Chan­de­liers and pen­dant lights that will bring a beau­ti­ful shine to your in­te­rior

As the hol­i­day sea­son ap­proaches, there’s no bet­ter time than now to give your in­te­ri­ors an up­date, and glam­orous lamps are one easy way to in­stantly el­e­vate your liv­ing and din­ing spa­ces. From so­phis­ti­cated gold-plated pen­dant lights to shim­mer­ing mod­u­lar chan­de­liers, eye-catch­ing light­ing pieces will cre­ate a merry at­mos­phere in your home. These state­ment pieces with metal­lic fin­ishes have a time­less ap­peal that work well with a va­ri­ety of in­te­rior con­cepts. Here are the lu­mi­nous gems that we love. STYLISH SPHERE The Plane Chan­de­lier by Tom Dixon is an ac­cent lamp that will jazz up any space. This pol­ished brass-plated chan­de­lier has 18-dou­ble­lay­ered white glass spheres dis­trib­uted over four tiers, and is per­fect for foy­ers, liv­ing and din­ing rooms. The Plane is also avail­able in a smaller shorter ver­sion with just three spheres, and an elon­gated Drop ver­sion that has 14 spheres ar­ranged in a ver­ti­cal con­fig­u­ra­tion. CON­I­CAL FEAT De­signed by Dan­ish ar­chi­tects Claus Bon­derup and Torsten Tho­rup for Carl Hansen & Søn, the BT1091 Con­fetti is a set of two pol­ished brass pen­dants with slim, ge­o­met­ri­cally-in­spired shades. Fit­ted with a half-mir­ror light­bulb and an ar­ray of shades (in­clud­ing a brass op­tion), these pen­dant lamps re­flect light beau­ti­fully, and their el­e­gant, stream­lined shape makes them ver­sa­tile ad­di­tions to a va­ri­ety of in­te­rior styles.

THESE STATE­MENT PIECES IN METAL­LIC FIN­ISHES HAVE A TIME­LESS AP­PEAL THAT WORK WELL WITH A VA­RI­ETY OF IN­TE­RIOR CON­CEPTS

ETER­NAL FLAME Wind­fall’s Sissi Chan­de­lier com­bines the poetic beauty of can­dle­light with the el­e­gance of crys­tals and clean lines. De­signed with state-of-the-art in­te­grated LED, the crys­tal “flames” are lit from within, and re­fract light to cre­ate a glow as mag­i­cal as real can­dle­light. Time­less and ro­man­tic, this ex­quis­ite lamp works well in a din­ing room, and can cre­ate the splen­dor of by­gone eras in your home. SPI­RALS OF STYLE De­signed in 1969 by Verner Pan­ton, the Spi­ral pen­dant is an elab­o­rate chan­de­lier com­posed of gold cel­li­dor spi­rals. When a light breeze blows through the lamp, the re­flec­tive spi­rals sway ever so gen­tly, cre­at­ing in­ter­est­ing light play. Avail­able as a sin­gle pen­dant, a pair and a three-pen­dant set, this glit­ter­ing ac­cent piece is full of disco era charm. CREATIVE CIR­CLE Named af­ter the merry-go-round, Carousel by Bri­tish de­signer Lee Broom is a sleek pen­dant lamp that makes a strong vis­ual state­ment. Within the lamp’s 60 pol­ished-gold cylin­ders are in­set LED light­ing el­e­ments that give off a bril­liant and play­ful ring of light. Sus­pended from a match­ing pol­ished gold ceil­ing plate with steel ten­sile wires with a sin­gle clear ca­ble, this is a lamp that works won­der­fully with a va­ri­ety of de­sign con­cepts.

MOD­ERN CANDELABRA De­signed by Markus Jehs and Jur­gen Laub of Stuttgart stu­dio Jehs + Laub for Ital­ian light­ing brand Nemo, the Crown fam­ily of pen­dant lamps is a mod­ern take on the Euro­pean candelabra. Here, LED light sources in sand­blasted glass dif­fusers take the place of can­dles, as they sit within a mod­u­lar alu­minium and gold­plated struc­ture. The Crown is avail­able in 12 dif­fer­ent mod­els, so you can use them through­out your home in a uni­fied light­ing scheme. BY STARLIGHT De­signed in 1983 by Span­ish ar­chi­tect An­toni de Mor­a­gas i Spà for Santa & Cole, the Vaghe Stelle hasn’t lost any of its charm over time. In­spired by the min­i­mal­is­tic lamps of Adolf Loos and po­etry by Ital­ian po­et­philoso­pher Gi­a­como Leop­ardi, the Vaghe Stelle con­sists of two con­cen­tric brass rings that utilise glass stems po­si­tioned at dif­fer­ent heights. These hold as many as 18 car­bon fil­a­ment bulbs that ex­ude a star-like am­ber twin­kle. THE FAB­U­LOUS EGG Uovo is a breath­tak­ing chan­de­lier that Cze­choslo­vakian sculp­tor and prod­uct de­signer Rony Ples cre­ated for Lasvit that’s as much a work of art as it is a light source. Avail­able in two sizes, Uovo is an oth­er­worldly chan­de­lier com­posed of ti­ta­nium gold mir­ror-coated, egg-shaped orbs set around an LED light source. The Uovo is per­fect for spa­ces with high ceil­ings, such as the foy­ers or stair­wells in your home to show­case its beauty.

CRYS­TAL GLAM­OUR Great Gatsby- es­que glam­our comes to life with the Da Ma chan­de­lier by Ital­ian de­signer Mario Nanni for Vi­abiz­zuno. Nat­u­ral brass cal­en­dered pro­files are com­bined with crys­tal disc dif­fusers to cre­ate a lamp that em­bod­ies the el­e­gance and majesty of crys­tal chan­de­liers, with a stream­lined aes­thetic. The crys­tal dif­fusers cre­ate evoca­tive light­ing ef­fects that will help set the right mood for so­phis­ti­cated din­ner par­ties. SHINY WEB The De­sign Spi­der by Stu­dio Italia has a shiny spher­i­cal body with a round con­vex lens at­tached to one side. The sphere’s ad­justable lens ro­tates to 320 de­grees and tilts by 90 de­grees on the side, so you can direct light to just where it’s needed, down­wards or lat­er­ally. The lamp can be used a sin­gle pen­dant, or as part of a mod­u­lar range where you can cre­ate an in­fi­nite va­ri­ety of clus­ter com­bi­na­tions.
