1 large chandelier or 2 medium?

last modified: last month

I have an industrial/modern type reception room I need to get lighting for. The room is 14 ft high, approx 17x20 , with exposed ceiling in off black. According to the size of the room, my chandelier shd be (L+W in ft converted to inches) 38" but does this account for the high ceilings ?

Hall (also exposed ceiling) has clear globe pendants w black downrods. The front door is glass and the hallway is an important line of sight straight back. That is why i was thinking of doing two chandeliers in the areas of the front room "flanking" the hallway.

So do I put up TWO 20" chandeliers ....or look for one giant 38-40" one (expensive!)


your help!
