Chandelier - pics or opinions of either?
We're building new. The Dining ended up 15x15, off the foyer, two separate windows to front porch, 9' ceiling with a little trim as a faux trey, crown moulding, chair rail, wide board character hardwood. Home style so far in frame + stone w/wrought iron style exterior lighting, etc. We will be getting new dining furniture next coupla years to replace creaky-but-lovely Grandmother's Duncan Phyfe federal-style pieces, so matching to them not preferable.
Builder is using Progress Lighting, and we're looking @ either the Torino 6-light w/bottom 3-light dome, or the Melbourne 9-light. Between us two, I won't mention Who prefers Which. ;-)
Do any of you have pics of either Torino or Melbourne installed in your home, or have experience with them? Or any opinion on either? We haven't seen either light "in person" - nobody seems to carry exact colors or styles in stock (silly, we know, to actually want to SEE something before you do your whole home in it). So we turn to You. Any responses TIA ! (I'd post links / pics of the lights, but am a little challenged doing that on GW yet, sorry!)
