Bold + Modern Chandeliers for Two-Story Foyers

Hello and happy Friday! I hope you guys have had a great week! We are headed down to the beach house tomorrow for a final week of fun before school starts on the 14th! And, the best part about it is that one of my besties who lives in London is bringing her whole family to visit for a few days and I CANNOT.WAIT!!! She has three littles, one is a newborn, and I’m so excited to see them. Make sure you’re following along on the fun as I will definitely make her hang out on Instagram stories with me!

So, I’ve been helping out a friend with sourcing light options for her two-story foyer and it inspired me to look around and find my favorite modern chandeliers for this type of space. I love statement lighting and below are some of my favorite rooms with bold lighting that I’ve found. I’ve also shopped around to find you some similar pieces at mostly affordable prices. So if you’re trying to figure out what type of light to put in a foyer or if you just love design, read on. Hopefully this will spark some inspiration in you as it did me!

Here are the before pictures of the space we’re working on so you can get an idea of the size. It’s a great space and I can’t wait to find the perfect piece! I’ll definitely up date you and let you know what we decide on. But for now, check out all of the great lights we found!



This is one of my favorite foyers that I found and this light is stunning! I will say though, I would probably shy away from this because really, who wants to change those bulbs inside of all those globes that high up? But don’t worry there are some great options in similar styles without the globes that would work!

Lanterns are always a good idea in a large foyer area and there are a so many great modern options available now.

I wouldn’t call this chandelier modern per se but it’s definitely bold and looks beautiful against the crisp white back drop. A crystal chandy in the right space never goes out of style!

This drop-style or cluster chandelier works really well in filling up a large, open foyer.

I just love this modern twist on a traditional-style chandelier with shades.

I didn’t think I would be drawn to this type of pendant in a foyer but I’m really loving this one. I didn’t find one quite this big but I did find a great teardrop option!
