Beautiful Umbrella Chandeliers by New York Designer Shelly Sabel

in Lighting

It never rains but it pours or in the case of the umbrella chandeliers, shines. These delightful lighting fixtures combine two completely separate objects and merge them into an aesthetically pleasing fusion of color and light. The umbrella, used to shelter a person from the rain metamorphosizes into a ceiling lamp, an object that mimics the sun for indoor use. With this in mind it is not too difficult to see where the inspiration for this fascinating combination comes from.

Each umbrella lamp is made from umbrella pieces, some of them found, along with aluminum and porcelain sockets and parts. So far this year they have been displayed in numerous galleries but they will soon be put into mass production and sold in stores.

As can be noted in the images, these contemporary chandeliers come in a variety of colors.

id like to hazard and a guess and tell you both that this is more for the sake of art, not design. its purpose is only itself, it’s work to be looked at and enjoyed in THAT way. not to look at it and go BRILLIANT SOLUTION.

very pretty.

You’re quite right Stella. It’s a decorative alternative if one is seeking more color and a unique lighting instillation that will make guest’s jaws drop.
