Victorian Lighting in Double Parlors 0
If you are a follower of our blog, then you know I've been using it to catalog and preserve some of the articles and press that have included our crystal chandeliers over the years. The photos are fading, which is particularly a shame in regards to these grandly decorated Victorian homes. I truly love the wallpapers and fabrics used in these interiors.
(Speaking of wallpaper... we frequently share the stage with Bradbury and Bradbury - check them out if you aren't familiar.)
Double parlors were common in Grand Victoriana, and those spaces just beg for fantastic, show stopping chandeliers. There is just something luxurious about twin crystal chandeliers and these photos are true examples of that lavish decor.
Our lovely Richmond 6 is lighting the space shown below, a historic home in the Algiers Point neighborhood of New Orleans.

Our Charleston 6 is doing a fine job of adding to the historic feel of this Brooklyn Brownstone's double parlor.

When I clean out a drawer around here, I find the best things! I love these old photos from what must be the late Fifties. These lovelies were in some of our early catalogs showing the larger crystal chandeliers.
I'm not sure of the house and exactly who every one is... though the handsome man in the tuxedo is Durward King.
Although I don't recognize all of the people, I do recognize some of the furniture as pieces that found their way to our showroom over the years. Those pieces were meant to last generations - just like our chandeliers.

Now that your chandelier is clean and you have your menu set, we hope you can take a little breather and enjoy a few quiet minutes to reflect on all for which you are thankful.
We are doing just that.
We truly have the best customers. You are patient with us when we are slow, and excited when we are ahead of schedule. You show such wonderful enthusiasm for our product and our knowledge... I don't think all companies get to experience that. You invite us into your homes (both literally and figuratively) and share your family heirlooms and stories. It is hard to express how appreciative we are.
We are so thankful for each and every one of you!

If you are looking for more photos of our chandeliers and sconces, we have a few places for you to look.
Every now and again we run across photos of rooms that include our chandeliers - photos that are more professional in nature. When we catch sight of them, we pin them to one of our Pinterest boards which you can see here.
And, if you are a Houzz lover, make sure to look at our idea board, Our Customers' Beautiful Rooms.
We love receiving those photos, so if you have one of our chandeliers or are purchasing one in the future, please send us a photo showing the chandelier in your room!
