Chandeliers-something other than a chain....

chantelnOctober 13, 2013

I have open beam ceilings in my dining room and the chandelier uses an 8 foot chain. I am replacing my old chandelier with this oil rubbed bronze one and I am wondering if anyone has used or seen a better solution than the old chain. My chain just collects dust and spiderwebs and is difficult to clean since the dust just drops onto the chandelier when I knock it off with a long handled duster. My MIL suggested a silk or polyester chain cover, but that is a bit too Victorian for my taste and I still think it may collect dust and cobwebs to the same degree as my chain. I thought about a modified downrod, like for a ceiling fan, but would like to know if anyone has had success with that?

My kitchen lights came with rods...not sure a rod would look right with your chandelier...
I think the silk cloth would get just as dusty.
