I am pretty traditional to the core, and always thought a dining room chandelier should be full of sparkles and grandeur. When I saw these pictures from Estate Lighting in New York, I knew I found the one.
This antique reproduction crystal chandelier is made of hand-cut Swarovski crystals like this. I always prefer French cut over teardrop-shaped crystals because they look more elegant and sophisticated. And I had to pinch myself when Estate Lighting told me I could choose either one at no additional cost! Usually French cut is a lot more expensive than teardrop.
So this is what the chandelier looks like in my dining room. It has a 30" diameter which is a lot more proportionate to the size of my dining room.
From another angle.
So now that lighting is taken care of, all I have left to do in my dining room is to add some vintage art and accessorize a bar table. Let's just say it continues to be a work-in-progress. Hopefully all can be done before Christmas.
Have a great weekend everyone!
