CHEAP TO CHIC: BAMBOO CHANDELIERS!

Red Pagoda Chandelier from Pieces
Pieces - Red Pagoda Chandelier - $1750 (Newly painted red-orange semi gloss. Custom made antiqued candle sleeves made from pipe. Pagoda design style.)(above)

Loving bamboo chandeliers...found one on eBay for a friend a few weeks back and she won it...she painted it white. In particular loving the Pagoda chinoiserie style of these faux bamboo hanging lights. Very 1050's, 1960's...glamorous Hollywood (Hollywood Regency) or Palm Beach chic.

They come in metal, painted metal (tole), wood, resin and many other faux bamboo forms and they come in a wide variety of colors!

Am more partial to these chandeliers, pendants, lanterns and lights in bright white...but maybe you could buy one of these and then paint it.

  1. Yes, yes! Lighting Week!!

    These bamboo chandeliers are wonderful. The one with the mini pineapple motif made me run to google and see if pineapple chandeliers exist. A quick image search produced scores of them, including a Tiffany-inspired stained glass, several crystal, a huge one in a South Beach hotel, and a website with a whole section of tropical-themed lighting.

    My dear, you have illuminated a whole new area of possible obsession for me!

  3. I don't typically think of bamboo & chandelier going together, but these are really great-looking. I especially love the white one from Pieces Inc. :)

  4. frosted bulbs are key here too! for a more modern look try using the frosted round bulbs on more geometric chandeliers...

    it's the cheapest of the bunch and i like it better than many of the pricier pieces. it comes in lots of colors, too. i'm loving the yellow with the black shades.
