Editor's Note: I love Mediterranean style. My grade school was Spanish inspired. I always associated this style with Spain, but it can be Moroccan, Italian even Turkish. It can be colorful or darker with scrollwork as these pictures suggest.

Mediterranean Equestrian Estate, Carmel, California

The Mediterranean Style Dining rooms are reminiscent of the Gold Coast of the Mediterranean or the“Cote D’Azur “of Spain, France and Italy. The stone and stucco walls keep the homes cool in the heat.

Wrought iron fences and gates are usually full of the fragrant Bougainvillea flowers or the grape vines. Much of the population loves outdoor dining on the terrace and balcony.

This Metropolitan Pendant below 34” by 40” $999 or chandelier for $1699 with leaf motif are perfect.

Troy Lighting Bordeaux Chandelier and Sconce

This Troy Lighting 26” by 38" Bordeaux chandelier - $1,700 is perfect for space. The matching wall sconce shown below for $346.


Arched openings and windows again reflect the style of the villas along the coasts and cliffs.

The 41” Chateau from Murray Feiss - $838 


This chandelier is perfect for the elongated table above as it stretches down the length of the table for a dramatic effect. With only 22” width it does not crowd the narrow space. This is in Mocha Bronze with touches of clear crystals.

Final Thoughts

Decorative lighting is simply an expression of your personal taste. In many ways, it is like jewelry. Mediterranean covers many different designs from heavy black to the more whimsical white. You can have some fun with this style.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
