This chandelier is definitely modern with its sleek and simple design. The all wrought iron chandelier is shaped into a swooping design with a ball detail in just the right places. The six candles are at a higher place than on normal traditional chandeliers. The center post is also a sleek design with a larger ball holding the candle arms and that ends at a point at the bottom with a small ball on the tip. The chandelier is finished in a hand finished brushed silver, the petite balls are gold leaf and the candles have a darker smokey beige sleeve that are held by more modern styled candle cups. Unique and beautiful! This chandelier is round and only 27" across x 36" high from the bottom tip up to where the 6 foot chain meets at the circle. Six lights at 60w maximum each that is perfect for dining. Weighs 7 pounds. Matches our three tiered chandelier C09159 at http://www.TheDesignerInsider.com.
