Going the long direction of the room also typically corresponds with the appropriate structural consideration for floor installation, which is to install floor planks perpendicular to the direction of the floor joists. Installing perpendicular to joists maximizes the strength and rigidity of your floor.

Aesthetics are always important but in most situations the structural component of floor installation is given precedence.

Hi- I think it might even be eggshell or satin- not gloss.

That, I believe, is a Sara A83 (small) with 9" canopy. This was completely sourced by the owners and they may have gotten it at ABC carpet.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Brooklyn Townhouse Full of Light
This opening was widened to give the narrow living room a more balanced sense of proportion. The project's contractor, John Kemp Construction, replaced the crown molding on the ceiling, and cut out and reattached all of the tin with exquisite care so that it would look as though the room was always this size. Chandelier: Canopy Designs, ABC Carpet & Home
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to American Home Style: The Row House
Row house interiors are long and narrow spaces. Typically a stair hall at one side and living rooms to the other. Large openings between all the rooms allow natural light to permeate the interior.
Here we can see how a traditional middle-class Victorian layout has been adapted for modern living. A long, thin entrance hall would have opened to the drawing room on the right, then a separate dining room would have followed by the kitchen at the end. This conversion really opens up the space while still having clear sitting, dining and hall areas. The drawing room would have had a fireplace, but this has been removed and replaced with practical wall units; the dining room fireplace has been kept.
This smaller chandelier in light-colored glass draws the eye up to this townhome's intricate tin ceiling. See the rest of this townhouse
