Friday Favorites – Crystal Drum Chandeliers

Happy Friday friends!  Welcome back to my Friday Favorites series.  This week,  I am featuring my favorite crystal drum chandeliers.  When we remodeled our dining room after we bought our home, I decided to think outside of the box with regard to how I was going to design the lighting.   Our dining room sits on the front of our home, so I wanted to feature something dramatic as it would be seen from the street as neighbors and guest drive by.

We were fortunate to have acquired a sizeable dining room that presented a clean slate for me to work with (shown below).  It already had four spot recessed lights in the corners of the room and then one chandelier with two recessed cans.  Sorry for the quality of this photo.  I had no idea I would start blogging when we bought our home!!  I got this picture from the online “brochure”.

That was then…this is now…

Knowing that I could use a really long dining room table in the room, I decided that one chandelier could look a bit whimpy with a 10-foot dining room table with large chairs.  So, I decided to use three smaller chandeliers rather than just one.  I have gotten so many compliments on them so I decided to share with you similar options to the ones I currently have as mine are not available anymore.

Funny story…I have a precious neighbor that calls me when she has guests coming over to ask me to turn them on so her friends can see them when they drive by.  True story!!  They certainly do provide a bit of drama.  When I was planning our dining room space, I wanted to create a casual, comfortable space to enjoy during long meals with family and friends, but my “fancy” side desired to have a bit of glamour in the space.  The new chandeliers I chose had a contemporary shape while still evoking elegant style.  Besides, who doesn’t love just a bit of sparkle?!

Here are a few shots of them “in use” during a few special occasions in our home.

I love how they create a canopy of lighting over the table!

My favorite thing about them is how they reflect in the mirror!

In the evenings, I turn them down to create this lovely ambient lighting.

These selections include all sorts of styles and prices.  They can all obviously be used in other areas of your home and would certainly add a little glitz to areas that might need a little lift.

                      

      

Here are a few other examples of great ways to use this style of chandelier…

    I don’t see the chandelier in any of the options or link. Are they still available?

      Hi Diantha! Unfortunately, they are not available anymore which is why I shared these other options that are similar in style. I bought them over four years ago. 🙁 Thank you for asking though and for stopping by!

    Hi there! I’m actually in the Market for a new light fixture for my guest room. You’ve given me a lot to think about.

    The drum chandeliers are beautiful! I love the way they reflect in the mirror too. Pure elegance.
