Well Dressed Home No. 20 - Shadow Effect

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.

  1. Incredible photos...I always look above too, but have really taken for granted how cool this really is. Love the street lights through the windows at night too!
