New Classics: Caviar Lighting

Glass world lights take on a whole new dimension in designer Laura Kirar’s eyesight, the Caviar light collection for Arteriors Home. While I love a simple glass globe light, the bare bulbs interior frequently give me a hassle. Not so with these; inside the globes, perforated metallic shades encase the bulbs and protect our delicate peepers from the warmth. These shades also add a solid structural component to the fixtures. The show involves a handful of different clusters and compositions, in the small single world to a bouquet-shaped chandelier composed of 18 bulbs. Here is how these fixtures are dangling overhead around .

The designer, Laura Kirar, studied sculpture and interior design at The Art Institute of Chicago, which explains why the pieces from the collection are so artistic and thoughtful.

This nine-globe chandelier has become the most sculptural of the options. While it’s large, the clear glass prevents it from overpowering a space; instead, it appears to float overhead.

The fixture may take on a retro-cool appeal that is part art deco and component ’60s contemporary, just like this room.

This configuration is that the Adjustable Bouquet variant, which splays 18 bulbs in a more uniform manner.

A set of pendants supplies this kitchen island with light, and the globes split all the crisp, rectangular lines in the room.

A trio of little pendants is a much better match for a bigger island. The black alloy of these shades gives them a solid presence.
