Modern Foyer / June 5, 2018 / Ellie Robin.
Usually foyer chandeliers are placed at the entrance. So, the interior décor should be in perfect harmony with that of the floor and ceiling. This lighting fixture not only enhances the appearance of the room but also expresses the owner's personality. These fixtures will also make an everlasting impression in the visitor's minds. They will be overwhelmed by the magnificence of these illumination fixtures. Chandeliers made of crystals will create an effect of cascading liquid light- that will bathe the spectators in a warm glow.
Hang a tapestry on an iron rod and place a garden bench beneath. The tapestry will add softness and texture. The bench will not only be esthetically pleasing but functional as well, serving as a place for removing shoes or simply a resting place. If you have the ample room in your foyer, using a chest or commode is an excellent choice. The top of the chest gives you plenty of area to display your favorite lamp or a pair of candlestick lamps. You may also want to accessorize with a small collection of boxes or any other collection. I love the idea of all the extra storage space you gain when using a chest.
Use an oversized urn with a sprawling palm tree. A 19th century Victorian Hall Tree in the right home would be beautiful and functional. An antique store would be the best place to look for a piece like this or better yet an auction or estate sale. Use a pair of corbels topped with marble or a pair of iron supports topped with glass for a shelf to hold a vase of flowers, keys and mail.
Apart from chandeliers, even pendant lighting gains more popularity in decorating the foyer. For instance, Kichler pendant lights come in different styles and you can choose the right one that gives your home a welcoming effect. If your foyers have low ceiling, then instead of long chandeliers and pendant lights, you can fix flush mount or semi-flush mount ceiling lights in your entryway.
