12 Best Chandeliers, Modern, Crystal, Glass, Vintage

12 Best Chandeliers, Modern, Crystal, Glass, Vintage

A curated list of the best chandeliers, featuring the best, top rated modern, crystal, glass and vintage chandeliers for the living room and dining room — plus affordable options.

There are a number of qualities to consider when looking for and purchasing a high quality chandelier. Among some of the most important things are material quality, size, wattage, aesthetic and affordability. With respect to materials, we recommend you look for crystal chandeliers if you prefer the more expensive and traditional look and feel; and that you look for glass, steel, iron or some kind of metal composite if you tend to gravitate towards the more modern and contemporary aesthetic. The latter material options also tend to be more affordable, or relatively cheaper. With respect to size and wattage, this is rather dependent upon the interior dimensions of the room you’re buying for. That is, if you’re looking for a chandelier for your foyer, perhaps you want a longer light fixture, while a dining room chandelier may tend to be shorter. Of course this all depends on ceiling height. Wattage, too, is up to you. We recommend choosing chandeliers with LED bulbs for energy efficiency reasons, but it’s up to in the end. Overall, for this collection, we curated for the best chandeliers, based on a number of design and material qualities. You’ll find chandeliers that are made with crystal, glass or steel — in addition to vintage, modern, retro and minimalist design chandeliers. We also included a handful of affordable options below. We hope to do another collection that curates for the best modern chandeliers. Stay tuned.

Elegant Niagara Butterly Chandelier, Made of Genuine Lladro Fine Porcelain, Handmade in Valencia Spain, 2 Meters.
By: Lladro

Editor's Note

In our opinion, this was one of the most – if not the most – elegant, unique and beautiful chandeliers we came across in our search. This piece if crafted out of genuine Lladro fine porcelain and is handmade in Valencia, Spain. According to the seller’s page, chandeliers made by Lladro go through a number of creative steps before reaching their final form. Each Lladro creation begins with an artistic inspiration. The sculptor then makes the first sketch of the new figure in clay, which is examined and approved by the Creativity Committee, made up by many members, one of whom comes from the Lladro family. The sketch, in clay, is reproduced in plaster to provide the first mold, which will in turn become the definitive mold for the porcelain figurine. The chandelier is then polished, finished and goes through a number of quality assurance tests. Overall, a wonderful selection and high on our list for the best chandeliers. Please note that it is pricey, but we thought we’d provide it as an option.

Modern, Minimalist Design Saint Mossi Square Led Chandelier with Adjustable Hanging Light and Contemporary Ceiling Pendant Light.
By: Saint Mossi

Editor's Note

We’re suckers for good, unique minimalist design – and this chandelier certainly fits the bill. This chandelier features a geometric design, with two intertwining, hanging squares. It’s also made with LED bulbs, which means it’s energy efficient and will save you a nice chunk of change every month on your energy bill. In terms of where it could be installed, we think it’d work as a chandelier for the bedroom, kitchen or dining room. For modern design, in our opinion, this is one of the best chandeliers on our list.
