Jazzmine Mathieu. Chandelier. December 24th , 2017.
Focal point of the dining room: Chandeliers that are the main attraction of the dining room will never go out of style. Often times an antique fixture in a modern dining room, or a red chandelier in a predominantly white room will give you added visual appeal. Chandeliers can be the centerpiece of discussion at the table or they can be subdued and blend in beautifully with the surroundings.
“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.”

Regardless of whether your heart is firmly planted here on the ground or you dream of the universe beyond, the choices for what you hang in your home to shine down on you are abundant.
