Best Seller in Crystal Chandeliers

We love this crystal chandelier in a more modern design with a slimmer profile for smaller spaces. Dazzling strands of beaded crystals lines the wrought iron frame that has been finished in a silver leaf. Shapely crystal drops and crystal swags completes the look. Four lights sit horizontally within the frame where they are mostly hidden from view. A slimmer profile at just 14" wide makes it perfect for smaller spaces such as hallways, small foyers, smaller dining, bathrooms and dressing rooms. Item C09634 at The Designer Insider shop.

Drapery: Rohu Lattice in Aqua - A viscose/poly blend that is perfect for draperies with the medium repeat. Comes in four colorways.
Trim: Winnowing in Coral - A 1.5" border tape that comes in 27 colorways.
Cushion: Fetra in Coral - A cotton/poly woven floral with medium repeat. Comes in three colorways.
