A Taste for Traditional Chandeliers

Indulging my love of history and tradition, this Design Story is dedicated to the timeless elegance of a crystal chandelier.

Delicate wall sconces and well placed candles create warm ambient lighting, while a magnificent chandelier illuminates this dining room in a soft, shimmering glow.

This opulent chandelier contrasts beautifully with the dark and dramatic wall colour.  It's generous scale perfectly balances the grand proportions of the marble dining table.

The sparkling chandelier is beautifully reflected in the mirrored surfaces, intensifying the romantic atmosphere in this chic and eclectic dining room.

This dining room is absolutely enchanting.  The glamorous chandelier, embellished with cascading white crystals, is a dazzling centerpiece in the space.

Creamy white walls and window treatments create a soothing backdrop for the striking silhouette of this chandelier's intricately scrolled, black frame.

The addition of small shades skillfully balance the light and dark elements in this dining room's rich and organic design scheme.

While there are many other available lighting options, I will always love the classic lines of a crystal chandelier, and the elegance it adds to a formal dining space. 

What type of chandelier appeals to your personal sense of style?
