Regardless of the different types of lighting on the market, and there is a lot, I find myself in trouble when it comes to chandeliers because they are one of my weaknesses. It is as if I fall into a deep fixation when I enter a room because I expect to see two instead of one. However, this is only if space allows. If I only see one, then I question myself mentally, why am I not seeing another spectacular piece of jewelry hanging? Whether I am traveling national or international, my hunt for how chandeliers are used in a room is an obsession. 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 tends to be a crucial element. I often find some unique styling ideas when pairing chandeliers.

  • Two chandelier can can add symmetry.

  • With correct placement, two 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, and finish. They can add character to any room. The downside is that the perception of two chandeliers is not for everyone. Moreover, if space allows, I promise if the time is taken to change from one and opt for two, you will thank me – Promise!

I cannot wait to do a post on designing with more than two Chandeliers.
