Why We Love Spanish Chandeliers
A chandelier is an easy way to elevate the look of a room. Spanish chandeliers take it a step further with exquisite craftsmanship, modern designs and a warm light that bathes your home in a warm formal, yet rustic glow. In these collections, you’ll find bold iron welding, warm amber glass, detailed vintage accents, and classic candelabra shapes. Pair your modern Spanish chandelier with Spanish wall sconces or Spanish pendant lights for exceptionally exquisite home lighting. Reminiscent of regal castles, and updated with contemporary accents, these chandeliers will never be overlooked.
Where Spanish Style Chandeliers Work Best
If you want a simple chandelier that compliments your home’s decor but doesn’t stand out, look elsewhere. Spanish style chandeliers are strong, bold pieces that command attention, regardless of where they are. If you want to make the most of these stunning fixtures, hang them in a grand entryway or foyer where they’ll be the first thing you see when you walk into your home, and they can set the tone for the rest of your home decor. In a formal dining room, their regal presence will be appreciated by all who gather beneath it, and when hung above a cozy kitchen table vintage Spanish colonial chandeliers keep the space from looking too informal while their amber light warms the atmosphere.
Favorite Spanish Style Chandelier Shapes & Finishes
Because of their predominately classical influences, you’ll most often find Spanish chandeliers in the classic candelabra style. For this reason, we love the wagon wheel shapes that stand out from their counterparts with a more modern shape. They don’t completely abandon tradition though, often including classical elements like shaded lights, iron banding, and amber glass. We also love the impressively elegant pieces that embrace everything about traditional lighting with multiple tiers, ornate ironwork, and warm bronze finishes. With these stylish chandeliers, you’ll find impressive craftsmanship, vintage vibes, and stunning metalwork.
How to Choose the Best Spanish Chandelier
Style and size are the two most important factors to consider. Wrought iron Spanish chandeliers speak to vintage inspirations while pieces with polished metal finishes lean in a more modern direction. Similarly, amber glass feels more traditional, and clear glass appliques lend themselves towards a more contemporary atmosphere. You’ll also need to measure both the height of your ceilings and the available space to ensure that the chandelier has enough room to shine brightly and hang at an appropriate height. You can’t go wrong with style with these chandeliers, so focus on the particulars first.
You can bring this elegant lighting style outside the home with Spanish outdoor lighting. It’ll cast an extremely flattering glow on your outdoor landscapes and add a unique style accent. There’s something inherently elegant about the candelabra shape that defines most of these fixtures. Browse our selection of candelabra chandeliers to find similar pieces in different styles. Or, consider looking at Italian chandeliers, where the craftsmanship is found in the delicate, colored glass.
