Interior Designer Profiles: Jan Showers Chandeliers

Jan Showers recently showcased her home in Dallas. In case you don’t know who she is, she’s also known as the best interior designer in the world. While we won’t argue she’s a fantastic designer, we hardly believe she’s the best in the world.

But still, her style is fantastic and she has a fondness for lightning that not many interior designers share.

Her bedroom interior showcases a couple of vintage blush Murano lamps sitting side by side of her bed, on top of two Jan’s commodes 405 from her own Jan Showers collection.

They make a great effort in providing a nice contrasting look that matches the contemporary mirrored finishing.

One thing that we like about her bedroom is how the whole pink gives both a balance and an atmosphere into her room. With soft pastel tones that match everything, from the rig, carpeting, drapes, lamps, furniture and mattress.

A Stunning Modern Chandelier With a Royalty Seal

Another feature that we liked was her stunning and rare fifties chandelier, designed by world class Italian glass masters Mazzega. One of the oldest Murano glass-art houses in Italy.

While we couldn’t find the exact model she just, we found a couple chandeliers that match Shower’s stair rail entry.

Molded glass seems to give shape to a large style Mazzega chandelier hanging high above her house entry stairs. Available on 1stdibs, we also feature a couple modern chandeliers that could match Shower’s style.

First is two variants of our Bebop modern chandelier (160 and 170), with its tubed structure in several tiers, housing 12 lights.

A second suggestion, that is not similar to Jan’s chandelier, but that could provide an even more eclectic entry is our Galactic chandelier. With dozens of pipe structures framed by a gilded circled ring in mirrored gold.

Classic Chandelier for a Home-Office

While we won’t say we loved her chandelier pick for the house office. We do love her pick for her breakfast room. A minimal style chandelier with six cilinder-shaped frames.

The piece does create a nice job in setting the tone for an inspiring space that also provides a beautiful look and magnificent lightning.

Her Elizabeth chandelier is a 6-light minimal chandelier available both in factory-made glass canopy. She also offers an Italian Murano glass version, which we’re more fond of.

We chose two designs to complement her home-office and breakfast room. We did noticed she uses a more classical style chandelier in her dining room. Which is interesting how she picks the contrasting minimal chandelier for the breakfast room, while she picked a more classic look for her dining room.

Domino coloring is not a style that most would welcome, as its’c ontrasting looks might take away strength from more subtle decorations, specially if it’s the breakfast room.

Still, we think a custom made Domino chandelier, with the current looks, painted with a single tone of white would improve the desired look.

Finally, we couldn’t help but notice how she carefully choses every item to compliment and accentuated every aspect of each room. For her nursery room, an 8-light transparent white glass chandelier was selected. Creating a very soft, clean and neutral atmosphere.
