chandelier suggestions

Looking for a budget chandelier (less than $500) for two story foyer. This is a pretty large space (12ft x 12 ft). The downstairs has 9 ft. ceilings, so ceiling is quite high. I would like something transitional perhaps a drum chandelier. I will post a link below of one I like but it is only 20 inches in diameter, so I don't think it is large enough.
Here are pics of my foyer:

RE: chandelier suggestions

I wouldn't put a drum light like that in such a tall space. It's not just diameter -- I think the proportions are wrong for a foyer. You also need to be mindful or your other fixtures, woodwork details, leaded glass and pick something that works with them.

This one is only 18 inches wide, but it is over 38 inches tall. That fits the smaller and taller space of the foyer. (sorry -- tried to include the photo but could only link it)

RE: chandelier suggestions

What are the dimensions of the foyer. We have a somewhat narrow two story foyer and a glass drum fixture with four lights works fine.

I saw this one today and thought of you. It is very simple and handsome. Does something like this interest you?
