For many, a clean and sophisticated look is all they want in their home. Modern interior design deserves the beauty of a chandelier above the dining room table or in the front hall, and there are thousands of contemporary chandelier styles available.
Silver is a popular finish for the modern chandelier, and clear glass and crystal serve the clean and minimal design very nicely.
This six light Allure chandelier, for example, comes in that popular satin nickel finish that everybody loves for their modern homes. Manufacturers say it’s what they sell the most.
The Sutton Collection presents a chandelier draped in blue Murano crystal drops. The frame is made of wrought iron. It has a traditional construction, but the bright colors are definitely funky enough to work with a modern decor. It would look magnificent near a bright blue pool.
The Vegas chandelier dazzles with its illuminating showy style. It has the glitzy factor that makes an otherwise plain room come to life.
Il Maestro chandelier from Triarch demonstrates how even a gold finish can look modern. I love how the glass shades look almost like candles bound together in gold.
The Solaris Collection’s chandelier in silver is stunning work. If you’re a chemistry teacher or just a science enthusiast, you might find this shape apt for your individual style.
It exudes the simple elegance of the future, this Cylindique chandelier manufactured by Triarch International.
This crystal white chandelier is cast in wrought iron. It looks like a disco ball dressed up to the nines. I could see this hanging in a trendy New York City club, maybe six of them spaced out above the bar.
The English bronze chandelier’s star shape grabs everybody’s attention. The bronze looks old fashioned, but the design is very modern. My brother used to love welding sculptures in that style and he always called it his modern art.
Some of my friends have done interesting projects in the past. One of them took a papasan chair frame, decorated it with Christmas lights and turned it upside down. There is a very thin line between modern art and contemporary lighting, and I think we should smudge that line as much as possible.
