Why We Love Cage Chandeliers
Cage lighting chandeliers are loved by homeowners of all design preferences. From utilitarian industrialist to Art Deco fanatics, these fixtures are widely appreciated. It could be its unique and distinctive silhouette or its wide range of shapes and styles, but regardless of the reason why, cage chandeliers are extremely popular. Their cool, contemporary exteriors form an airy yet elegant fixture that makes a statement wherever you decide to install them. Hang them in a foyer to set the tone for the rest of your home, or use them more conventionally above a dining room table. They’ll give a formal space fun characteristics and dress up a casual room with their elegant presence. Put these lights to work because they are just as practical as they are pleasing.
Decor that Works Well with Cage Chandeliers
Thankfully, these lights are available in many different design styles. In this collection, you’ll find classic cage lighting chandeliers with a traditional air and modern options with sleek appearances. Pair them with caged pendant lights or caged wall lights for cohesive home lighting, but they also shine brightly as solo stars where their unique composition can really stand out. You can also use several of these lights throughout your home. Although we suggest sticking to a similar style as to not make things too busy.
Favorite Cage Chandelier Colors & Finishes
All cage chandeliers boast impressive structural attributes. You could say that it’s just in their nature. Whether it’s a simplistic rectangular cage chandelier or a more exotic drum shapes piece, each light offers something unique to add to your home decor. For a cool and chic industrial look, opt for an uncomplicated fixture with a plain, but bold black boxy frame. Look for slightly mottled finishes to give the light a slightly rustic look, or opt for a smooth and shiny black finish to complement the more utilitarian decor. On the other hand, there’s something inherently polished about the spherical cage pendant lights. Find a golden piece with traditional metalwork to enjoy a light that feels like it exists in both past and present. Or, look for an intricate chrome frame that houses delicate but beautiful lights for something a little more elegant.
How to Choose the Best Modern Cage Chandelier
Although compact is likely not the word most would use to describe cage chandeliers, in comparison to some of the really large and ornamental fixtures that we have, these pieces are relatively compact. This does not mean, however, that you can neglect measurements. Pay special attention to both the size of the fixture and your space to ensure that your cage chandelier has all the room it needs to shine. Rectangle and long oval-shaped fixtures are best for narrow spaces while the globe and trapezoid shapes work best when they have a little wiggle room.
For similar aesthetics, but even more, options, consider taking a look at our collection of both lantern chandeliers and wrought iron chandeliers. They offer a similar cage-like feel, but with more traditional design inspirations. In our selection of wrought iron chandeliers, you’ll find bold ironwork, similar to these caged pieces, but with the addition of glass shades or candelabra arms. Industrial chandeliers encompass many of the fixtures seen here, but you’ll also find plenty of wagon wheel and drum options to choose from.
