Swing from the sexiest chandeliers
If you thought chandeliers were only fit for stately homes, we’ve got news for you. They’ve been rebooted and are making one hell of a statement.
Prepare to be dazzled. We’ve found lighting so hot you’ll be slipping into your best undies and swinging from the chandeliers. While flicking through paint charts and fondling fabrics might get your creative juices flowing, think of lighting as the statement earrings that bring the look together.
Want to get in the mood for illuminated love? Well, we happen to have an award-winning lighting designer on our doorstep and the collection is dreamy. Tigermoth Lighting in Pangbourne is run by Harriet Daniels – an interiors obsessive with a background in engineering. She set up her riverside workshop to create lights with thousands of customisable options for clients to choose from – colour, size, shape etc. The results are feminine and fierce. So whether you’re looking for a dramatic table chandelier over your dining table, statement lighting in your living room or something sexy to swing from in the bedroom, Here are our four favourites…
Strong, elegant and dramatic. If Beyoncé did lighting it would look like this. The Fold is an array of folded brass shades, each one patinated to a dark bronze colour and hand-grained on the inside surfaces to reflect the light. The linear chandelier is the rock star of the collection having been crowned a winner at last year’s SBID Product Design Awards. Also available in a circular design and in brass.
The femininity of fringing with strength of chainmail, we are obsessed with this Chain chandelier for all its boutique hotel vibes. Pass me a Martini, because there’s choices to be made. Available in bronze, gold or flat Nickel metalwork, the chain fringing comes in four shades (silver, black, copper and gold), plus three shapes and up to five sizes. Perfection.
Bling it on! For lighting that’s as glamorous as it can possibly get, the Crystal collection catches the like a diamond. This addition is anything but understated in a room, but it’s bold, beautiful and created for the wow factor. This statement crystal chandelier is available in smoked and clear crystal glass, bronze, gold or flat nickel metalwork, rectangular and circular shapes with up to five sizes to choose from. It’s a stunner.
Statement lighting doesn’t have to be in-your-face. Simple, clean lines and elegant shades can speak volumes. The Stem chandelier is the interiors equivalent of a silk slip dress. The metal frame is handcrafted in bronze, flat nickels or gold and there a choice of stock and custom silks to perch on each arm.
