I've been looking at replacement options for a while now. Initially, I thought I would replace it with something like this from PotteryBarn.
It would look (sort of) like this. It's kind of hard to tell from my poorly photoshopped picture, but I think the style of this chandelier is still too classic for this room. I don't think it would look horrible, but I don't think it would ever look like it really belonged in the room, either.
So I'm finding myself drawn to very modern-looking chandeliers like this one in a room designed by Thad Hayes. This one is just beautiful. I've had this picture in my files forever and I can just stare at that light fixture for hours.
Our furniture in the dining room and living room is Danish modern and I think a chandelier like this would fit in well.
This lotus flower chandelier from Modern Dose is an affordable option. It's made of capiz shell that's edged with metal and I think it's tranquil-looking and striking at the same time.
Here's a mock-up of what it would (sort of) look like. I think I got the scale of it wrong and it would actually be a little smaller.I have two reservations, though. The first is that I doubt it gives off a lot of light. This would be a real problem since the chandelier is the only light fixture in the dining room.
The second is that it looks like a dusting nightmare. The more I look at it, the more I find myself imagining the dust that would settle over every one of those capiz shell petals.
So I think a little more research is in order.
