How High Should My Chandelier Hang?

hookThere 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.

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.

Harco Loor Guirland Long Wall Light WL 10

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.
