If shabby chic or ocean-side cottage style is your choice of decor, seashell chandeliers can be the best choice for you. Seashell chandeliers can matching the vibe of the rest of the room. When choosing the best seashell chandeliers, it’s helpful to note the main types as well as which kind you prefer and what would best suit your home. Pressed and dangling are two common presentations of seashell chandeliers. There are also the very textured, clustered kinds of chandeliers with many types of seashells glued onto them in an artistic style. Typically, artist-crafted, clustered seashell chandeliers are tastefully done with similar types of shells placed carefully together in groups. Groups of smaller seashells may be glued all in the same direction on the branch-like arms, or pedestals, of the chandelier, with a lengthwise line being created on each pedestal. This effect can give a seashell chandelier an almost octopus-like appearance. Larger shells are often glued around the light’s upper base, while longer seashells may form the center bottom section of the chandelier.
When it’s completed in different shades of white, a clustered seashell chandelier can fit in with airy, romantic decors or elegant beach-inspired homes. If your home style is more contemporary than a romantic or beach look, a pressed shell pendant chandelier may work best. These seashell chandeliers are usually streamlined with a geometric light shade hanging from slim metal rods.
