One thing we tend to love about lighting is that one fixture can change the look and feel of an entire room. Direct, overhead lighting placed in the middle of a room can make the mood very intense while accent lighting, provided by wall sconces and floor lamps placed around the perimeter of a room, softens the look. Diffused lighting or fixtures with dimmers can create a more intimate space while bright, overall lighting is task oriented and usually focused on a certain spot such as the kitchen counter.
Chandeliers are often thought of as more “formal” lighting but this beautiful fixture adds a wonderful rustic touch to the soothing palette of this living room designed by Anna Baskin Lattimore. The wrought iron frame works well with the dark, exposed ceiling beams and the candelabras lend a vintage touch. Love the pop of rust in the fringed throw pillows on the couches too!
This fixture resembles our Outer Banks Chandelier, part of our collection of Vintage Chandeliers. Representing designs from the Colonial and Victorian periods, these chandeliers offer elegant style with a rustic edge. The Outer Banks Chandelier is crafted from hand-worked wrought iron and accented with natural rope. It comes in four sizes from a 25″ wide, eight-socket model to a 32″ double chandelier with 18 sockets. Finished in a traditional Shipyard Bronze and chain hung, this fixture comes to you ready to hang — the light bulbs are included!
For a different twist on the circular chandelier, check out the Kitty Hawk Linear Chandelier. This fixture offers overhead lighting in a very straightforward fashion with eight authentic Edison Style Light Bulbs affixed to a 42″-long wrought iron frame. Finished in a traditional Copper Bronze, this chandelier will easily light up the game room pool table, garage workshop, kitchen island, or dining room table. This light also comes in a traditional round shape as The Kitty Hawk Chandelier.
