How is everyone? 0

We hope everyone is staying healthy!  Here in Eden NC, we are all doing okay... working away to get you your beautiful lights or the parts you need.  We've added more of our antique parts to the site and are hoping to add more this weekend, so stay tuned!

We can duplicate the structure of the Tryon for anyone interested in a Georgian style chandelier.  We have many alternative crystals for trimming.

As always, feel free to contact us for any custom chandelier creations!

A well-proportioned chandelier is timeless, and our chandelier Raleigh is one of our perpetual favorites. What makes it well-proportioned?  The best way to describe this quality in a chandelier is to say that it is well-balanced.  There are an even number of arms (6 lower and 6 upper) which makes a chandelier look good from every angle.  … Continue reading Chandelier of the Week – Raleigh
