Nothing adds instant drama to a space quite like a chandelier. But if you're anything like me, the word tends to draw up mental images of stuffy decor and overly-ornate crystal. With the gorgeous range of more minimal, modern designs out there, this definitely doesn't have to be the case. Apartment Therapy Marketplace has a bunch of beautiful chandeliers in stock, but these modern finds stood out from the pack.
Splurge: Paul Ferrante Chandelier
Part light fixture and part art installation, this beautiful alabaster and brass chandelier was built to have a room designed around it. The bold connected lines are definitely a contemporary design element, but the ornate base is a nod to more traditional spaces. So if you're looking to make an investment in something guaranteed to be the focal point of your home, chances are this piece can satisfy a range of style preferences.
Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $5,000.
Looking for all of the drama at a lower price point? Originally $2,700, this statement chandelier from Design Within Reach is listed on Marketplace for almost HALF off.

Do you have our permission to spend some of the money you saved on extra food and accessories for entertaining? Absolutely.
