If you're looking for an elegant chandelier, then Ethan Allen is a great store to consider. Ethan Allen carries a wide selection of brass chandeliers, crystal chandeliers, iron chandeliers, and more in nickel and wood. These chandeliers feature different amounts of lights - some utilize 12 lights whereas others utilize 6, 8, 10 etc... The amount of lights will definitely define the styling o the piece. If you want a petite and smaller chandelier, then you should probably go for something that doesn't have quite as many lights, however if you want a very grand piece that definitely would make a statement, then bigger is certainly better.
Some of these chandeliers can be used with shades, however most of them are used plain. If the piece is used with shades then you always have the option of changing them in the future too, if you would like to mix it up a bit. Any one of these Ethan Allen chandeliers would be ideal if you want to add an elegant touch to a dining room, living room, or why not bedroom. It's amazing what a difference it can make to add great lighting to a room and with a chandelier you get the practical side of the picture, however you also get tons of character and style which can transform a room, create a focal point, and simply make the space nicer to be in.
You can of course find chandeliers like these at many different stores. If you're on a budget, then it could be worth it to check out IKEA since they have some nice options. However, if you want something even richer and less modern, and you don't mind spending a little more, then you simply could not go wrong with Ethan Allen.
