Help with Chandelier

Cindy SilvaDecember 29, 2012
Mediterranean style home in south east Florida. Need your help selecting a light fixture that would work in the Livingroom. It is a large room with lots of light during the day and very high ceilings.

This is the area where my main office is. A large iron at least two tiers. Make sure you add shades if it doesn't come with them. If you could pop over to Naples after the 6th of Jan. I can take you to my lighting guy and find the perfect one. Good luck.

Match the finish on the railings and make sure it is large in scale to work in this space. I suggest a large lantern style in a dark finish such as this Robert Abbey lantern.

We need to know more about your style. Yes you could do wrought iron, either as a chandelier or as a lantern, but that's not very imaginative. Do you want something original? Maybe something that might be a modern contrast? There are so many different ways to go, and the budget can be quite stretched by these extra large fixtures. More information about what you expect would be quite helpful.

Your space is more Spanish/western Mediterranean than Italian or Greek. You have black iron with medium wood accent for your banister/railings. I think you can take the black iron and the Spanish influence and really run with it!

The Spanish style pulls heavily from Moorish/Arabic styling. You can have clean lines which are heavily decorated (punched steel plating) which can give a strong presence without overwhelming the simplicity of the space.

Here is something I found on Alibaba:

Your space is gorgeous and I think an extra large modern chandelier would be stunning. Something more of an art piece is what I'd go for with your high ceilings! Something on a grander scale too, as your space can handle it. Search houzz - lots of ideas.

Good luck!

Wow! Thank you for all the feedback. We really like the Spanish/Mediterranean style... Clean lines, wrought iron, dark woods, then the right splash of color. What do you think about this chandelier from Restouration Hardware? It's big @ 40 1/2" wide by 43" high. I also included another picture of the room with better light.

I like your choice of chandy but I don't think it is dramatic or "bulky" enough for your fab space.

You are on the right path with the Retoration Chandeiier. The one pictured may not be heavy enough. And I would pass on the iron. Unless it is antique. I am not seeing Mediterranean interior.

This chandy made of wine barrel staves in a two-tiered version would look wonderful!

The chandelier from Restoration Hardware would look awesome in your space. I have seen that chandelier in person, and the picture doesn't do it justice. Great choice!

I DO like the Restoration Hardware choice. It's worth giving it a try in the space to see if it works for you.

If haven't mentioned the budget and since the RH one is quite expensive, I found this option also: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Foucaults-Orb-Crystal-Iron-6-Light-Chandelier/6908228/product.html?AID=10654383&PID=4003003&SID=crmp3u7e3twp
