For many, a clean and sophisticated look is all they want in their home. Modern interior design deserves the beauty of a chandelier above the dining room table or in the front hall, and there are thousands of contemporary chandelier styles available.

Silver is a popular finish for the modern chandelier, and clear glass and crystal serve the clean and minimal design very nicely.

The Sutton Collection presents a chandelier draped in blue Murano crystal drops. The frame is made of wrought iron. It has a traditional construction, but the bright colors are definitely funky enough to work with a modern decor. It would look magnificent near a bright blue pool.

The English bronze chandelier’s star shape grabs everybody’s attention. The bronze looks old fashioned, but the design is very modern. My brother used to love welding sculptures in that style and he always called it his modern art.

Some of my friends have done interesting projects in the past. One of them took a papasan chair frame, decorated it with Christmas lights and turned it upside down. There is a very thin line between modern art and contemporary lighting, and I think we should smudge that line as much as possible.
