The chairs and the dining table were passed down to my clients from their grandparents.

the ceiling height is 9', and I'm not sure the exact dimensions of the chandelier, but I would say it is probably around 34" Diameter, and probably about 28"-32" tall.

Hi, and thanks so much for your question. I am not sure exactly of the colors for the faux finish. I had our faux finisher do some samples, and he presented about 6 options based on our description of what we were looking for. The paint is a bright orange though with a magenta glaze, (the magenta glaze does kill some of the brightness of the orange). Our faux painter also did a plaster stencil medallion on the walls before painting, which gave the walls a subtle pattern relief and just a little more interest to the walls. Thanks so much hope this helps.

The chandelier was one of the only things existing in the room. Schonbeck lighting might have a some similar ones. Here's a link to their site-

Another vendor who may have similar pieces is James R. Moder-

Let me know if this helps

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to 7 Unstuffy Ways With a Formal Dining Set
Vibrant. A riot of color and pattern spices up what could have been a very traditional dining area. Orange walls, sizzling pink and white chair seats, beribboned armchairs at either end of the table and preppy plaid curtains combine with such confidence that they cooperate rather than clash. Even so, the room has enough formal architecture and fixtures that the Chippendale dining set doesn't feel out of place.
