There's just something about a chandelier that can make any room look and feel instantly poetic. I love them, and I love that there's an unending variety of them to choose from.
I'm mostly drawn to feminine/antique/semi-ornate ones, especially in really clean, almost cold spaces. But the other way around -- something funky or plain hanging in the midst of vintage surroundings -- is perfecto, too.
Translation -- any form will do. And with the right one, a room needs little else. If anything else at all.
