Trend Alert: Updated Ornate Chandeliers

If you think ornate chandeliers look best hanging in your grandmother's house, then allow me to shed some light on a hot trend. Lately, an endless array of modern home stores and edgy designers are giving the old-fashioned chandelier a modern update. Depending on the look, these fixtures work just as well in traditional decor as they do in modern homes.

All of the new chandeliers follow traditional forms but offer clever variations on the theme: I especially love this printed Nicolette Brunklaus Ceiling Lamp Chandelier ($395, above left). Other designers are mixing it up with unlikely materials, including rubber and acrylic, or bold color, as with this Design Within Reach Murano Glass Chandelier ($2,900, above right). For the rest of my finds, click on the photos below.

these are gorrrrgeous...and if my ceiling wasn't so low that I'd probably knock into it everytime I woke up in the morning...I'd so put one in my bedroom!

based on the last two articles on hot home trends from casasugar, it seems like they're just looking at the urban outfitter's website to figure out what's hip.

I love chandeliers but may have to settle for a wall graphic of one until I move into more accomodating digs.

Hey, you can hit a garage or yard sale and buy an old one, take off the prisms and tape up the electrical outlets, etc., and you can spray any color you want. If the fixture is too old, have an electrician check out the writing. You can find old chandeliers sometimes for $20-$50 at a yard sale, personalize it, and even add mini shades. Try it!
