My Search for a Modern Chandelier

I have chandeliers on the mind lately… not the stuffy, crystal one of your grandma’s era, but a modern chandelier. Our new house has an epically tall ceiling (15 feet!) which means I can finally make my dreams of dramatic dining room lighting come true. While I don’t have a peek of the space to show you yet, you know me and know what I can’t help but plan ahead and daydream about the space… so I started perusing some of my favorite lighting sources for inspiration. What I found was just too good to keep to myself! In case you’re on the hunt for a modern chandelier, here are a few really, really good ones that I found!

Glass & Crystal

In my mind, a crystal chandelier is a very traditional light fixture… and tends to have a specific look. While working on this round up, I was pleased to see that there are way more modern glass chandeliers now — so many pretty options! I love the look of a mostly glass chandelier because then you really get to maximize the light and glow.

Black

We all know that I love a black light fixture! And it’s no different when it comes to my search for a modern chandelier. Our dining room’s ceiling is made of logs and exposed wood, so an architectural black light fixture just might be the way to go!

Brass

Brass chandeliers will always have a special place in my heart — it’s just such a classic finish for any light fixture.
