Regardless of all the different types of lighting on the market, and there is a lot, I always find myself in trouble because chandeliers are one of my weaknesses. It is as if I fall into a deep urge to visualize and expect them to be in every room that I enter. I prefer to see more than one, and if there is only one, I question myself mentally, is their room for another? I laugh hysterically because this can be any place and at any time, whether I am in the country or while traveling in another country. However, I will say that with my travels outside of the United States, I understand why when designing most luxurious spaces, the choice is to incorporate pairing, and why it is a crucial element. I often find some great factors when pairing chandeliers. 

  •  The can add symmetry. 
  •  With correct placement, paired chandeliers can define a room from above and balance out the entire space. 
  • It makes for great design, and the overall design scheme more simplified, especially when trying to combine different types of lighting. 

The upside is that these beauties are unlimited as far as style, size, color, shape, texture, finish, and they can add character to any room. The downside is that the perception of paired chandeliers is not for everyone. However, I promise if the time is taken to change from one and opt for two, you will thank me – Promise!

Moreover, I cannot wait to do a post on designing with more than two Chandeliers, Yikes!! ;-)
