Eight light Chandelier

Eight light Chandelier


An attractive French empire crystal chandelier, it features an openwork design that allows for its eight bulbs to create the most stunning illumination. Available in round cut and elegant crystal types, it is framed in metal with a polished finish.

Designer Advice:

A great pick for transitional, traditional, and contemporary interiors with a twist of glam. We recommend installing this in the sitting room, on top of a round dining table, or in your den. For a coordinated look, we suggest opting for fixtures that have the same round crystal aesthetic when illuminating other bedrooms. These can be droplights or even surface-mounted ceiling lamps.

Buying Guide

You can hang a crystal chandelier anywhere; however, traditionally, it is placed either over a dining room table, in a large bedroom, or above a staircase or entryway. Be sure you have a high enough ceiling wherever you place it, so it hangs down at the proper level. This will be somewhere between 30” to 32” above a piece of furniture.

The most obvious placement of a traditionally crafted or french empire crystal chandelier is in a formal dining room. Here it adds a touch of elegance to the room permitted it matches the design style and decor surrounding it.

Another popular place for a crystal chandelier is in an entryway or within a stairwell, where it becomes a showcase feature of the home and is inviting to guests and residents. Also, consider hanging one in a bedroom for additional ambiance and romance.

Those who prefer a non-traditional look can hang these chandeliers in more offbeat locations such as living rooms or home libraries.

The easiest way to clean a French Empire crystal chandelier is to rig up a ladder or scaffold (there are also ingenious lowering devices, but they need to be installed when you put in the light fixture) and dust each piece of crystal, clean it with a glass cleaner, and polish it as a final step.

The hotter the water, the fewer spots on the individual pieces of crystal. It’s also a wise tactic to clean your French Empire crystal chandelier starting early in the morning on a sunny day so that the elements can air dry quickly.

To prevent any crystal pieces from dropping and shattering, roll out a thick blanket or comforter underneath your work area. Work from the top-down and from the inside out to clean your French Empire crystal chandelier.
