The grand chandelier illuminates the way for the elegantly dressed guests as they descend the magnificent staircase. Anticipation of the eventful weekend to come electrifies conversations and quickens the sound of the footsteps echoing through the cavernous stairwell. Viewers are encouraged to interject their own experiences as they imagine the scene taking place underneath the grand illumination.
I was amazed by the grandeur of this chandelier in a stairwell at Biltmore.
