Current Obsession: Lantern Chandeliers

Our house is coming along!  We are hoping to move in this summer.  We are almost to the finishing stage, where everything starts to come together.  I want the house to have a comfortable, industrial farmhouse feel, with lots of different materials and finishes, used in a simple functional way.

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect dining room chandelier.  Our dining room has a beautiful view that the chandelier must not block, but the chandelier must be substantial enough to work with a large farmhouse table.  And it all must be easy to clean – no glass to keep clean or shiny parts to polish.

I’m currently obsessed with  chandeliers, also called box frame lights, or open frame chandeliers, or linear chandeliers.

Gabby Arnold Chandelier 

Here’s my picks –

1. Great Room Greatness

For a large great room, the Gabby Arnold Chandelier measures 32″ x 32″ wide.  It’s square shape will ground a square great room and the tapered top frame will accent vaulted ceilings.  With eight bulbs, it will add sufficient light.  $573 from Layla Grace.
