When you think outdoor furniture you hardly ever think of a chandelier. However that is exactly what many people are putting in their settings. It’s quite bizarre to see in some cases but in others it gives you a style that cannot be matched. As they become more affordable over time we are seeing them in some very interesting places. While it provides little in the way of lighting during the day it can make for a nice party setting after hours. So here is a toast to unexpected designs.
This piece of design is not something new in the sense of it has never been done. Hanging fixtures have been popular since very ancient times. It’s just that we have not seen much of them in everyday life. They were the reservation of Kings and Queens. Because of this only modern design has seen this swing up in popularity. If you can afford to have one of these installed it can be an amazing piece.
When buying one of these pieces of outdoor furniture you will likely need an overhang or shelter of some sort. This is because even in settings where the client can handle this you can expect random bad weather to cause problems as well. It’s not so simple as just throwing it into an area. This may mean you need to make some additional purchases or hire someone so it is not a small investment. Keep that in mind before you get started with anything like this.
That being said if you have a fully enclosed area you could just buy a traditional chandelier. They do make ones which are more resilient than the standard but you may not need them. Maintenance will of course be needed since proper dusting is vital as in any other situation. If you can handle the dedication needed to maintain it then it’s a good choice.
It can also bring an interesting parallel to your other pieces. Outdoor Furniture styles that clash can sometimes create a new style which makes any setting unique. It’s quite possible to create something like this if you decide to go with a chandelier in the setting.
One major question to ask when picking this style is whether your friends will find it too haughty. An item like this tells people something specific. Basically that you are not afraid of looking too rich or high-class when you are decorating. Because of this you need to make sure they like the style of the setting. Otherwise you may give them the wrong idea about how you want to treat them.
Having a piece like this can be risky. Even durable ones are somewhat prone to breaking if they take a big impact or even fall from the ceiling. This can be a huge problem if it shatters because it’s very difficult to repair it on a level that it will still look good. What is the point of having one of these if it doesn’t look good? There is none so be careful or ready to pay for another.
