When 2 Chandeliers Are Better Than 1

If you have a long farmhouse dining table, a narrow room or a large expanse of space, you know how tough it is to locate a chandelier that’s appropriate in scale without overwhelming its setting. My suggestion: Just take another tack and try a pair of fixtures rather than a single one. Not only do they provide ample light, but they also produce a pleasing synergistic impact. Check out the double-take lighting in these spaces.

Chandeliers don’t need to match. Try a pair of classic models with similar scale and lines for an eclectic look.

The mirror in the end of the room expands the impact of the lighting fixtures, making them seem to stretch on and off.

Love not, there’s no denying that these over-the-top black stripes crown a daring room with sculptural dash and pull the high ceiling.

One long fixture might have looked too bulky in this particular kitchen. Instead, two separate ones hang side by side to break up the space.
