Rooms from the Galerie Archives Where the Lighting Makes as Much of a Statement as the Art
Discover the designers crafting spaces around entrancing, gravity-defying chandeliers and pendants in the homes of top collectors
Gone are the days when the only way to make a statement through lighting was with a formal crystal chandelier. Many designers are increasingly turning to light fixtures as another medium to further convey a room’s artistic expression. While several designs find inspiration in nature, be it clouds or branches, numerous styles are purely geometric and abstract. Some fixtures work in tandem with a space’s architecture, and others create a striking visual moment in a room otherwise lacking a focal point. No matter the size or shape, light fixtures suspended in midair possess a rare, gravity-defying quality and lure the eye upward. Ahead, discover ten interiors from Galerie’s archives that showcase sculptural lighting at its finest.
