The Chandelier finally arrived yesterday. WE LOVE IT! It's very sophisticated and romantic. I love straight drum shade. It's so modern, and a little bit curve makes it even more elegant. The chandelier inside is so gorgeous with the tear shaped crystals and flowers as details. The shiny chrome finish goes great with the sparkly clear crystals and creamy white shade. We have been looking for a traditional chandelier with modern twist for 4 years. THIS IS IT! Perfect size, and just as we imagined. It proves patience does pay off. Now we don't have to stare at that ugly builder grade $40 chandelier any more. Bye-bye ugly, and Hello gorgeous!
And look how perfect it matches our floor lamp in the living room! We found it several months ago at our local TJMaxx & Home Goods. Same straight drum shade, shiny chrome finish, plus some sparkly glass balls. We didn't even plan this, they just matched, without the matchy-matchy feeling. Guess this is our taste for now.
Just to show you how big the difference is, here is a picture of the old chandelier. It was that awful golden color I hated, so I spray painted it silver when we moved in.
