How to arrange 2 metal pieces above buffet
Vera Zonis
August 1, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have 2 metal art pieces, 1 is larger than the other. I can't do just the bigger art piece over the buffet because its not large enough for the space. Since I am using 2 prices, what is the best way to arrange them?

You could place the larger piece slighter higher than the other as suggested in this pic(even tho it shows3)
it's for the general idea

I love those "platters"! Actually, I think the biggest one centered is plenty big. Especially if you put buffet lamps on each end. Lighting there would reflect on the art piece beautifully as well.

Very nice. I would be inclined to hang one up & one low - probably bigger first, then smaller below it. Don't hang too high - keep larger one just above eye level, and ensure smaller one not dragging on buffet.

Whatever hangs above the buffet should not be more than 75% of its width, so layered, keep them within that footprint. Measure it on the buffet top and use blue painters tape on it and the wall to keep the two pieces in that target location, centered with 25% of the buffet top out from under the arrangement.

I think you should go with the one large one.

2 pieces over the buffet will look ok .
There is room for chairs/whatever on either side of the chest if they're looking for balance.
2 pieces over the chest will make a statement.
PS You're chandelier is fantastic!!

I think you should hang the larger of the 2 over the buffet and place the smaller on the dining table with some accessories. The platters have great reflective qualities and one under the chandelier will look great too!

Charmayne's is a good idea. Also, the lower piece should be about 5" above the buffet's surface.

Beautiful platters. I would hang the larger one lower on the left and the smaller one higher on its right with just enough space to put a lamp on the left. Then you have your odd number.
