When you think of crystal chandeliers, what comes to mind? Illuminating spaces in the Palace of Versailles? That once-in-a-lifetime visit to Buckingham Palace? Or maybe you’re picturing the grand entrance at the White House?
It’s no secret that these well-known sites feature dazzling lighting that creates an elegant, dramatic, and unforgettable aesthetic. But fortunately, eye-catching crystal chandeliers aren’t just for traditional settings and royalty…
Anyone with good taste — yep, that means you! — can display these sparkling, stunning beauties in their home. And when it comes to crystal chandeliers, Schonbek Lighting Company takes the cake.

Today we’re featuring 5 of our favorite styles from the Schonbek Collection, and you may be surprised to see that there is an option to match any interior. Come take a look…
