Why We Love Leaf Chandeliers
Natural and chic, leaf chandeliers blend an unusual mix of elegance and organic influences to create dazzlingly unique fixtures. In this collection, you’ll see a little bit of everything from glass leaves to gold branches and bronzed ginkgo fronds. Some designers took an obvious approach while others let soft, graceful curves and implied movement give the feeling of falling leaves. Regardless of the designer’s intentions, modern leaf chandeliers are stunning fixtures, perfect for bringing new life into a space. Hang them in a foyer for a grand entrance or use them in a dining room to provide a relaxed but polished feel.
Decor that Works Well with Modern Leaf Chandeliers
Leaf chandeliers do not necessarily fall under one particular interior design facet. If you want to pair your home decor with your light we suggest basing your decisions off one particular feature of the light. For example, if you decide on a fixture with warm gold finishes, try to echo that feel in the rest of your decorative decisions, especially the lighting. A vintage gold leaf chandelier with a familiar candelabra shape will look best with traditional decor, while more designy pieces will look best with Art Deco or similar themes. Modern leaf chandeliers should be the center of attention, but it’s best to work with your existing decor and match the fixture to that than the other way around. And, thanks to our impressive selection, you’ll have no problem doing just that.
Favorite Leaf Chandelier Materials & Finishes
Contemporary designers left no stone unturned when it came to exploring different natural influences, and leaf chandeliers are a phenomenal example of that. Antique palm leaf pieces look just as at home along a shoreline cottage as they do in a tropical residence. Fixtures delicately adorned with carefully created glass leaves have a certain fantasy about them that looks ethereal without being too playful. And, the more contemporary options with subtler leaf-like appearances feel so naturally beautiful, that it makes it hard to pick a true favorite. Instead, we’ll say that all leaf chandeliers are our favorites because they’re all so different, it’s impossible to decide.
How to Choose the Best Leaf Chandelier
All chandeliers deserves to be seen, but when you’re aiming for such a statuesque piece you’ll want to make sure that it can be seen and appreciated from every angle. For this reason, we like to think big picture only when it comes to leaf chandeliers. And by big picture, we mean grand foyers, dining rooms, great rooms, and large open kitchens. Really we’re talking about anywhere that this fixture can be the star of the show. Measure your space carefully to make sure that the leaf chandelier you choose has plenty of space to shine. There are several smaller options that will work in more compact spaces, like above dining tables, in covered porches, or even bedrooms, if you’re feeling extra luxe.
There are plenty of other fixtures that possess the same natural elegance found in this collection here. Bamboo chandeliers and wood chandeliers have a slightly more relaxed feel than leaf chandeliers as their organic aspect comes from rustic wood instead of delicately crafted leaves. Twig chandeliers showcase delicate and intricate metalwork with impressive metallic branches making up the structure of these impressive lights. And, vintage chandeliers, have a similar antique feel as some of these lights, but in even more formal packages.
