You’ve seen these types of art lighting in modern museums, lavish resorts, and luxury casinos, but you may not have know what they were called… or that you can have such dramatic design in your own home! Let’s start by discussing the two main options; what they have in common and what makes them each unique.
Both “Cascading Chandeliers” & “Glass Installations” consist of large numbers of hanging pieces of hand blown glass either in a set uniform pattern or in a more organic freeform layout. Both are extremely versatile, completely customizable, unique, dramatic, and innovative options for functional, illuminated ceiling art that will become the focal point and conversation piece of any room in your home!
The big difference between “Cascading Chandeliers” and “Glass Installations” are their structure:
“Cascading Chandeliers” start with a canopy (ceiling plate) that has the lighting source built in to shine down on the glass, or it can be the source for lighting inside each piece of hanging glass. This installation type is great for flat ceilings, or when you want to add more definition or segmentation to your ceiling’s lighting.
“Glass Installations” are externally illuminated by standard recessed lighting that is either existing or installed specifically to light up the hanging glass pieces. this installation type is perfect for domed, angled, or recessed ceilings where a canopy would either detract from the design, or lack a mounting surface for a canopy.
