What Else to Think About When Buying Mid-Century Modern Chandeliers
Once you have the style of chandelier confirmed, you’ll want to focus on the shape, finish, and size of the mid-century modern chandelier to ensure it is the best fit for your space. Linear chandeliers are perfect above dining room tables or kitchen island countertops, while sputnik, globe, or traditional chandelier silhouettes are great for bedrooms, entryways, and entertainment spaces. Bronze and gold finishes are traditional for mid-century modern chandeliers but options can be found in black, brown, silver and more. Larger chandeliers are great for making a statement in a space and work well when high ceilings are involved. Smaller chandeliers can even be clustered together to create a dynamic lighting design that is all your own. Lastly, consider the number of lights your chandelier has and if that will be bright enough for your space. If you have plenty of accent lighting or recessed lighting, a chandelier with 1-5 bulbs will be plenty. For rooms in need of dramatic lighting or a singular lighting fixture, 5-12 lights should suffice.
