The means by which man travels through space has held particular interest for many. For the former kids who built spaceships out of Legos, Lampsplus.com has a fantastical yet simple chandelier. The Elan Starship LED Pendant Light, priced at $1,118, can be considered an investment for those who crave something out of the ordinary. This fixture is energy-efficient and uses 1,782 lumens (with 85 CRI), comparable to a 100-watt incandescent bulb. The overall effect is one of a softer light, creating a quiet yet modern ambiance.
“The drop itself is constructed of two parts: the brass screw cap, which houses the light, and the hand-blown crystal reflecting the light to create puddles on the floor below. To replicate the nature of raindrops, no two drops are blown identical. The name “The Pour” derives from the distinctive shape that the chandelier forms: an exaggeration of the dramatic motion of water pouring out of a carafe. Designed by forming a grid mimicking how puddles ripple outward in concentric circles, each teardrop is hung to brass pipes of varying lengths. Placed strategically on the grid, the teardrops lock into the mirrored base that fits seamlessly between the two existing columns. The mirrored base reflects the teardrops endlessly into the sky above and when lit. The chandelier echoes rain frozen in time with ephemeral puddles overlaid on the floor below.”
The Ceiling Lights Wood from Threshold, available through Target, manages to be both contemporary and traditional. Priced at $147.28, this chandelier is an easy and affordable way to bring a modern and rustic feel to any room. Find this look in several of today’s top design magazines; a sign your choice is on trend and on point.
Color-infused glass. Fixtures made of solid glass appeal to homeowners with a modern eye for design. Soft, neutral colors accent the room without overwhelming it. All glass chandeliers are an alternative to traditional light fixtures, though the shape is traditional, the use of all glass makes it edgy. Blue is today’s new neutral lending a quiet sophistication to any room.
