Foyer lighting choice

Janet CarmichaelDecember 28, 2012
Would love some suggestions for some lighting here. This brass nasty has to go! I get overwhelmed when I look at options unsure of how tall the item should be. I'm not a big fan of candelabra type lighting so I want to go with something interesting but not crazy! The outside of the house is very traditional. I'm in the process of changing the inside less traditional by having it a bit more cozy with an edge...if that makes sense. Thanks in advance to this great community!

I think I posted the same picture twice. Here's an alternative view.

The size of the fixture is perfect for the space but I agree it is out of style and difficult to clean I imagine, if you don't like the candelabra type chandeliers there are still plenty of options, I wouldn't go super contemporary but maybe something like these.

Maybe it's just the photos but the foyer looks a bit dark even with the lights on. Here is one example with a bit more sparkle and elegance.

Frank, I liked the first one on the left. I went to your website to search some more but I couldn't get photos - are they not available? Is it my browser perhaps? Also, what would be the very best way to search your site?

Dytecture, thank you for the suggestion but I think it has too much elegance for where I'm trying to head. My house was very formal, aka not really comfortable and I'm moving away from that. I know that elegance can be comfy, don't get me wrong.

The light on the left is model # AC3006 and is made by Artcraft lighting, I am not sure if it is on our website, www.frankwebb.com, we are in the process of updating it but we stock it here in our Waterbury, Ct showroom and I can ship anywhere!
