wish list

Their own styles and that of design industry had changed massively within the decade and they decided it was time to carry out a complete overhaul of their Blundellsands home, from top to bottom.

The Challenge

With a vast entrance hallway, Jamie's wife wanted to find a chandelier which would become a dramatic focal point of their sweeping staircase. She had a picture of the lighting she wanted in her head, but just couldn't find something exactly right. She said: "I had a clear idea of what I wanted and I liked certain elements of various lights but each had something missing.

I wondered if these elements could be brought together to create one light that was not only glamorous but unique. Chantelle Lighting had been previously recommended to her for her living room lighting, and they had done a good job, so she decided to give them a call to see if they could help get the vision from her head on to paper.

The Solution

Chantelle's managing director Anthony Holly and project manager Lauren Holly, visited Jamie's wife to look through some design options, and, with a clear understanding of her requirements, put together 3D CAD drawings to show her.

Jamie's wife said: "They were amazing. They paid attention to every detail from the CAD drawing right through to hanging the chandelier and throughout they were friendly, very professional and easy to deal with.

"As a high profile couple you have to be careful about who you let in to your home and we both felt very comfortable with Anthony, Lauren and their chandelier fitters being in the house. Anthony even suggested that they customise a light fitting for our outer entrance area, which I had bought from a shop but wasn't really happy with. He took it back to the factory, had it distressed and brought it back for fitting, and I couldn't be happier with the result."

The Result

The result is a 12ft draping chandelier made up of some 50,000 crystals.

Jamies wife said: "The chandelier really does give you the wow factor and guests are bowled over when they walk in.

"Usually you have to look up to see the light in a room, but this hangs so low you see the bottom first and then continue to enjoy the light as you move up the staircase.

"We are currently looking to refresh our dining room design and we have no doubt about where we will go for lighting when we do.
