It used to be an unspoken rule that the fixtures and decorative accents in your home had to be proportional to the size of the area, otherwise everything would look off balance. Now, in 2016, it is a trend to do just the opposite! Oversized fixtures that make a bold statement is the latest craze and can be utilized in any room that you desire. Making a design declaration is the new way to ground a room and pull the overall scheme together. It is understandable to be nervous about this trend, as it is so different from what we know, but we have tips to help you accomplish the look.
Large Chandeliers vs. Pendants
Chandeliers tend to work best in open spaces, like your entryway, hallway or an open concept room. They can add a spa-like ambiance to a bathroom as well, but not if the space is cramped. Two-tier chandeliers are elegant, eye-catching and the perfect way to pull off the oversized trend. Feiss Lighting has a beautiful nine-light two-tier chandelier in satin nickel with chrome accents that would complement any existing décor.
Large pendants are a better counterpart to spaces like your kitchen or dining area. You can have multiple hanging throughout or one in the center of the room, whichever works best for your space. A real attention grabber is the Alexandria pendant from Quoizel. The dangling glass accents shine against a Palladian bronze finish.
