Chandelier Styles To Inspire And Delight

Nothing adds style like a great chandelier. Glam it up with shimmering crystal or go rustic with wrought iron or wood. When choosing be careful not too go too small. Remember it will be the only thing on the ceiling and all that space around can gobble it up and make it stand out for all the wrong reasons. Scale is important and proportion is key for ceiling lights.

We can help you to choose the correct size. A chandelier is decorative not functional. Use it to make a design statement not to light up the room like a football pitch! It is a key element in the layering of your lighting design. Chandeliers aren’t just for a living room or dining rooms; they can make the most unusual rooms that little bit extra special. A bathroom rated chandelier over the bathtub makes for the ultimate in luxury at an affordable price.

Contact us for a bespoke wish list of bathroom rated chandeliers. If your bathroom has a high ceiling the light fitting will hang above the required bathroom regulation height and so you use any hanging chandelier.

Romantic & Atmospheric Lighting For The Bedroom

Add romance and drama to the bedroom – over the bed, so stylish in conjunction with a tall headboard or hang small chandeliers either side of the bed as an alternative to bedside lamps. Hang a vintage chandelier in a baby’s nursery for a cute but still sophisticated look and pair with dimmable wall lights for a calming ambience.

Modern chandeliers have come a long way from the traditional crystal chandeliers of yesteryear. However, those Dutch Flemish brass chandeliers also known as Dutch ball chandeliers that were created in Holland in the 15th century have stood the test of time magnificently. Originally, they were handmade polished brass or silver chandeliers. These were high status objects, a stunning example of a brass decorative Flemish statement chandelier takes pride of place in Jan Van Eyck’s wonderful painting, Arnolfini Wedding Portrait.

Amazing to think you can still buy similar large beautiful chandeliers today and indeed we stock many examples of these elegant chandelier type lights, a great example are our Antwerp range of chandeliers and for a large, high ceilinged room with decorative cornicing. The Antwerp 12 light antique brass chandelier would add drama and elegance. Van Eyck’s painting depicts the luxury chandelier in the bedroom and as this is such a versatile style of light fitting it can be used in any room.

A statement chandelier for the lounge or a multi armed candelabra style in the dining room above a dining table or a small hallway chandelier. This elegant chandelier style never dates and indeed can be easily brought up to date by changing to colour to a contemporary grey or cream as in our Flemish 8 light painted chandeliers. These simple and yet elegant chandeliers look wonderful in a kitchen over a table or kitchen island and add a touch of country Scandi flair.

Modern Chandeliers - See In a Fresh Light

When looking for your perfect chandelier don’t be afraid to think outside the box.

The simple lines of a contemporary chandelier can complement and work beautifully against a classic background.

We can source a vast area of chandelier lighting fixtures… be it a globe chandelier with crystals, modern chandelier lighting, a large modern chandelier, a contemporary glass chandelier, small chandeliers, modern large chandeliers, and ultra- modern LED chandeliers.

BoHo, Spohisticated, Industrial? - You Choose

One of our most unusual chandeliers is the opposite of the idea of the crystal sparkly chandelier. Our Celeste white wood bead chandelier is composed of necklaces of neutral whitewashed wooden beads that evoke a cool Boho, hippy vibe. This handcrafted pendant chandelier emanates a gentle diffused light when lit. This wooden chandelier can be mixed with many different design trends from rustic to relaxed elegance.

There is no end to the design possibilities of a multi-armed chandelier. From the decorative sophistication of the Garbo bronze chandelier with black shades lined in gold made by David Hunt, to the contemporary soft industrial modern black chandelier that is Mercer with its ball glass shades, and our own Rocke Eden 9 light antique silver chandelier with delicate foliage dancing across the arms. We also have other examples of pretty chandeliers with crystals and can source an infinite variety of crystal chandeliers with Swarovski crystals and K5 crystals or the cheaper crystal products but none the less still impressive affordable chandelier with acrylic drops, perfect for your home.

David Hunt Chandeliers

At Cotterell & Co we love quirkiness. Another range that packs a theatrical punch whilst being at the same time immensely practical and versatile is the Antler range again by David Hunt.

Made out of resin moulds of real antlers, this is an immense range in different finishes and in different colours with something to suit every size of room from the small chandelier to suit smaller rooms with lower ceilings – Antler bleached 3 light chandelier with cream linen shades to the vast Antler Rustic 17 light Chandelier in a highland rustic finish with bronze metalwork. This huge, stunning chandelier is handmade, and hand painted to order in the Cotswolds.

Under our house-brand Rocke we have designed a wide range of exclusive chandeliers notably the aforementioned Eden. Our globe chandelier, Orion 4, 6 and 10 light spherical chandeliers are made up of interlocking spheres that orbit the pendant interior, finished in chrome or bronze. This unusual round item successfully combines minimalism and traditionalism. A new addition to our Rocke chandeliers is the sophisticated yet modern Flemish style Bruges 8 light in matt black, which also comes in an antique brass finish. Contemporary simple statement chandeliers don’t come any better than our Hallburn 8 light, with individual cotton shades, or our newest creation from Rocke, the Circa wraparound shade. This contemporary classic chandelier is perfect for high or lower ceilings as it can be converted to become a flush fitting chandelier. We designed this to suit large rooms in modern houses as there is a shortage of choice for big chandeliers for lower ceilings.
