Multiple chandeliers, such as oversize Chinese lanterns, are clustered for maximum effect.
This striking hallway, with a row of Chinese lantern chandeliers, is a teaser for the rest of this 550 square foot Harlem apartment. Dark wood floors anchor the space and painted vertical stripes accent the walls. Large scale artwork pulls out the tiny stripe of pink that is dramatically used throughout the apartment. A total of eight oversized Chinese lanterns, a mere six dollars apiece, are a simple element that lead guests toward the main living area. A single lantern hangs in the master bedroom, a repeat that enforces harmony in the home.
A custom table, with bronze center insert for floral arrangements, is paired with comfortable leather armchairs. This dramatic piece is overshadowed by the cluster of exquisite silk pendant lights, seemingly floating in air. The scale of both pieces relate well to each other and to the space, but it is clear which is the emphasis in the room.
Elegant meets rustic when a cluster of crystal chandeliers is used over reclaimed wood furniture in this NYC Chelsea district loft. A single crystal chandelier would have been visually unequal in weight to the substantial table due to its transparency and reflective surfaces. Using three equalizes the balance and creates a satisfying arrangement.
