High ceilings need big and long pendant lighting fixtures. First, for the perfect lighting. Also, beyond functional direct luminosity, the right glow sets the mood in any room, from the dining table to the foyer. Of course, for that, you need the right light bulbs, dimmers, and all the boring technical stuff. But no other type of lighting fixture will allow you to put so many light spots together in such a mesmerizing way as an oversized modern chandelier will. Second, breathtaking big chandeliers fill the space and give a pleasant sense of balance in the vast opening area between the ceiling and your outstanding furniture. No matter how minimalist we are, large modern chandeliers are the perfect lighting fixture for a high ceiling in a contemporary, cool, or modern-chic house, of course.
So, for this post, I selected only the most impressive modern chandeliers for high ceilings. The ones we see on interior designer and architect’s Instagram, you know? They will create a unique aesthetic to your well-appointed dining area, staircase, entrance, living room, bedroom.. you name it.
