Beautifully Baroque

Last weekend while at Lowe's checking out their ceiling medallions, I spotted this lovely chandelier hanging in the lighting aisle.

It reminded me of Urban Outfitters' faux chandelier.

(Wouldn't a cluster of either of these hanging lights look really great?)

Anyway, it also made me realize how much I love the baroque silhouette...and how designers are interpreting this style in new and fresh ways with modern materials. 

For example, this frame from Ikea is simply striking.

And the Bourgie lamp designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell is quite enchanting.

I love everything in glossy black too. But West Elm's dinnerware in white is equally eye-catching.

But what if you are in the mood for some color? This cardboard chandelier silhouette in bright pink from Etsy seller Seequin may do just the trick.

Whether in color, or black and white, these contemporary takes on an antique concept would add a lot of drama and impact to any room.
