Spherical chandeliers (or pendants) add a wonderful touch to most any room. Lately I have seen so many wonderful examples in varying sizes and materials that I wanted to share a few favorites and some new ideas on where they fit best. If you think they are too modern, you are in for a pleasant surprise. They also come with traditional touches such as milk glass and brass details. And never forget how great a modern chandelier looks with a classic table!
At 21″ round, this is a nice sized sphere. The burlap and wrought iron combo has a bit of an Asian feel to it. It would look great over a modern glass table with a black base.
The Hood fixture is from Rejuvanation is a 1920′s reproduction. Comes in 12″, 14″ & 18″. Perfect for a foyer with hardwood floors and a warm oriental rug.
The Coral Pendant from Design Within Reach was created as an interpretation of patterns the artist saw in ice crystals as well as coral. Nature can’t be wrong. Right? Lovely over a simple white pedestal table in the foyer or dining room.
And lastly, this beautiful hand-hammered iron pendant. Mostly an accent piece with a lovely amber glow. I can picture this at a breakfast room table where you already have lots of natural light. In a world full of 6 and 8-arm chandeliers, consider going in a different direction the next time you have an empty ceiling to fill!
