No matter which look you choose, a chandelier will be a welcome addition. Long an integral part of traditional dining rooms, there are now a multitude of contemporary designers who create chandeliers for every style and space in the home. A well-chosen chandelier can even bring competing styles together. Whether you’re trying to balance rustic and contemporary or French and contemporary, a chandelier is a great way to make a cohesive statement. Follow our guide to pick your home’s next statement.
Constance Guisset’s vertigo lamp
The Vertigo lamp is the perfect addition to any home that is looking for a modern yet lively chandelier. The device is similar to a mobile phone, and because of its lightness, the device also looks like one due to small drafts.

Jonathan Adler Sputnik chandelier
This lamp by Jonathan Adler is exactly what you would expect from a designer: bright, colorful, fun and very modern. We placed it in a home office redesign in New Jersey to complement the contemporary, preppy and bold sensibility of our customers.
The linden chandelier
The brass lamp was designed by Charles de Lisle for The Future Perfect and is certainly not a traditional chandelier. This bold, geometric, and exquisite chandelier is a welcome addition to any ultra-modern home.
Picture perfect about the future.
Lindsay Adelman’s 9 Globe Branching Bubble
Check out the Lindsay Adelman chandelier we installed on this SoHo duplex renovation to get something a little more subdued yet modern. The wine-like structure with bulbous lights is reminiscent of a branch and yet fits into a contemporary urban environment.
For a lamp with a rustic-modern feel, we recommend the Odyssey 4 Chandelier from Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. The brass finish is sophisticated, while the exposed bulbs are an ode to more traditional lighting.

Bakalowits & Sons
If you want to add a second chandelier to your home, consider adding one in the living room. This glittering, Art Deco inspired chandelier was the perfect addition to our brownstone redesign in Manhattan precisely because it spoke to more traditional and modern elements in the living room.
Apparatus Studio’s cloud
As one of our personal favorites, this playful, modern lamp is anything but sterile. And the milk glass balls put you in a good mood.

Gino Sarfatti’s model 2097 for Flos
For a more traditional light fixture, check out the two chandeliers we installed during this renovation of your Greenwich home. A large number of smaller light bulbs ensure even light distribution in the room, which creates a warm, inviting atmosphere in this modern house.
Jeff Zimmerman’s Vine
This sculptural chandelier designed by Jeff Zimmerman is a wonderful way to balance the modern and the natural. The hand-blown lightbulbs and brass structures are very contemporary, while the weave structure lives up to the namesake of this piece.
