When you see a light sculpture designed to increase the visual appeal of a room and define its luminous character, you stop on your way to admire it. It’s the case of the Raindrop chandelier known as “The Pour”, a modern light sculpture meant to illuminate and beautify its chosen location in Tribeca, New York City. Lisa Hinderdael and Dara Huang of Design Haus Liberty worked on the design that was supposed to create a unique vibe in a living room featuring exposed industrial columns on either end of a dropped beam. According to the design brief, the light sculpture was supposed to “create an architectural relationship with the space” while beautifully hanging off the exposed beam.
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.
One of the most interesting things about watching the eclipse was witnessing the patterns of light as the moon moved in front of the sun, with various effects such as a starburst. World Market has created its own exclusive chandelier resembling that effect. The Brass Starburst Collin Chandelier, priced at $199, is both affordable and memorable. Made of iron with a matte brass finish, this fixture includes nine type B 25-watt light bulbs, offering rays of light that extend across the table.
