We’ve come a long way in terms of hanging lights from the candle-topped, wooden cross chandelier depicted in King Rene’s Tournament book written in 1460, which is only natural. The days of hanging crystal chandeliers are definitely gone. Today’s chandelier designers draw their inspiration from everything under the sun and the sea and range from magnificent to pleasantly simplistic.

Regardless of your decorative tastes, you’re sure to find an eye-catching chandelier you’ll love above. And, for those who have a future in modern home lighting design, we hope to illuminate your mind to see endless, creative possibilities.

In this cluster you’ll find everything from octopus lighting and cubicle chandeliers to shimmering bottles and even a chandelier made from recycled scraps of food.

From Funky to Classic, These Lights are Fantastic:
