Chandelier Shopping made easy.As many of you have seen JENRON DESIGNS company tagline is ” Good Designs Never Goes Out Of Style, It’s a Way of Life.” Today on ASK THE DESIGNER, I would like to share with you all why I believe this statement to be true.
Below is a picture of my favorite chandelier in my entire house to date just one of many found while Chandelier Shopping. I just love the way the iron filigree casts a beautiful light design in my stairwell at night. We have added a dimmer, which I recommend doing to all your lighting if possible. A dimmer allows you to control the amount of light at all times, so I can create a relaxed ambient vibe or crank it up to full blown “mop the floors , better not miss a spot” functional.
So not only is this a stunning light fixture, it also has an amazing story to go with it. The story actually proves that my design mantra above is in fact a true statement. This gorgeous chandelier was purchased from a tent sale at Progressive Lighting, no surprise I am sure, but here is the kicker….. It was purchased almost 10 years ago. At a tent sale….. yes I said tent sale. I actually ran full speed across the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds, with 100’s of other crazy light fixture people. I latch myself on to this beauty in order to get it for the absolute steal of $75. I know it’s unbelievable, but I promise it’s a totally true story. The next generation of this beautiful Maxim Southern Foyer Pendant is still available today for an everyday price of $1,200. We totally got a deal!
So moral of this story:
1) Always go to the local warehouse or tent sales, and choose wisely.
2) If you miss the tent sale and are local, check out the Progressive Outlet located at the HWY 400, Cumming location, it’s in the back warehouse behind the showroom.
3) Always get classic pieces that will hold the test of time. Feel free to embrace a current trend with changeable items such as paint, pillows & accessories.
This is the Charlton Rancourt 3 Light Foyer Pendants (available in 3 colors) seen in my hallway.

So people have asked, why did you buy a huge light fixture and store it in the attic of your previous home? Well why not, I knew I planned to build bigger home at some point it was inevitable. I also knew that I loved the style of this lantern style chandelier, and it had a classic feel that I knew would never go out of style. As far as it’s grand scale, well I was hoping build my new home with ceilings high enough to accommodate such a large fixture. I really loved the fixture so it really did not matter to me if it went into a foyer, master bathroom, or bedroom. When my husband and I saw this beautiful open stairwell in the Sharp Residential, now Toll Brothers, Highcroft model home, we knew right away that our $75 tent sale find would be the crowning jewel this area needed desperately. Please keep in mind we did have to install this ourselves after we closed on our home and had already moved in and I am sure every home inspector that came by wondered why we had such heavy bracing for a simple light socket, lol.
Above is another one of my tent sale finds that we used in one of our guest rooms just to glam it up and make it feel special. It was also a steal at just under $100 as well. Lighting truly is one of the easiest ways to update a space and add value to your home. It is also a very simple way to add value yourself with quick weekend projects. Honestly a simple youtube video these days can explain the basics of how to install a light fixture which is pretty basic stuff. Check out these other great lighting option that I am also keeping my eye on for future rooms in my home below.

Pretty! This was a really wonderful article. Many thanks for providing this information.
These chandelier are so beautiful. My husband is so fond of such unique collections. I will go though the given sites for sure and check the out.
That is such a lovely chandelier! I have always wanted one above our dining room table. They make such beautiful, yet simple decor!
Chandeliers are always one of the best options to add value for the interior space. I really like the first design of the metal chandelier. As mentioned above,a good design never goes out of style.
I sure need a facelift on my light fixtures and will be looking into these ideas. I can’t believe how ugly mine are since moving into this new house! LOL! Thanks for the ideas and the well written article 🙂
I would love a new chandelier in my dining room. When the people who lived here before us left, they took theirs and left us with a lame light fixture. I would love to replace that.
Ah. I love chandeliers and this is a great post ! Thank you.
How gorgeous! I’d like to buy a chandelier someday. They’re so pretty.
Thank you be sure to check out the local tent sales, yo can find great deals.
Thank you for stopping by and supporting our blog 🙂
Thank you for stopping by glad to help out. Yes I agree, it amazes me how a new home can have such ugly fixtures, ours was the same way. In all honesty, I pick the base lighting package package since I knew we would change most them out to something more our style. You will get there just take one room at time 🙂
I agree thank you for checking out our little blog. I love meeting fellow like minded designers 🙂
Wow it is amazing that you got it for £75 and a new generation version is now worth over a grand! The light fixture is gorgeous !
I know it was a total steal, I couldn’t believe it myself when I saw it!!! Thank you for stopping by 🙂
Both of those are beautiful! I love the looks of them. Maybe I can convince my husband that we need a chandelier.
Oh there is always room for a new chandelier!!! Just keep a watchful eye for a great deal on something you love, that will make you love it even more 🙂
Those are very beautiful light fixtures. I can imagine it with a very specific type of house. I just can’t imagine the house I am in using them. But maybe I just need different paint on the rooms I would put it in. I will have to think about this.
Those are stunning chandeliers. I wish my house had a good spot for one.
This is a really stunning fixture! Congrats on the find – it looks great there, too!
Love chandeliers and the look that they add to a space! We moved recently and I’ve been wanting to replace the one in the dining room. I love the one that you found, it’s gorgeous!
Thank you, yes we have many more to replace too. We just went with the basic builder package knowing how picky we are, it just take time.
Thank you and so glad to see you visiting our page 🙂
You never know, I feel in love with it and stored it for 10 years before I got to hang it up in my new home. I could never get the deal now that I got then 🙂
It is an easy upgrade to change out a light fixture as it is with paint too. Lots of designs bang for a little buck.
It’s been a long time since I last bought a chandelier like this! I love the style, it’s definitely timeless!
Chandeliers are always so beautiful. I prefer these over the heavily decorated ones. I think it’s really lovely!
What a great tent find. I have an obsessions with chandeliers. The fancier the better.
I love chandeliers! Great advice to keep it timeless – it’s terrible to pick anything for your home only to have it look extremely dated/out-of-style a few years later!
Thank you I loved the lantern shape too 🙂
Thank you I really do love it. Please make sure to come back to see our next big post 🙂
I could not agree with you more!!!
I agree with you completely. Thanks for popping in to say hi.
Thank you!!! I love your analogy of it to red lipstick, classic and never goes out of style.
Your lamp is classic and gorgeous. Indeed it never fades its beauty, just like a red lipstick.
Those are both beautiful, but I like the one above the stairs the best! Wow, what a statement! Gorgeous!
Thank you it is my favorite as well!!!
