Jazzmine Mathieu. Chandelier. January 03rd , 2018.
Location is everything. Chandeliers and pendants have gone mainstream and can be found all over the house. Every room is a blank canvas, just waiting for the right lighting fixture. Gone are the days of a single chandelier over your grandmother’s dining room table. Interest in home décor and design has led to the use of lighting fixtures in unexpected places. Try hanging two pendants hanging together over a breakfast buffet, a flea market style chandelier child’s playroom, mini chandeliers over bedside tables, a sassy chandelier to spice up the bathroom.
Be original: Remember when chandeliers used to be comprised of 1000 pieces of lead crystal and they usually cost enough to furnish your entire house? Today chandeliers have come a long way. They no longer have to made of crystal and beads. Nontraditional chandeliers can range from vintage glass bottles to sea shells! If you love crafts you can make your own from a light kit and your imagination. Your local arts and crafts or larger lighting stores will carry do-it-yourself light kits and have ideas for decorating it.
For those who remember the space race, the Paige 12-Light Sputnik Chandelier from Wayfair is reminiscent of the Soviet first satellite in orbit in 1957. With so many bulbs visible, this piece may require softer and lower wattage bulbs to overpower a room while still remaining a focal point. With a price of $349, this fixture is more than just a functional piece; it’s one that will remain a timeless reminder of man’s pursuit to conquer space.
The project is based on the idea that crystal makes a room more special and creates an outstanding point of reference. The beauty of this custom-made chandelier can be explained by the fact that each tiny piece of crystal features an impressive brilliance that refracts the light into a rainbow of colors spreading inside the room. Giving any room a warm and soft light, the custom-made chandelier becomes a beautiful piece of your personal universe.
