Cool Antique Chandeliers
Cool chandeliers are often the signature pieces of any room since their imposing size and beautiful design always command attention. As one of the most versatile lighting fixtures in homes these days they don’t adhere to any one single trend and the sky is the limit when it comes to great looking options. The less is more concept can surely apply to lighting and often fixtures are not even notices for a reason.
Then again they are often ostentatious and meant to be the focal point of the room. Listed below are some of the most innovative and cool chandeliers we have seen recently that range from the surreal to the sublime in a wide variety of materials, bulb types, themes and sizes.
I really like the Disco Ball one that I am sure will bring back some great memories from the 70’s and the Barlite that will adorn many bachelor pads as long as beer remains the drink of choice. We hope you find a great looking design, and feel free to send us some of your finds as you look for the perfect style for your home.
UFO by Neues Licht
Neues Licht means “new light” in German, and we can’t think of a more appropriate name for this innovative lighting design company which creates futuristic lamps with fiber optics. Neues Licht wowed visitors at last week’s Cologne Furniture Fair with this fabulous UFO Chandelier made with fiberoptic cables arranged in a floating, glowing ring.
The designer, Simon Bruenner, describes his innovative chandelier as “simplicity from another planet,” and describes that its origin of light can be from the sun or in a different room altogether.
The Uma by Nemo Cassina
Uma by Nemo Cassina is a new take on the traditional chandelier. A concentric cascade of cones, offering the same lustre and visual magnificence as its traditional forebears, and an even greater sense of allure and mystique. Wet Bell is a hanging lamp that does not hang but is instead supported by a stem that descends from the ceiling and then curves back up.
