Modern Trends in Murano Glass Chandelier Selection

Hardly a day goes by without us finding out about how people all over the world discover their love for Murano glass. While most of us like traditional Murano chandeliers, it’s notable what some interior designers are doing when incorporating modern trends in Murano glass chandelier selection.

4 Trends in Murano Glass Chandelier Selection for Modern Atmospheres

Their beauty, majestic, and everlasting charm attracts everyone, from classically trained interior designers, to wholesale interior decorators. From real state moguls to tv personalities. And from rappers and boat owners to restaurant owners and more. Everyone has found their love for Murano once they see one.

Providing both a glamorous look with a bit of eccentricity. Murano glass chandeliers worldwide make a statement that’s hardly matched by any other lightning picture.

1. Joan and Erika favor Murano

The most recent example comes reality TV star, from Erika Jayne, from the real housewives of Beverly Hills as she shares her worth, along with her fondness for Murano art in her interview with the LA Times.

It’s to note that she also likes Wayfair, Anthropologie and Lamps Plus chandeliers. But what really attracted us was that she chose world class interior designer Joan Behnke & Associates to help her decorate her 17,000 square foot Beverly Hills home.

Although we recently talked about Jan Showers chandeliers, we are quite fond of Joan Behnke non-traditional style when choosing lightning, as seen from her collections on her website. We hope we get to see what she picked for Erika.

We wouldn’t be surprised she chose a modern-looking and extravagant $25,000 hand-blown Murano glass chandelier from Murano. Who needs vacation when paradise is right here at home?

Anyways, the second example we got to know recently, comes from an all-day wine bar in Houston, Texas. Located in the heights -area, Postino Wine Cafe recently acquired a vintage Murano glass chandelier as part of their retro decoration.

2. Crystal Chandelier in Postino Cafe

Located in a historic building that once was an old post office as well as a warehouse of Pappas Restaurants. The fancy cafe is open from dawn till dusk, for all Houstonians to meet, celebrate and enjoy their well crafted beverages as well as their relaxed and urban atmosphere. We celebrate their taste in choosing a non-traditional, yet, retro chandelier from Murano.

3. Aye Aye, Murano Chandelier in a Ship

Keeping up with the non-traditional chandelier style, we got to know S.S. Beatrice added a Murano chandelier as part of their decoration. Topping its grand staircase, Uniworld’s Super Ships signature design element.

This one is definitely one of those trends in Murano glass chandelier selection that we are seeing more often, as even yacht owners are incorporating them as well.

For the lucky few who get to make their Budapest to Giurgiu trip, we can only add you will not only be awarded by their gorgeous white Murano chandelier with blue shades, but you’ll get awarded by some pieces from Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder and Pino Signoretto.

4. Luxury Chandeliers for Realty

Last but not least, we wanted to point out how some modern realty developers are incorporating Murano chandeliers in ways hardly seen before.

The Needham Homefront tudor, located in 810 South St, Needham, in the county of Norfolk, in Massachusetts, has included a variety of chandeliers in their decoration.

Beginning with their dinning room, featuring a white crystal chandelier, with 8-lights and five tiers. Gorgeously adding accent and charm to the property and in beautiful contrast with the carefully selected furniture and carpeting.

A second chandelier has been chosen for their casual dining room, along a circular eat-in area. The two tier chandelier perfectly balances the circular room and spectacular views.

If this wasn’t enough, the realty has added a third chandelier, and this is the one we’re more fond of. As part of our selection of non-traditional crystal chandelier selections, the Needham folks have selected a stunning Murano chandelier inside their bath tub, an elevated stand-alone centrally located steam shower.

What we like here is not so much the chandelier itself, but how they decided to incorporate it inside the tub. Even though it’s been already elevated. It’s probably a custom chandelier as it’s intended for under water usage. But that’s hardly a problem for expert glass masters in custom Murano chandeliers.

Having a chandelier on top of your elevated bathtub can only put the royalty in their place.

That is all for now. But we’ll keep covering current and modern trends in Murano glass chandelier selection.

We keep a close eye on what designers and buyers are incorporating. And we will of course comment and bring you the best and most creative ideas in the Murano world.

Hope to see you next time.

Buonanotte!
