandelier for the dining room or front entryway. The two-tone design is a combination of vintage industrial and rustic farmhouse. (Can we dub that “Indy-Farm?”) It’s adaptable to any space in your house thanks to the adjustable chain mounting system.
This is the perfect sized chandelier for a hallway, balcony or small room. It has a chrome finish and is easy to install. Best of all, it gives any space some much-needed glam.
The purchasers of this chandelier can’t praise it enough, raving on how glamorous it looks. (“Absolutely perfect, stunning piece of art,” one person wrote.) It has the classic good looks that are timeless.
If this looks like it’s straight from outer space, well, that’s the point. This “Sputnik” chandelier will no doubt be the talk piece of your home’s furnishings thanks to its decidedly industrial look. Thankfully, it’s easy to install and is compatible with a dimmer switch and bulbs.
This fixture’s design just explodes outward. This modern chandelier features stainless steel construction and LED lights.
