It’s All So Clear

Wednesday, November 16, 2011 | Category: Lighting, Shops and Showrooms

I am a sucker for all things glass- especially glass chandeliers! Whether it be Murano or just your normal translucent beauty, I’m game for either.

It was pure luck that I found this glass chandelier for my dining room on a shopping trip to Canton for only $125 (ok, my sister in law found it for me) but either-or, we couldn’t believe no one had snatched it up yet!

Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for glass chandeliers for clients and have been sourcing every one from here to Europe. If you have been on a hunt for one for yourself, my favorites list below should make your search much more “clear”.

Of course, glass chandeliers can come in almost any color, but I do have to say that I like the clear ones best.  Whether your decor is modern or traditional, you really can’t go wrong with any of these beauties-

This one from Currey has a slight gray tint, but it’s not very noticeable at all in person.  I thought it was completely clear when I first saw it. I love the shape! It also comes in a larger version.

They don’t ship overseas, but I’m seriously thinking about getting this chandelier somehow couriered over here for a client!  It’s at a great price and comes in three different sizes-

Graham and Green Italian Glass Chandelier

This chandelier is a classic and I recently used this in my client Angela’s gray-green dining room-

Visual Comfort- George Chandelier

Up until a few months ago, Z Gallerie had the Calais chandelier in clear glass, but now it only comes in black and aqua. It was such a steal at only $399.  If you are listening Z Gallerie, please bring it back in clear!

The Moritz has always been a personal favorite of mine…

Now here’s one on sale..

William Sonoma Ashbury Chandelier

And of course we can’t forget to mention the queen of glass chandeliers…Jan Showers! Hers is the real deal-

Sophia Chandelier

Here’s a whole new look to the glass chandelier that would work well in a more contemporary setting with tall ceilings-

I think I’d like the Graham and Green too. Let me know if you are planning to get one!

I like the Z Gallerie Chandelier, too. But when I saw the William Sonoma Ashbury Chandelier, Philippe Starcks Marie Coquine Chandelier came into my mind, my absolute favorite. You can find some pics via google. And if you are looking for really romantic clear glass chandeliers, I recommend you chandeliers by the Italian lighting manufacturer Gallery, such as Gallery 488 L8, Gallery 710 L6 and Gallery 3517 S1, just to name some. I like them because the light bulbs are not visible at first sight and don’t affect the appearance of the beautiful chandeliers.

Did anyone order the Graham Chandelier and how was it shipped to the US? Love it, love it, don’t know how much it would cost to have it shipped. They did not reply to my email request.

Open for any other suggestions on something similar.
