If you only associate chandeliers with mansions and posh hotels, it’s time to think again. Vintage chandeliers are very much back on trend right now and no longer confined to the homes of the rich and famous. In fact, there are lots of ways to incorporate vintage chandeliers in your home decor. Retro design is bang on trend so it’s a great way to add a touch of flair and individuality. Here at Interior we’ve got an interesting array of vintage chandeliers that would look glorious in any home. From big and bold to understated elegance, our online catalogue offers a great variety of styles. Check out our collection today and be inspired.
Choosing a vintage chandelier for your homeIf you’ve never considered buying a vintage chandelier for your home, the idea can be quite intimidating. However, if you take a look at Vinterior you’ll see that not all chandeliers are huge crystal features designed only for grand country homes and palaces; there are plenty of options for all kinds of different interiors and décor styles.
You’ll need to choose a chandelier to suit the decor of your room. If you’ve got an ornate design, such as Rococo or French, a crystal chandelier could be the perfect partner. However, if your decor is more minimal, an angular cubic chandelier inspired by Gaetano Sciolari, such as those made by Tappital, could look stunning.
It’s not all about the style though as it’s important to get the size right, too. A chandelier may be a piece of statement lighting but you need to ensure it doesn’t overwhelm the room. If you’re in a dining room, the chandelier should never be wider than the table as people could bang into it when getting up and down. If you don’t have a huge amount of space, an alternative type of lighting such as pendant may be a better option.
How to use vintage chandeliers to best effectChandeliers are quite different from other types of lighting as the end effect can be quite dramatic. The idea is always to show your home off in the best possible light so consider whether the brightness is suitable; too bright and everything will look pale and washed-out.
As a chandelier can provide a lot of light, on some occasions this may make the room look too bright, especially if you are trying to create a certain ambience. You can avoid this by making sure you don’t purchase high wattage bulbs and if possible, combine a chandelier with a dimmer switch.
When choosing your chandelier style, consider how it will sit in relation to people. Chandeliers can shine light either up or down; if you’re choosing a chandelier for a dining table, try to avoid those which would shine directly downwards onto your dinner guests. Not only can this create an unflattering glare, it can also get quite hot for the person sat underneath.
