I remember all those movies and the pictures I saw in books with the ball rooms and the imposing chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. I loved those chandeliers and I though (well, I still think) they looked great. However, they are only fit for huge rooms or halls because they would look ridiculous in a flat living room for example. Any way, if you have a big house with a high ceiling and it looks kind of empty to you, you can purchase a big chandelier – a modern one that will cover the space and will also be able to cast light over a larger space. This is the perfect example : Polished Brass Cubist Chandelier by Curtis Jere. It is obviously designed by Curtis Jere and also obviously made of polished brass.
Apart from this, this chandelier looks amazing and is cubist in shape, not necessarily style. It is modern and cool, even though it was designed back in the 1970s. Actually the inside of this chandelier is made of steel that is afterwards plated with brass in order to add some spark. The cubes get mingled and intertwined, forming a cluster of geometric shapes, great looking as result. It works with four big light bulbs and the light it casts is warm and nice thanks to the brass. The item can be bought from Center44 for $7,500.
