Hi all! I’m Jennifer and I write for Arcadian Lighting, a site that chronicles top interior designers and lighting trends around the world. I've been writing about home decor since graduating university and have loved it ever since. I'm addicted to patterned fabrics, Jonathan Adler, chaise lounges, old doors, milk glass jars, and antiques. I'm also a sucker for chandeliers. Fashion and style prevail at Ashley Nicole Catherine, and all of her fab posts get my creative inner-fashionista juices flowing -- so you can imagine my delight when I found out that I would be providing a guest post for this luxe blog on glamorous chandeliers.

There's one type of light fixture that can be both traditional and modern, has existed for centuries as the height of elegance and today comes in a dazzling array of styles and looks: it's the chandelier. Dripping in crystals and fashioned out of cut glass, this ceiling light is the epitome of sophistication. Here are eight glamorous chandeliers.

A contemporary twist

This streamlined minimalist kitchen calls for a simple yet avant-garde light fixture, and this cylinder-shaped chandelier does the trick.

Suspended branches

A glamorous chandelier that strays from the conventional is always a hit - this model looks like hanging white branches suspended over a mod beige and black dining room set.
Sweet simplicity

This ceiling fixture, with pretty mini shades, gives the bedroom a beautiful centerpiece. The tufted fabric headboard is also gorgeous.

Oversized and opulent

The floating kitchen countertop is even more visually appealing when topped with two matching chandeliers that have oversized round drum shades.

Chandeliers always look posh in a bathroom - who wouldn't want to take a nice, long bath and soak in this freestanding tub with sprawling views?

A little lavishness

A crib and vintage kid-centric wall hangings look too cute when paired with antique chairs as well as a bejewelled ceiling light.

eclectic revisited by Maureen Bower via
A chandelier fashioned out of brown metal and cut crystals looks spectacular in this formal dining room - the light fixture really brings out the colours in the velvet chairs and textured wallpaper.

A bedroom with personality, such as the one pictured, features a table lamp and chandelier that mimics the colours and fab feathers in this interesting ostrich wall hanging.

Love that bathing beauty chandelier. The looks of it alone already makes me feel refresh, clean and cool.
