5 Modern Designer Chandeliers That Add The WOW Factor!

Lighting is an important aspect of interior design. Like paint, lighting has the power to make or break a room design. Without proper lighting, it is almost impossible to truly appreciate the interiors of a space. But lighting is not just functional, it can also be a design feature.

If you are thinking of using light as a style statement then chandeliers are the perfect way to showcase your personality and create an inviting and luxurious ambience in any room. Gone are the days when chandeliers were synonymous with heavy opulent regency style empire candelabras. Today modern chandeliers come in various shapes, sizes, styles and costs to suit almost every décor, budget and personal taste.

When choosing a modern chandelier for a particular room, think about the existing design of the space, the overall style of your home, the size of the room, ceiling height, functionality and use, colour of the piece, aesthetic appeal and about creating overall visual interest.

So from modern bubbles and glamorous spokes we've rounded up 5 of our favourite designer chandeliers from Replica Lights, that seamlessly combine functionality and style to create an unforgettable design statement in any room of your home!

The Classic
The Classic collection is elegant and timeless with understated glamour and luxury playing a key role. The muted pastel colour palette is lifted by the use of soft textures and balanced tones punctuated by velvet chairs in a bold peacock blue. The outdoor range in this collection features the popular Acapulco chairs and woven textures creating a luxurious and timeless look that would fit almost any home.
The Urban
The Urban collection is edgy and cool with versatile pieces in unique textures and bold and rich jewel tones. Almost industrial and masculine in design it's softened with cosy, natural textures and hints of rose gold. Featuring tactile materials like wire, black marble, faux leather and glazed surfaces it's easy to create a sophisticated urban interior with just a few of these pieces. For the great outdoors, the rattan furniture with complementary cushions in the same bold shades creates a luxurious inner city getaway vibe!

The Natural
The Natural collection is almost Scandinavian inspired with a cool and soft earthy colour palette, natural textures, organic materials and soft curves that fit seamlessly into our relaxed Australian lifestyles! Think blonde furniture pieces, soft linen sheets, velvet cushions, textured throws, matte black accessories lifted by gold accents and pops of coral and strong bamboo textures. Seriously, what's not to love!
