My Chandeliers have arrived!

Well my Chandeliers have arrived and they are so wonderful I had to quickly try them out in the house. :D

This one is seriously divine and exactly the Gustavian look I want.


The detail is amazing.



 It is slightly on the large size. But I kind of like the drama of it. :)


I don't think it hangs too low for over a dining table.. What do you think?


 A bit more of a scale shot... It's large for sure, I prefer to call it grand. :)


And now to see if it works. TaDa! Let there be light!


 I do wish a little bit that the upper portion got some light or even had a little light in it, so that it lit up as well.. but


I'm not complaining because it makes me swoon when I look at this shot over the dining table.. :D 


Next up for testing is the cascade chandelier. This one is really gorgeous in real life. Sorry for the blurry photo, it was hard to photograph due to really short wiring and a chain that was larger than the my drilled hole. I had to mock it up by taping it to the ceiling, which kept giving away and then hold the power board in reach of the ridiculous wiring and try to take pictures with my other hand. Anyway, in this shot you can really see the detailing at the top. So beautiful


And lets light it up and try to take pics at the same time. A test of patience believe me!


This one gives off more light than the first. I have a little bend in the metal at the top there, I think I did than one of the multiple times it dropped during the futile photographing fiasco. :) I will attempt to bend it back into shape without breaking it.... on another day when I'm feeling like I could attempt a delicate task. Today is not that day.. :)

Again, it's really quite large and dramatic so I hung it a little higher and I like this better but I'm not sure it's beating out the first one, but it is great to have options though. :) 


Next I hung the Getzan. It's so pretty and delicate, really a lovely piece. But after the drama of the first two, I'm not sure it's "enough" for this room.


Having said that, with 5 bi-pin bulbs it gives off way more light than the other two which is nice. It may just be too delicate & pretty for this room.. I am feeling it for the bedroom though. I think it would be stunning as a bedroom fixture. :) 


 They are all so exquisite I'm spoilt for choice.

  2. Too many choices is a fortunate problem to have, especially when they are all so beautiful! Whichever one you settle on for the dining room, I know it will look perfect! As will the others in the other rooms! Looking forward to seeing them all!

  5. Hmm... is this what they mean by spoiled for choices? They're all gorgeous. And really the question is what do you like best for your room? The lower your lighting is the more intimate a feeling there is to the space.

    1. Good to know Sheila, I feel like dining room lighting should be lower than lighting in other rooms. But at the same time.. I don't want it to block the view into the rest of the room! Mini problems.. lol

  6. Wonderful, all three!!! I very much like the first one for this room, it's chic and indeed dramatic, love it! But that's my opinion, every single one looks great!

    1. Thank you! It is chic isn't it? I love the first one for this room I think. The Cascade, may end up in the living room.

  7. They are all fabulous! But I like number 1 for the dining room. The not lighted at the top part doesn't bother at all. And number 3 for the bedroom, definitely!

    1. I agree Megan, number 1 is definitely the dining room light. My problem now is these beautiful lights are going to make the other lighting in the house look terrible in comparison... Or maybe better like a good pair of shoes, lifts an outfit.. maybe.. lol

  10. Good Morning Sam, As you say all three are wonderful and if only you didn’t have three it would make the decision so much easier. The third does seem to suit a bedroom and the first the dining. Your table is large and can balance the light. I am delighted to see them hanging in your space.
    Looking forward to more developments.
    Regards Janine

    1. Thanks Kristine, I really love that first one too. It's worth spending a little more for quality fixtures I think. :)

  12. Stumbled into this by accident, but glad i did! I definitely vote for the first chandelier - not too big at all1 It's a dining room, right? You can always shorten the chain by drawing up some of the excess & hanging it on a hook right next to where the cord emerges from the ceiling - this is what I have seen in actual houses
