From an energizing morning light to soft, sultry evening glow, the proper lighting has all the power to impact the vibe of each room in your home. Lighting is one of the most important — yet most often overlooked — aspects of interior design, particularly when speaking of overhead fixtures. Not only is it the glow they cast, but the piece themselves that can elevate a room in a truly sublime way. The right chandelier helps draw the eye upward, adding vertical interest to a room, and can make a powerful style statement.
But we get it, it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why our designers’ have rounded up the top ten best chandeliers in a range of styles, from boho-cool to ultra luxe, to take your ceiling moment from drab to fab.
Bohemian light fixtures tend to feature warm and natural tones — think clay, terracotta, and ivory — paired with muted earth tones of cerulean blue, sage green, or blush pink. Often accompanied by fringe, brass or bronze detailing, and wood and other organic materials, the best bohemian chandeliers add welcomed texture and an exotic, free-spirited feel to any space. Craving more boho decor ideas? We got you.
