Jazzmine Mathieu. Chandelier. January 12th , 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.
Upgraded Industrial: one of the lighting trends for 2016 is Lamps Plus’ “upgraded industrial”. According to a company press release, “the warehouse-inspired-movement-cum-mainstream design staple is seeing a bit of refinement.” Look for modern industrial lighting featuring rich tones and alternative metals. Don’t be afraid to invest in the industrial trend either — the look is here to stay for the next few years.
Shady characters. The addition of luxurious fabric shades to elegant chandeliers is like adding an enviable accessory to an already perfect outfit. The result is breathtaking. Structured shades paired with draping crystals creates a match made in lighting heaven. Fabric shades soften the glow of the light source, illuminating the room in a warm glow. Mixed textures of fabric, chrome and crystals draw interest and intrigue to the whole room with a fashion forward edge.
The project is based on the idea that crystal makes a room more special and creates an outstanding point of reference. The beauty of this custom-made chandelier can be explained by the fact that each tiny piece of crystal features an impressive brilliance that refracts the light into a rainbow of colors spreading inside the room. Giving any room a warm and soft light, the custom-made chandelier becomes a beautiful piece of your personal universe.
