We are not called and known as “the Sparks and Lights” showroom simply because “we sell lights”.
Rather, we have been in Archway, North London, for over 20 years now, providing the latest in the lighting design and light fittings, and at the same time offering you the best advice for the light fittings you need either at home, in the office, or for the project you’re working on.
So, we know a thing or two concerning the light fittings. Many times our customers would ask us,
What’s the Best Chandelier You Guys have in Stock?
It is a general question, but the answer is not as easy as you think. We can tell them that a certain crystal chandelier looks great, or a pendant with elegant mother of pearl chips would be nice.
But we first need to know where the chandelier will be installed, what will that room or venue serve as, what kind of lighting you have in the room, what is the design of the room, what is the traffic like for that room, what’s the purpose of the chandelier, what is the room size, what’s the height of the ceiling, etc.
There are many questions which need to be answered before the decision about, The Best Chandelier for Me, can be made. This brings us to our initial question,
Are the Most Expensive Chandeliers the Best Ones?
First of all, yes, the most expensive chandeliers like the Black Umbrella with Gold Interior (introduced here), the Tiara Star Pendant (featured above), the Flos Fucsia 3 Cone Pendant, and other Artemide, Flos, Nemo, and Franklite chandeliers – they all are excellent, with amazing designs and finishes, and they are also manufactured to the highest lighting industry standards.
However, is the most expensive chandelier in a lighting showroom meet the need you have at home? Do you really need the most expensive crystal chandelier in the living room? Do you really need the fanciest chandelier at the office as a centerpiece above the table?
These chandeliers may be the best ones, but you need to consider whether they are the best ones for you, meeting your lighting needs.
Some of the Most Popular Chandeliers and Pendants
This blog post is not meant to discourage you to purchase the fancy chandeliers in our showroom or on our website, but it is only a reminder: make sure you know what type and style of chandelier you need!
You can always pop into our showroom to get more exact advice on this matter, but if you would allow us to suggest you one range of pendants that people prefer, it would be the Balun pendants.
Large umbrella-style hanging lamps coming in different transparent or opaque finishes, the Balun pendants are great especially for companies, offices, waiting rooms, restaurants, modern homes, and other similar settings (read more about the pendants on our blog here, here, and here.
Many of our customers prefer them, and so we would like to recommend them that you would also have a look here to check them out!
