Do you associate chandeliers with an older, more traditional style of décor? We don’t blame you if you think of Buckingham Palace when you hear the word ‘chandelier’, but the fact is that there are plenty of modern chandeliers out there that live up to our current expectations for design!
While it’s true that a lot of modern chandeliers are inspired by their grandiose predecessors, most of them have had a modern makeover that has resulted in a significantly more modern style. A lot of chandeliers are based on small references to the days of yore, designed to give your modern home a bit of an edge, while other chandeliers defy every preconceived notion of this kind of lamp. Their expressions tend to be experimental and daring, unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. These chandeliers are beyond unique.
These lamps tend to be upscaled versions of pendants or consist of a combination of pendants or light sources. Chandeliers are usually suspended from the ceiling and intended to illuminate the entire room, and they tend to be a fixture in large halls, living rooms, dining rooms, public or private offices, and any other spaces that allows the lamp to come into its own.
Do you want to experience the magic of a chandelier and add a touch of modern design to your décor? No matter your aesthetic, you’re bound to find a lamp that delivers those two elements to perfection below.
Hope – Luceplan
The grand and experimental Hope
lamp from the Italian Luceplan is at once a classic and a reinterpretation. The chandelier is inspired by the traditional Milanese prism chandeliers, but the materials used, not to mention the design itself, are brand-new. Instead of using glass prisms, the chandelier is made from specially cut polycarbonate sheets that have the same doubling and reflective properties. The design is simple and innovative.

Plane – Tom Dixon
This modern, graphic lamp combines three of the biggest trends of our time – brass, chandeliers, and molecule lamps. The glowing metal material forms a wonderful contrast to the light, Nordic décor while the numerous light sources in the molecular structure adds an almost magical atmosphere. This unique shape ensures that the lamp is a product beyond compare, and that looking at it is an experience in itself.

Mesh Pendant – Luceplan
Another unique and experimental lamp from Italian Luceplan. The theatrical grandeur of the chandelier commands immense attention. The concept is based on the classic chandeliers formed by combining numerous light sources. This new interpretation might have the same basic structure, but the new and exciting pattern makes the lamp look as though it is floating in air.

Anoli 3 Chandelier – Nuura
Nuura’s popular Anoli
collection has just been released in an opal glass version. This chandelier from the Danish design firm consists of three Anoli pendants that make up the larger chandelier. The delicate, white opal glass has been assembled using a golden socket, an assembly point to which the lamp owes its calm expression. The Anoli 3 Chandelier is the perfect fit for the minimalist, Scandinavian style where simplicity and practicality are absolutely key.

Pliverre – Le Klint
