Interior designer Michael Bell used our Kent Chandelier in a stunning house shown in Maine Home + Design (March 2010). He designed it for the Sowell family, friends from DC, as their second home. Maine Home quotes Bell, “Everything in this house was about scale – big things that make a big statement”, including an oversized chandelier from Niermann Weeks. Yes, our chandelier truly was oversized at 48″ diameter x 42″ high, but the twenty foot ceilings give an airy feel to the cool aqua space. A room that grandly proportioned could easily overwhelm its contents, but clearly Mr. Bell knows how to select and place just the right furnishings. I envy the Sowells for their serene living room with its ocean views. Lucky people!
