A classic modern chandelier never goes out of style, although a few subtle updates can make it all the more stunning.  Today’s roundup offers some of the more eye-catching designs on the market today, from the timeless Fun 8 pendant chandelier from Verner Panton (which originally debuted in 1964 and is also available in a “Fun 4” version) to one of the latest offerings from Z Gallerie, with 230 interchangeable glass links.  While the purists among us might prefer the former, the latter offers endless possibilities — small and full or long and sinewy; symmetrical and chic or free-form and conversation-worthy. Somewhere in the middle, we have the highly reflective Hope Chandelier from Italy by way of Luceplan, and the urbane minimalism of the Ice Chandelier from ABC Carpet & Home.  Although all eyes will be on the ball in Times Square when it drops and signals the end of an era, you can feast your eyes on a brilliant ball of light of your own to illuminate your home in 2012.
