Why do we live so long with light fixtures (particularly ceiling mounted ones) that are outdated or are incongruent with the rest of the room design? I know I am as guilty as anyone.
Trends in lighting change just like everything else although some classic styles, like a crystal chandelier are always right in the right space.
While at the Atlanta gift show I spied lots of beautiful lighting styles, but I am including 2 new ones here so you won't go into decorating overload.
This lantern style is much bigger than it looks in the picture. If you had a large kitchen island, 2 or 3 of these would look magnificent!
What would you call this style? Lantern? Chandelier? It was very rustic, like pieces from an old oak barrel which is why my first thought was - use this in a wine cellar! It would also be great as a foyer chandelier in a casual home or anywhere you have a sort of lodge look.
