Chandeliers with unexpected accents | Furniture Lighting and Decoration

Lighting can be the jewel of the house, especially when it comes to the centerpiece – the chandelier. When it comes to lighting, it’s all glass, light source and metallic finishes. In this month’s lighting gallery, however, we focused on the unexpected elements that can be found in lighting styles – leather, wood, reclaimed materials and more.

Below are a few options when looking for that unexpected accent in a fixture that you know will resonate with your clients or customers.
