I've been looking for the perfect light fixture for a dining room and it hasn't been easy.  My list of wants is short but exact--a chandelier that is delicate, jewel-like but not exaggerated or excessive.  Scouring my sources for one such chandelier,  I came upon this photo of a kitchen designed by Amanda Nisbet Design that features a pair of gorgeous chandeliers.  Bingo! 

Charming and witty, Amanda has an incredible eye for color and composition that she brings with stylish panache to each room she designs. An Upper East Side fixture with a lovely family herself, Amanda is known for designing rooms with playful color palettes and a sophisticated touch--always with a mindful eye to the comfort and needs of the family. 

The kitchen's plain white cabinets, minimal hardware and traditional wood island allows the center of attention to be fixed squarely on the star-the pair of Serena chandeliers by Oly Studio. The luminescent circles of capiz and brass detail on the delicate drum chandeliers define the room and create a central focus. Barely there lucite chairs provide both form and function-the iridescent seat cushions are upholstered in family friendly fabric and the clear chairs don't distract from the delicate chandeliers. Who wouldn't love to cook in this glamorous, cosmopolitan kitchen?

Serena Drum Chandelier is available at Oly Studio and Tonic Home
