Lighting can be sculptural: Often times chandeliers are thought of as brightly illuminating a space. Recently chandeliers have taken on a lighter and airy nature in forms of small candles and subtle lighting sources. Your dining room may be in an open floor plan concept and it receives plenty of light. Use chandeliers as artwork and sculpture as opposed to having to be the obvious lighting source. The more you blur the lines of traditional and contemporary the more you will love your dining room space! Local artisans in your area may have creative chandeliers to make your dining room unique and special.
The impressive dimension of the Swarovski Crystal Chandelier makes for a perfect integration within the Palace of Versailles. Displaying a minimalist elegance, the piece adds a valuable visual contrast to the chamber and is particularly interesting to observe in detail. The installation descending from the ceiling resembles a gold chain necklace; it is no wonder that the grand Palace of Versailles inspired Swarovski to create jewellery at a large scale. Have a look at the video below for a better understanding of the project and its context!
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.
Next time you visit the Palace of Versailles, be on the lookout for this impressive permanent contemporary Swarovski chandelier envisioned by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. The Gabriel Chandelier measures 12 meters in hight and weighs half a tonne. Moreover, the installation is composed of 800 crystal modules, threaded around a stainless steel skeleton containing a led lighting system.
