A single tier chandelier brings a sleek, sophisticated component to the home, particularly in kitchens, bedrooms, and dining rooms. With its single row of lights, these chandeliers are versatile and functional enough to enjoy anywhere. Although they may not be as opulent as some of their counterparts, single tier chandeliers come in a wide range of bold, beautiful designs. Consider the Nottaway Chandelier from Currey and Company. Long arms stretch gracefully from a small cog, which is ornamented with a ring, that rests at the bottom of the stem of gold. Though it is a seriously minimalist fixture, the profile of the six-light chandelier has a lovely fluidity to it that makes it a natural choice for traditional and transitional interiors. This chandelier also comes in two different sizes and finish options to suit your space perfectly.

2. Go Modern with a Sputnik Chandelier

Giving a nod to the space race of the 1950s, Sputnik chandeliers bring bold design into your home. These lights typically feature a center sphere with long, slender arms protruding outward to hold the bulbs. Not all sputnik chandeliers are exactly alike, and many lighting manufacturers have put a fresh new spin on this contemporary classic. For example, the Regina Andrew Poppy Glass Chandelier brings a new twist to the sputnik design. This orb-shaped chandelier features an array of small candelabra bulbs for ambient light, and the glow emanates through white or clear glass discs attached to rods of varying lengths. Choose between an oil-rubbed bronze or natural brass finish and white or clear glass to create a custom, dramatic look.
