Nothing says opulence quite like a chandelier. Glistening, glittering and dangling: your eyes go straight to this noticeable feature the minute you walk into a room. Whether staking its claim above a dining table or in the entrance of a home, chandeliers are one of the easier ways to make your spaces unique without having to completely redecorate. If there’s one thing we hipsters love more than individual style, it’s achieving that style with ease.
You may be wondering: how can I incorporate a chandelier into my hipster home without it looking out of place or too contemporary? One of the great things about chandeliers is that you can always find vintage or antique-inspired lights - even in the most popular mainstream stores. Choosing the perfect light couldn’t be easier with this list of the best vintage-inspired chandeliers.

Things to remember when choosing a chandelier for your home:
- Take into consideration the size and layout of the room to make sure your chandelier is not too big or too small.
- Height doesn’t matter! Except with chandeliers… Think about how low your ceiling is and where the chandelier will hang - you don’t want to be bumping your head.
- Ask yourself how you plan to install the chandelier: do you have the tools and the skills, or will you need to hire someone to do it for you?
