Client Spotlight: Sailing Ship Crystal Chandelier

Among the antique and vintage chandeliers that we sell, we also sell many gorgeous new chandeliers and our best-selling new chandelier of all time is this stunning sailing ship crystal chandelier.   Our customer Konnee in Malabar, FL, recently bought one of the chandeliers and sent photos of it in her home, so we can see exactly why this beauty is so popular! Crystal Ship ChandelierThis is the large crystal ship chandelier, measuring more than 30 inches long. The  high-quality chandelier is terrifically detailed and lavishly adorned with glass crystals, along with six lights, some glass elements and antiqued bronze metal. Every time we get new stock in of the chandelier it sells out quickly because so many people love it for its exceptional sparkle and unique character.  If you click through on the crystal ship chandelier on sale on our website and it shows as out of stock, email or call us anyway, and we’ll make sure that you are first in line when we receive new stock in a few weeks!

crystal ship chandelier in dining roomHere is the chandelier in Konnee’s Florida home. She decided to hang it in her dining room. “I love it,” Konnee wrote to us. “I knew I would and it looks great.” We agree! It especially looks terrific against Konnee’s wood ceiling, which evokes the wood timbers of a ship on the high seas! Here is another angle on the ship chandelier in Konnee’s dining room. Look at how brilliantly it shines with all the gazillions of crystals! It looks amazing and we are so glad that she sent the photos because you can really see just how spectacular the sailing ship light looks in real life. It is the perfect finishing touch for a summer coastal cottage or a cabin on the lake,  and a great choice for any nautical themed decor. It will brighten up any room, whether you want to say “ahoy matey” in a beach themed bathroom, create a talking point and focal point in a living room,  or welcome guests with a jaunty piece of decor in your entryway.

Seeing the crystal sailing ship chandelier in Konnee’s home has made my day and put a smile on my face, which is what beautiful and unique design should always do. It’s also put me in the mood for spending a nice relaxing time by the ocean. Greg… when can we leave for summer vacation?

Light Your Home Beautifully: 3 Tips

Lighting can have a bigger impact on a room’s mood than even color or furniture. Those latter two attributes may give you a quick impression of a room’s decor — Victorian, mid-century modern, shabby cottage — but lighting can transform any design scheme from cool to warm literally with the flick of a switch.

Here are three tricks for creating mood with your home lighting.

When you choose a light fixture for your home, think not only about where you plan to locate it or the style of your decor but also about how the fixture will affect the way the light is displayed within the setting. For example, a large crystal chandelier makes a certain statement in its opulence, but it also tends to scatter bright light, which results in dazzling patterns dancing on the ceiling and walls. You can control the level of this effect by hooking your antique or vintage crystal chandelier up to a dimmer switch.

Stained glass wall sconces can create extraordinarily warm accent lighting, depending on the color of the glass. Enclosed sconces that mount flush against the wall tend to push light back against the wall, allowing only a small amount through the glass. This creates a cozy glow and sense of intimacy. Glitzy reproduction candle sconces, on the other hand, can cast a lot of light into a small area. These fixtures can help brighten large spaces.

Pendant fixtures come in an array of styles, and some of them act like sconces in that they push light toward the ceiling as well as directing light downward through the glass shade. These lights make great fixtures for entryways because they provide enough light to illuminate the darkness but also cast warm shadows onto the ceiling for a welcoming touch.

Of course, you always want to include a variety of light sources within your design scheme, including up lights that cast light up from the floor, floor and table lamps that illuminate their immediate surroundings, and chandeliers or flush-mount ceiling fixtures that cast light downward. By integrating each type of lighting into your design, you’ll be able to set any mood you desire.
