02 Nov Antler Chandeliers as Modern Design Inspirations
For many decorators the image conjured up by the word ‘antler’ is a cosy log cabin with a roaring fire, lots of plaid and furry rugs. But the world of design is embracing antlers and other natural materials into both ultra-modern and traditional settings. Objects that evoke nature are soothing and an essential element of Scandinavian Hygge design.
From chandeliers, to lighting accessories, clothing hooks, candle holders, table bases and seasonal decorations, there are limitless uses for antlers to complement any décor.
The open and free-form structures of antlers make chandeliers eye-catching centrepieces for any room. From simple, one-level lighting fixtures to multiple-level statement pieces, antler chandeliers are an easy way to introduce an open and elegant feeling. In the bedroom below the designer has used a natural coloured antler chandelier to bring the outside, inside. The neutral colours are the perfect complement to the furnishings.
If you are looking to create the same effect on a budget, then our faux resin Jane Antler Chandelier is an affordable fixture with a similarly attractive and curvaceous design.
Large antler pieces can also be used to bring in a new texture or fill a large wall with an interesting and natural object. The décor in this room could have drifted towards a piece of modern art or a mirror – instead the designer chose a stunning set of moose antlers to accentuate the peaceful and rustic setting.
Fallow deer antlers have a similar broad and bold shovel shape to them, and with our Dark Fallow Deer Antler Chandelier you can achieve an equally striking centrepiece for your room.
