It’s easy to fall in love with a location when on vacation; but it can be difficult to bring the feeling of that location back to your home. Fortunately, Murray Feiss has produced a selection of light fixtures that are inspired by Southern France’s grand chateaus. All of the fixtures within this collection feature a bronze finish and glass crystals.
Southern France Inspired Chandeliers
I myself, have never been to the South of France and therefore have never been inside any of the chateaus in the region. I have, however, seen many pictures via my high school French class; and I would imagine that these light fixtures, which are elegant and almost renaissance-styled in nature, are exactly what would be found in the South of France.
In fact, when I think of a fancy chandelier, this 6 light crystal chandelier from the Chateau collection is exactly what I imagine. The hanging crystals compliment the bronze-colored curls of the chandelier. Each light is candle-shaped with candelabra bulbs, adding to the renaissance feel of the chandelier. $499.99 with free shipping from Lighting Direct.
(If you’re a fan of Beauty and the Beast; then this chandelier might strike your fancy.) It features 16 candelabra lights, a curled bronze frame and polished crystal. At $2,199.99, it’s a bit high up on the price tag; but it will certainly be a crowd pleaser and the center of attention in whatever room you put it in.
For some, the above-mentioned chandeliers might be a bit “overkill.” Fortunately, the Chateau collection also features a smaller 4 light mini chandelier for a fraction of the cost. Like the 6 light chandelier, this smaller mini chandelier features hanging crystals with a bronze finish and candle lights. $269.99 with free shipping from Lighting Direct.
Lastly, if you’re looking for something a little more unique but along the same lines in terms of style; then this unique 6 light chandelier is different from the 6 light mentioned above might be for you. It features a wider spacing throughout the fixture, but with the same hanging polished crystal, candle lights and bronze finish. $629.99 with free shipping from Lighting Direct.
Chateau Lighting Collection
Though I mainly focused on the ornate chandeliers, there are also a few wall sconces and semi-flush ceiling fixtures and flush ceiling fixtures available in the Murray Feiss Chateau collection. They also offer a a matching ceiling medallion for the chandeliers, to complete the look.
