There’s nothing that says glamour quite like a chandelier. Multi-armed, multi-faceted and glittering, their traditional homes in entrance foyers and over dining tables make quite the impression. We’ve put together 45 modern takes on the chandelier, built in a variety of materials and décor styles. Hang a silver chandelier that forms a straight line, with LEDs through their centres. Build a chandelier from desk lamps, creeping together to form a spider. Fan your chandelier into a Sputnik, with golden rods that peek out over your desired space for dining. Open imagination and light up your home with these modern, non-conventional chandeliers.
