I’ll take a Romantic Dinner for Two Please!

To the left, Quoizel’s Marquette Collection is a subtle smattering of multifaceted crystal drops.  This refined design is worthy of a French parlor, and nearly as romantic as Paris itself.  The beautiful heirloom finish is a rich bronze with antique silver highlights.  Offered in three different sizes this collection has many coordinating pieces to accommodate all your design needs. 

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than a romantic dinner under a glowing whimsical chandelier.  New to 2013 is Quoizel’s Wesley Collection, 5-candelabra fixture in Italian fresco finish which is also offered in 3 or 8 lights.

Those were the days—and you can have that glamour again if you follow these tips for lighting.
