Industrial Loft - Chandeliers

An Industrial Loft style chandelier might sound like an oxymoron. Really, how does the most utilitarian, no frills approach to contemporary interiors and lifestyle find a place for something like a chandelier? Well it all depends on the chandelier itself and knowing a little bit of history. Chandeliers began life as very basic, wooden affairs that were strung by rope and served no other purpose than to light up large spaces. From the start, the utilitarian attitude, essential in loft style, has been there. Industrial style lofts, can seem cavernous when the sun has set, making the wide reaching illumination of chandeliers a perfect way to retain the grand sense of proportion and scale. From the most basic wrought iron pieces, to pieces crafted from found object art glass, to the most luxurious examples of chain metal swag, the options are as abundant as they are appropriate.
