Take A Sip From These Wine Bottles
If you are a wine connoisseur or just want a conversation piece for over your bar area or dining room, why not try a Wine Bottle Chandelier? There are many interesting lighting fixtures in this contemporary style with bulbs suspended inside frosted glass wine bottles. There are even lamp shades made from recycled glass wine bottles that are as beautiful as they are practical. Think of all the colors that wine bottles come in and you get an idea of the variation that is available.
The recycled glass Wine Bottle Chandeliers are really spectacular! They have the thick, bottom sections of wine bottles that have been cut as disks and then are encased in metal and welded together. These fixtures have a surprisingly retro look with the feel of a piece of modern art. The glow from within is perfect for pendant lighting over dining and bar areas, but would also work well as an outside light over an entryway. They come in all the bottle colors you would expect; amber, green, burgundy, cobalt as well as clear and frosted glass. Most Wine Bottle Chandeliers are hung with simple cord to enhance that retro look and clean line of the piece.
There are unlimited possibilities with wine bottles. They have the perfect shape for use as glass shades or diffusers and are large enough inside for light bulbs to be suspended within. Some have been cut in half lengthwise and mounted on wood or metal plates for use as wall sconces. These would be great choices for commercial applications in restaurants and bars. Imagine how pretty and practical these wall sconces would be mounted in each booth of a café. The light is directed downward for patrons to be able to read and sign their bills, but soft enough at eye level for beautiful dining illumination.
Pendant lighting made from wine bottles are made even more beautiful with wrought iron vines and leaves that attach to the ceiling. The glass on these Wine Bottle Chandeliers has been etched for a lovely frosted glow. There are even chandeliers with the wine bottle in the center of several wrought iron S-curved arms affixed with candelabra bulbs.
Some of these Wine Bottle Chandeliers can be as simple as having candelabra sleeves and bulbs set in the bottle neck like a romantic bottle of Chianti at your favorite Italian restaurant. Others are more eclectic with small, energy efficient LED reflector lamps fitted in the cut out bottoms of a classic wine bottle. The possibilities are endless with these unusual yet practical lighting fixtures.
Imagine how pretty a Wine Bottle Chandelier would be with several frosted bottles in deep burgundy glass, cascading downward in a circle overhead in a den or kitchen. There are so many possibilities with these beautiful chandeliers, and you can feel good about recycling! These lovely Wine Bottle Chandeliers are generally going to be used for mood lighting, and not for task or ambient lighting, as they give of a soft, muted glow.
