You have a living space filled with class personified furniture. A collection of fine arts complementing the silky walls. Luxurious linens for windows and a stylish hand-knotted rug for the floor. A Sitar, or a guitar, in a corner. Your elegant living space looks fine unless you lift your head upwards.

Consider adding the finest quality chandelier. The overhead lighting fixture will be the statement lighting for your living room, oozing of fancy, but an elegant taste.
One caution though, lavish brands do come with a hefty price tag, and only look fit for large households.

Modern chandeliers are growing in popularity as a luxury interior decor, thanks to the thriving real estate scene in Bangladesh. People are building more and more top-shelf apartments and duplex villas.
As the game-changing, finishing touch, a chandelier is all you need to give your place the final uplift in decoration.

Exploring the markets in Dhaka, you will find an exquisite collection of top notch chandeliers. High-end stores like Satori, High Fashion Gallery Limited, and Creative I limited, have variety of chandelier collections.
Creative I Limited is a prominent store for enviable interior solutions, chandeliers in particular. Shah Moazzem Hossain, general manager of the store, shared his first-hand experience.
