Jazzmine Mathieu. Chandelier. December 25th , 2017.
Chandeliers are gorgeous in today’s interior design. You have the choice of keeping the traditional look of the past or starting a new trend of your own! For those that build their own fixture, ensure that you use the proper electrical wiring and non flammable supplies for your chandelier masterpiece. Chandeliers are just one more way to make your home dining experience a true treat.
What’s your décor style: Depending on your home, the dining area may be where your family congregates on Sundays for a huge dinner, or it may be an intimate area for you and a few friends. A chandelier should reflect your personal style and that of your home. For a casual dining room consider chandeliers with fabric lamp shades. Different than the typical lamp shade, dining room fixtures that hang down can be coupled with fabric and a down light. This casts a soft glow in the room and delivers directional lighting too.
The light installation is a teardrop-shaped chandelier with deliciously unique lights that celebrate the fascinating nature of raindrops, where no drop is the same as the next. Photographed by Lauren Coleman, the installation was imagined as a whole made of unique pieces: “Each drop is hand blown by artisans and intricately engineered to house the lighting strategy for the chandelier.” Working with UK-based glass-blowers and metal engineers to create the crystal tear-drops, designers fabricated each droplet after careful observation of real raindrops.
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.
