They are just awful. Why builders or their design team insist on purchasing these glass and brass monstrosities from the 1980’s is beyond me. I mean, they are equally ugly and ubiquitous. Can’t they see that? I am on a personal mission to make as many people see the light (pun intended) as I can. Sure, you may not get a Chihuly, but you can live a little.
There is no reason why your lighting has to be so cookie cutter, so boring in your new home. I have seen homes, by the same builder in the 100k range as well as the 850k range that BOTH had the exact same chandeliers over the dining tables. Disgusting!
