Chandelier of the Week – Raleigh

A well-proportioned chandelier is timeless, and our chandelier Raleigh is one of our perpetual favorites.

What makes it well-proportioned?  The best way to describe this quality in a chandelier is to say that it is well-balanced.  There are an even number of arms (6 lower and 6 upper) which makes a chandelier look good from every angle.  Frequently in decorating you hear that odd numbers of things look best, but for chandelier arms, we think the opposite is true.

Another trick that keeps the Raleigh chandelier in balance is the use of smaller bobeches (bowls) on the upper arms than what you see on the lower arms.  The tapered bottom with the final ball completes the harmony.

Having nothing to do with balance and everything to do with magnificence are the Swarovski trimmings on this beauty.  Incomparable brilliance is the best description for these pendants and strands.
