Black Chandelier

I suppose my love for black chandeliers comes from the versatility of the product. Many rooms are incorporating black elements naturally and it should be equally natural to dress the room with a black chandelier. Sadly it is rarely the case. There are various degrees of “blackness” within black chandelier designs and therefore plenty for you to choose from.

My favourite at the moment is chandelier 87003-10/02HK which is a half way chandelier as it is only partially black. This is achieved by laminating – a clear glass is coated by black glass and then cutting into the black layer to reveal the clear glass. This is highly skilled, time consuming procedure which however produces stunning pieces. The bobeches almost resemble a water lily and even the central stem is designed to complement this shape. This chandelier has three trimming variations: all black trimmings,

clear trimmings on dishes but black at the lower section

and all clear trimmings.

Your choice would be influenced by the other features within your design to achieve the right balance of colour and also to make sure that the chandelier isn’t too heavy and doesn’t pull the attention right to the centre.

 

The next best conservative chandelier option would be clear with black trimmings.

This is a fabulous option as you can choose any chandelier you like and just have the trimmings changed.

Another thing you can do is to buy completely clear chandelier plus extra coloured crystals so you can revert to neutral should you choose to change your colour scheme again.

This black Maria Theresa will not scream at you however it will make a very bold statement. The beautiful chandelier is produced by the top Bohemian manufacturer, which employ only the best of designers. The great feature of this chandelier is the multiplicity of applications. If you have a black marble surface in your kitchen or one with black colouring within the surface then this black chandelier is perfect. However this black chandelier would not be out of place in your:

A) bedroom – say grey and black patterned wallpaper on you accent wall, remaining walls grey and understated, white bedding with grey and black cushions… ,

B) dining rooms – white table with black table ran and black plates , few exceptional dressing pieces strategically scattered around the room in prominent places such as fireplace, window sill or any other dining room furniture.

C) Study – just black desk as a base piece and you can play around with the room in many ways. It is however rather important to select the right period base piece as this determines the tone of the whole room. Buy this I mean that if you chose for instance an art deco desk it would be right to add Georgian complimenting pieces. It is not impossible, but only very few people can pull it off.

The simple black chandelier can simply be placed in any room, perhaps with the exception of bathroom where you need an advice from your electrician with regards of zones.

So if you do incorporate black into your design please think of the black chandelier and give it a chance.
