Why We Love Alabaster Chandeliers
There is something unique about each and every alabaster chandelier, and that uniqueness is found in the stone itself. Each piece is colored with aesthetic variations and swirling patterns that differ from stone to stone. Look for appealing veins of colors and different tones of opacity. Alabaster chandeliers cast a soft, universally flattering light that creates the perfect glow for romantic dinners, cozy nights in, and fun family gatherings. Pair them with alabaster pendant lighting to bring this enviable glow to spaces that are too small for chandeliers, or let them stand alone. And, whether your interior design style leans more towards an Art Deco, industrial, or farmhouse approach, your space will be complimented by these elegant, versatile alabaster chandeliers.
Where Modern Alabaster Chandeliers Work Best
As with any chandelier, you’ll want to hang an alabaster chandelier somewhere it can be appreciated. This large style of lighting works best at the focal point of a room where it’s the center of attention. They’ll look exceptional in a classical capacity, hung over a dining room table where the warm light they provide feels cozy and warm but not too informal. Suspend a large alabaster chandelier in a great room for an elevated space that still feels extremely welcoming and approachable. And, unlike the majority of chandeliers, this style feels just as at home in outdoor spaces as it does indoors. So, use a modern alabaster chandelier on a covered patio, porch, or gazebo. The stone adds a natural element that helps the fixture blend in with its surroundings.
Favorite Alabaster Chandelier Styles & Finishes
A classic is a classic for a reason, and alabaster bowl chandeliers are a classic. The elegant empire style chandeliers elevate the rough and rustic stone to create an impressively polished piece. These fixtures shine exceptionally brightly in Art Deco style homes but will find their place anywhere. For something more rustic, we love the chandeliers with wrought iron rings and marbled alabaster shades. They feel like the perfect union of utilitarian industrial styles and traditional design tendencies. And, we find that there’s something special about the more modern pieces with simplistic shapes and subtle incorporations of alabaster. Whether you’re looking for a piece that puts this stunning stone front and center or a fixture that takes a softer approach, you’ll find something to love here.
How to Choose the Perfect Alabaster Chandelier
When it comes to finding the perfect alabaster for your home, the most important thing to
keep in mind is the size of the fixture. When you’re purchasing such an elegant piece, like a chandelier, you want it to make a significant visual impact. However, this can be hindered if the light is too small or too large for the space it’s in. Too small and it will be lost in your other decor and it won’t provide adequate lighting. On the other hand, if it’s too large, it will look bulky and cumbersome in the tight space. So, measure your room and have an idea of size in mind before you start looking.
