Chandeliers aren’t just for the dining room. Hanging a chandelier in a living room or great room is a great way to express your personal style.
“You can have a big, bold chandelier in a small room if you choose the right one. An all-glass or thin-frame chandelier is striking without taking up a lot of visual space.”

There are a lot of opinions about what height your chandelier should hang. Your chandelier is the focal point of your dining room. It should not be too high. If you often move the table and you are afraid people will hit their heads on the chandelier, don’t permanently raise the height of your chandelier. Simply pick up an inexpensive S-Hook or Chain Quick Link at Lowes or Home Depot. When you need it raised, just loop up the chain.

I broke my leg, so I have been laying around watching a lot of TiVo. The episode of Inspector Lewis Mysteries called Music to Die For shows Harco Loor Guirlande wall sconces and ceiling fixture in the entry.
Guirlande was designed by Harco Loor in 2002. The collection now includes hanging, ceiling, wall, table and floor lamps. They are made of polished or brushed stainless steel curled strips with 3 mm tubes and transparent or frost glass. The tubes can be twisted and stretched in every direction.
Harco Loor lighting is designed and made in the Netherlands.
