Of course, traditional tiered crystal chandeliers never go out of style and some manufacturers are adding a modern twist on the idea by creating pieces made of more organic materials such as wood or substituting wood beads for crystals. Many retailers, including several mentioned above, offer such chandeliers starting at less than $150.
White is red hot. White is the little black d ress of interior design. It is the most versatile shade on the color wheel – equally perfect for an urban loft, a cozy cottage, a kid-filled suburban home or a mountain retreat. White looks great with every wall color and can break up heavy dark wood tones, brightening a space with its color, as well as being a light source. All white glass and hand-cut white crystals bring a vintage feel to a chandelier and is easily paired with a modern room design. Beautiful wrought-iron floral in a high-sheen white finish gives a look that is both modern and retro. An all-white palette can define a vintage space or a sleek modern one.
Water is the Earth’s life source and 2017 has been a year for record-breaking rainfalls in some areas. Why not pay tribute with a light fixture designed to resemble rain?nTarget sells the Kenroy Home Rain Drop 3 Light Pendant Ceiling Light for those who want raindrops above, but not necessarily falling on their heads. Made with iridescent amber glass shades, the piece has a warm amber finish and is priced at $199.80, making it budget-friendly and stylish. Requiring three bulbs, the fixture must not take anything stronger than 60 watts.
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.
