There is something special about a fancy chandelier with sparkly glass crystals... in an unexpectedly modern room. Like a kitchen, library, or office. It doesn't feel stuffy or over done. To me, it's a sophisticated surprise to modern design. So, I like it.

It takes some digging (and a little bit of vision), but you can find some beautiful vintage chandeliers at flea markets, or on craiglist... even ebay!
