Shabby Chic design has roots in country style, casual elegance often using reclaimed furnishings and antique or vintage items. Combining some older items and some new items can be a creative and economical design approach.

In this article, we'll go over Shabby Chic design and our favorite Shabby Chic style chandeliers for the dining room.

Shabby Chic Design

Shabby Chic dining rooms have so many options because there aren't too many rules. Shabby Chic often uses light, neutral colors, mixtures of textures and finishes, as well as organic materials.

Finding unique light fixtures and sometimes using an unusual style of light fixture in a different way may be just the finishing touch to the room.
