Double Chandeliers

My Oversized Chandeliers post received so many great comments, and apparently we all agree, you can do no wrong with an oversized chandelier. Thanks for sharing everyone!

How about if you substitute the one oversized chandelier with a pair of chandeliers or pendants over the dining table? This roundup of double chandeliers certainly make a statement… enjoy!

This last picture is unlike the others simply because the table is so lengthy, that one chandelier just wouldn’t do overtop. The shelves with table and pendants – definitely making a statement!TIDG-path-3-0800

What’s your preference – one oversized or double?

Loved this Wendy and it's exactly what I'm doing in my new kitchen- one over the island and two over the table- can't wait to show you all!! xo

I don't really have a preference either way. I think it depends on the length of your table and the style of chandelier/pendant that you like. I really love those white pendants with the gold inside - beautiful!

I think if the table is long enough, the double looks AMAZING.

Great photo round up - all gorgeous images!

Why have one when two is always better? :) I like the double-chandelier look a lot, but only if there's a gigantic table or large enough space to accommodate them.

I added two pendant lights to a client's kitchen island and I love the way it turned out - in my client's case, two was better than three!

Thanks for sharing some great images, Wendy.

I love this look too, especially with those huge oversize tables.

Oh, to have a room large enough to handle two chandeliers! Lovely images!

Double is great! Heck, I would have 10 in a row if I had the space - Love!

How cool does the orange look in the 2nd pic. I'm drawn to gold tones just now and the gold lined shades of #8 would draw me in like a moth.

Oversized is good so double oversized is even better ;) Most of the time we have to little things in our homes anyway... Let me know what you think about my triple lampshades I made ;)

Don't make me choose between one oversized chandelier or two! I love both looks. Although maybe I'd lean slightly towards two chandeliers, just because it's a more unexpected and unusual look.

I swoon every time I see that gorgeous dining room by Candice Olson!

Hi Wendy,

I have a large bedroom with 10 foot ceilings and it is 24x17' . To get the diameter, if I add the dimensions I am at 41 inches but I cant go larger than 30 in height. So problem is that a nice crystal chandelier is often higher than wider. I am thinking about putting two in the bedroom, what diameter so you think I should use?
