Metropolitan Home - Conti Chandelier

Glamour Rules for "Editors' Choice" in Metropolitan Home magazine this month. To celebrate Met Home's latest book, Glamour: Making It Modern, they asked top designers and architects for their secrets to creating rooms worthy of the silver screen.
An obvious choice for this category, the Conti Chandelier from Arteriors Home, brings the right amount of glam with it's antique brass finish and crystal accents.
The 2-tier shape is simple and Arteriors Home offers shoppers a choice of nickel (above) or brass (below) finish to work with. Sometimes "less is more" and in this case, it's abundantly luxurious. Hang this 9-light chandelier in your dining room and enjoy the compliments that are sure to follow.


Kitchen Pendant Lights - Top 10

Kitchen pendant lights can completely change the look and feel of the most used and highly visible room in your home. Fortunately there are many choices out there for us to select from. Whether your decor is modern, casual, rustic or high style - pendants lights can be a great addition over an island or sink area. We've rounded up our Top 10 Favorite Pendant Lights at Clayton Gray Home - see what you think!
1. Hammered Wide Iron Pendant from Arteriors Home - metal design plays off other metal elements of a kitchen. Silver and gold combo makes it an easy fit, but the best part of this light by far, is it's shape. "Bell bottom" look is unique and adds personality with ease.
2. Metal Slats Pendant - simple "slats" of metal form a round shape hanging from a simple chain. Black color plays a neutral for all accessories in a kitchens. Scallop edge and flared design give definition to this light fixture.
3. Wash Tub Pendant - little more rustic, but high on style and interest. Finish will vary from pendant to pendant, but the aged effect is key. Why not turn things upside down every now and then and have a little fun?
4. Anderson Iron Pendant from Arteriors Home - much more sleek design. Simple in finish and coloring, this one is ideal in pairs. Diffuser softens the overall light projected.
5. Bell Pendant - we love these! Line up a row of them and enjoy. Again finish will vary and unique shape keeps a kitchen from looking boring. We promise that you will have lots of compliments from house guests!
6. Faceted Mirrored Pendant from Worlds Away - here you have an upscale choice with it's strips of uneven antique mirrors. The reflection of the light is eye-catching and an overall mood is hard to avoid.
7. Marilyn Pendant from Worlds Away - another round shaped light that brings in crystals for a completely different touch. In gold or silver leaf, this light can be the finishing accessory for your kitchen.
8. Venini Chandelier from Worlds Away - even though this light fixture is a bit bigger than the other "pendant" lights, it's such a great fixture that would look so attractive with its canopy and leaf detail.

9. Loft Lantern - easily your favorite in terms of light fixtures. Clayton Gray Home shoppers have cleaned us out on this fixture - 1 and 2 lights. However, we have restocked! The Loft Lantern is simple with it's clear glass and simple metal frame. It easily fits into any style kitchen.
10. Antique Brass Pendant - we originally placed these lining a hallway, then viewed a recent installment in a kitchen and loved them in a kitchen! The under side of the brass piece is mirrored, which is a little hard to see in the photo, but it's detailed design is casual and elegant at the same time.

>So there are the top 10 favorite lights for a kitchen. Each is a little different, offering it's own personality and effect. Which is your favorite?
