Anna from Door 16 saw this chandelier, and was immediately reminded of Ray Eames’s classic “Dot” pattern. It’s one of her favorite designs, and she liked the idea of introducing that mid-century style to her dining room.

See how the choice transformed her dining space!

“The biggest mistake people make is going with a fixture that’s too small for a space. If you have high ceilings, you can get away with a very large overhead even in a narrow dining room like mine. And always install a dimmer switch!” – Anna Dorfman

It looks just wonderful! I love the black as it has a stately affect. The fact that you used the color black to paint the doors as well is bold and rich looking! There is something to be said about a black door. Many upscale homes have black doors on them. You did a magnificent job with the colors and fixtures.
