I'm looking for a chandelier for the parlor in my late 19th-C Brooklyn brownstone apartment and could really use some input. The room has 14' ceilings, a plaster medallion, and triple crown moldings--it's the kind of space that demands something very large and dramatic.
I'd consider both antique and ultra-modern options, though I'm beginning to suspect that there's no way I'll be able to afford the former (the last period chandelier I saw that fit the bill cost $25K!!). Any suggestions?
Dear Megan, for something large and dramatic we would look for antique or used and these are places you can look:
Olde Goode Things
or any of these Vintage stores in our Guide
For big and splashy, you should also check out
Williams Sonoma Home
or Modernica for a BIG Nelson pendant.
