Sometimes an important effect is overlooked when selecting a light fixture, whether a chandelier or even a floor lamp. And this overlooked effect can be a pleasant surprise the first time the light is turned on.
I have two such light fixtures, one is a torchiere from Fine Art Lamps and the other is the burning bush lamp from George Kovacs. Both are not available any longer and I don't have photos.
The torchiere is a iron caged design that throws an artful shadow onto the ceiling that is so cool. And what makes the burning bush lamp effective is the flickering orange bulb that creates a burning flame effect.
I love the delicate branches and crystals that create a beautiful silhouette on the ceiling.
What a stunning Star of David effect.
An amazing shadow effect from a tiny source.
Love this stairway lighting effect.
The hues in this shadow are beautifully eerie.
