rope chandeliers

I’ve been on a quest for a unique chandelier for my breakfast area for some time now.  It’s tough because the ceiling is vaulted, so I need something decently sized so it doesn’t look silly in all that open space.  I’ve toyed with the idea of re-wiring a huge lantern, but haven’t been able to find one I love and I really want something different and unexpected.  A random search on Pinterest stopped me dead in my tracks when I saw this chandelier wrapped in jute rope by Regina Andrew:

It’s a little on the nautical side, I know, and while I try to stay away from kitchy, beachy decor, I kept coming back to this chandelier.  I’ve posted before about decorating with jute rope – the possibilities are endless – and I love the warmth and texture it brings to a space.  It doesn’t look like this is a trend that is going anywhere anytime soon, either.  Check out some of the other rope stunners I found:

This one by Jamie Young Co. would look beautiful in a beach house:

A similar, more affordable option from Pottery Barn:

They both remind me of the one in this eating nook in a kitchen designed by Steven Gambrel:

This tiny one would be perfect in a powder room or a hallway:

Restoration Hardware’s got a few beauties, as well. I love this French Empire 6-arm chandelier:

…as well as this Planetarium Chandelier:

What do you think?  Would you hang one in your home?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    Thanks, Kate! I think the hubby is on the fence-might have to use my veto power! 🙂
