Designing with Dramatic Chandeliers
Lighting changes everything in a room, bringing out the colors in upholstery and making hardware and wood shine. Getting creative with your lighting can change the whole feeling of a room, and what better than a chandelier to accomplish that. Chandeliers are essentially illuminated sculptures, effectively functioning as a work of art in the space. They can add some color, some sparkle, and even can set the tone for a room. The possibilities are endless. Below are two examples of how I have used chandeliers in two very different contexts and two examples of how other designers have done the same. You can see what a large influence each chandelier has on the overall feeling of the room, even to the point of setting its tone.
