The chandelier is having a moment in 2017. But this time, their new modern edges gel well with contemporary interiors. No longer confined to grandparents' homes or houses full of notions, chandeliers have considerably more cool now, and come in far more varieties and styles than the traditional ones that come to mind when you think of a chandelier.
Choosing the right lighting is all about harmony with your existing interiors taste and creating ambience. However, where harmony is important, lighting is also an element that allows you to make a real style statement – and there’s nothing like a chandelier to do just that.
While the word, itself, might conjure up a Gatsby-esque ostentatiousness, modern chandeliers come in all shapes and sizes, bringing them right up-to-date for 2017. They add completion to a space like a piece of jewellery finishing off an outfit.
