Decorative Ironwork Chandelier
LIGHTING, METALWORK, GARDEN
An outdoor iron chandelier provides the central feature for a gatehouse on a private estate. The light hangs from a boss and long chain to hover within a decorative Oak lantern. The chandelier is not immediately visible to the viewer but is discovered when looking up into the ceiling of the cartway. The chandelier was required to light up the glazed lantern at night so that it can be viewed from around the estate.
It was important that the light fitting designed for the space did not detract from, or interrupt, the view of the decorative glazed lantern from underneath, as the detailing in the joinery work itself is a work of art. Therefore, Lydia designed a slim, vertical and open structure with a simple level of embellishment to the top and bottom rings of the light fitting. The design of the beech leaf rings reflect the towering beech tree canopy that the lantern is enveloped by.
