Jazzmine Mathieu. Chandelier. January 03rd , 2018.
For those who remember the space race, the Paige 12-Light Sputnik Chandelier from Wayfair is reminiscent of the Soviet first satellite in orbit in 1957. With so many bulbs visible, this piece may require softer and lower wattage bulbs to overpower a room while still remaining a focal point. With a price of $349, this fixture is more than just a functional piece; it’s one that will remain a timeless reminder of man’s pursuit to conquer space.
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.
Customizable Color: Ingo Schaer of Interior Deluxe, a high-end modern lighting retailer, forecasts that its customers will be looking more and more to customize the shape of their lighting, and more importantly, the quality of light. Lighting like the crystal table lamp by Qis Design has the ability to change the color of light — from functional white to a warmer color to set the mood. But customizable lighting color doesn’t stop at warm or cool light. A spectrum of additional colors is often part of the package.
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.
