If the word chandelier once conjured up images of grand ballrooms and opulent shimmering crystal, modern chandeliers have dispelled those notions beautifully. Anything but traditional, our collection of chandeliers includes designs made from wood, plastic, and even paper—in addition to various types of glass and lighting types such as LED. Substantially sized and meant to be attention getters, chandeliers are the very definition of statement lighting—and, because of their larger size, present design challenges of their own.
Whether perfectly suited or ill-chosen, a modern chandelier, which is typically larger than most modern lighting designs, naturally has a more significant impact on a room than other types of smaller scale modern lighting—so choosing the right modern chandelier for a room or space demands particularly thoughtful consideration. Before you go shopping for contemporary chandeliers, review the following questions and information to arrive at the best chandelier lighting solution for your home.
