Bring The Outdoors In
Antler Chandeliers are a great choice for your cabin or lodge, or just about anywhere you want to bring a touch of the outdoors into your home. Many of the fixtures in the antler collections have crushed stone glass diffusers and shades that throw off a soft light. Most of the antlers are made of a resin, which reduces weight, and are usually dyed a light, natural color or a deep brown. They are the perfect choice if you are looking to incorporate a rustic, country theme to your home décor.
Lighting fixtures with antlers come in different reproductions of Mule Deer, White Tail Elk, and others and are available as floor lamps, chandeliers, flush mount ceiling fixtures, and desk or table lamps. We even have an antler ceiling fan lighting kit. What a perfect addition to your man-cave! There are also exterior antler lighting fixtures in the form of wall sconces and entryway pendant lights. Many will seem quite busy with multiple antlers, but some are very simple with the antlers gently cradling the shade or diffuser.
For a hallway or foyer remember that the bottom of the fixture should be at least 7 feet off the floor surface. If you are choosing a fixture for over a dining room table, it should be no lower than 30 inches off the table surface. You can augment your antler design by adding wall sconces in a matching set to enhance the overall effect. There are some beautiful table lamps that would be great next to your favorite chair for reading. These will help eliminate dark corners and shadows from the room with up lighting that will reflect of the ceiling.
One thing you want to take into consideration is the weight of the chandelier. Antler designs can be heavy even though many are made of resin. If you are installing a new fixture you want to make sure that the J-box can hold the weight of your new fixture. If you are replacing an existing ceiling fixture that is of similar weight you should be fine.
Many of these Antler Chandelier and fixtures will have candle lights, but many will have regular bulbs inside shades. They can be installed with chains for an authentic look. These are good choices for over dining tables and large areas you want to illuminate with ambient lighting. An Antler Chandelier installed with a dimmer switch will give the perfect intimate lighting for a dining area. For general room light, a handsome Antler Chandelier would enhance the natural glow in a room with a fireplace and add warmth.
You have probably seen these rustic lighting fixtures in commercial applications such as hotels and restaurants. They convey a warm, country look that is inviting to guests and makes them feel welcome. Now you can have these same beautiful fixtures in your home.
