Shedding the Light on What's HOT!
What’s new in the world of chandeliers? Well, what isn’t?
The trend is looking beyond the dining room and now you can find them in bedrooms, living rooms and even bathrooms.
With a wide array of styles, shapes and sizes, there are more options now than ever before. They are now being designed to go beyond just adding light and ambiance to a space; the limitless options available now can truly reflect the personality of the home AND homeowners!
Gone are days of the traditional chandelier draped with cut crystals or subdued with neutral cream coloured shades.  Along with the traditional, we’re now seeing geometric shapes in gold, silver, pewter, and rustic metals. Even the shades have joined in; they’re no longer mini tapered lampshades. There’s drum shades, oblong with straight sides, mylar plastic with cut out patterns, and colour and material options like we’ve never seen!
I dare you to not find one that suits your personality and that of the room it will hang in.

This Foucalt’s Twin-Orb crystal chandelier is a perfect example of old meets new. Combining the basis of the traditional candelabra chandelier with the geometrics of the Foucalt’s orb and finished in polished nickel, this stunning piece is transitional in the true sense of the word; easing seamlessly into both formal and contemporary rooms.

The simplicity of this fixture and a shade form out of aged steel, combine contemporary with rustic; making this a great option for a trendy loft or a warm and casual eating area.

The traditional chandelier is taken up a notch with the ‘Liza’ pendant lamp. A sheer shade adds an unexpected softness, making this a great option for those that don’t have a separate formal dining room. For a more dramatic look, you can purchase it with a black shade too!
Available at Urban Barn.

I love the oblong shape of this chandelier. The simple hardware and tailored shade (also available in red, grey and black) are given a touch of elegance with cut crystal drops, making it a perfect choice for both contemporary and traditional settings!

Simple, clean lines make this fixture ideal for contemporary spaces. The nickel hardware gives it a bit of an industrial feel making it ideal for an urban loft and its unassuming design would even work well in a kitchen.
