Interior Obsessions – Chandeliers

Last week’s jaunt into Interior Obsessions with FormFire Glassworks took us through a look at Chalkboard Paint. Today we’re shifting from walls and doors to lighting ““ in particular, that special light called the chandelier. For years, I had a negative connotation with the word; chandeliers were fussy, old-fashioned, and often real eyesores, at least those found in the local lighting or home store. Typically denoting a hanging fixture with multiple light sources, originally a set of candles, today’s definition of a chandelier is a much broader one.

I’ve even grown to appreciate the old-style chandeliers with the hanging crystals and fake candle-bulbs, at least when juxtaposed with more modern furnishings. Modern chandeliers range from hanging collections of lights and repeated sculptural elements to minimalist armatures and geometric crystal formations. Anything that hangs and has multiple lights or other elements can be considered a chandelier in today’s world of home decor. Whether it is gracing a dining room table, lighting the entry foyer, or hanging above your living space, there are options out there for every taste.

I love these chandeliers Amy, especially the sequin one. Amazing!


Thank you! I think my favorite from this bunch may be the glass bubbles, but I’m looking to replace a light in a two-story entry, so that may be why!
