YOUR PLACE LIGHTEN UP! BOLD OPTIONS FOR OVERHEAD ILLUMINATION.

Byline: Diana McKeon Charkalis Lifestyle Editor

Overhead fixtures- it's more than just recessed lighting. This year, chandelier chic abounds, with other forms of pendant lighting making bold statements as well. Here's a look at some of what's out there.

There are plenty of bright ideas at YLighting, which has a large selection of hip, modern pendants. They're affordable too - many models go for under $200. For those on a bigger budget, there's the Magdelena from Italy, a captivating orb that comes in two sizes and ranges in price from $2,185.35-$2,682.60. Check out the selection at www.ylighting.com or call (866) 428-9289.

The Shine Lamps company is known for its hand-crafted glass illuminations, inspired by the midcentury design movement. The new pendant collection comes in an array of colors and retails for $790-$990.

Talk about retro-chic chandeliers. This 17th-century style crystal piece was reputedly a favorite of Louis XIV. Schonbek Lighting has re-created its ornate framework with black crystals - perfect for anyone wanted to give their home the royal treatment.

For the truly mod, Schonbek also offers high-tech pendants in wild crystal colors. For more information about pricing as well as L.A.-area showrooms that feature Schonbek lighting, visit www.schonbek.com.

This chandelier from the Sundance catalog would look great anywhere - from a downtown loft to a beachy cottage. Created by designer Lisa Nardone and handmade in Italy, the iron frame is beaded with glass crystals and dripping with amethyst glass. $745 at sundancecatalog.com or 800-422-2770.
