Even the most minimalistic interior has at least one decorative element. And often it is a chandelier, the appearance of which is able to transform the whole room and set a certain mood.
The "Spider" chandelier, stunning in its chic and uniqueness, can be complemented by the loft style, which has become very popular recently. This is a bohemian interior for creative people who love experiments and unique things.
What it is?
The chandelier got this name for a reason. It consists of a central mount, from which strong wires branch off, ending in light bulbs. Each of the "legs" can have a special fastening to the ceiling or a solid metal frame. In this case, flexible tripods ending in bulbs depart from the central mount. Although the traditional "spider" ceiling chandelier is closer in the first version. This insect-shaped design gave the product its name.
Features of the
The beauty of the product is that you can change it at your own discretion. The location of the side mounts depends only on your own taste.
You can hang cords with bulbs at different heights and varying distances from the center. In this case, adjustments can be made after the mounting process with one easy movement.
Bulbs often have a metal shade, but can be produced without it. Then they resemble dewdrops frozen on the hairy legs of an insect. This effect will visually make the structure lighter and less intimidating.
There is no better option for post-industrial interior or style design loft. These stylish, urbanized chandeliers will brighten up the space and add a touch of bohemianism and boldly challenge the norms of society.
I must say that in order to hang such a lamp in your home, you need to have a sufficient ceiling height. Initially, the loft style, which so well matches the design of the lamp, was born from the inspiration of abandoned workshops and factories. Large rooms were just waiting for a real "spider giant", because thanks to their long legs the luminaire is able to diffuse light throughout the room.
Speaking about the varieties of "spider" lamps, there are two types of them:
- The first one has central mount and soft outgoing legs-wires. Plafonds of such options are simple metal, in the form of carved gratings of various models, or without a lampshade at all. Bulbs, as a rule, are set in a spherical shape, as if imitating drops of moisture.
- The second type has solid legs extending from the central mount, also most often made of metal. They can bend and change position, as they are usually equipped with 2-3 hinges. You can adjust not only the leg, but also the angle of incidence of the light. These lamps are most often equipped with a metal shade. They look more bulky and are suitable for large rooms.
Most often, spider chandeliers are produced in black, imitating the color of one of the largest and most frightening insects on the planet, the tarantula. However, you can find more sophisticated white options or even colored ones, which are often used in the design of children's and teenage rooms.
It is worth noting that the ceiling cup and wires can be of different colors, and their choice is quite rich. You can also choose the color of the cartridge. However, most people opt for a monochrome lamp.
Thanks to the ability to hang the legs at your discretion, this lighting fixture is able to provide uniform illumination throughout the room. This is important if the chandelier is the central lighting element. If necessary, it can also be used as an addition to the main light source.
Lamp caps vary, just like other products of this kind.
Recommended power 40-60 W for incandescent lamp.
If you want to play with the shades of light, you can turn to LED lamps. They allow you to choose between different color temperature options. To create a truly urban interior, you can purchase lamps with a cool tint. They remind you of the latest technology and neon signs.
In addition, LED bulbs are capable of providing different colors of illumination. Spider lamps are created for those who like to shock and surprise. For example, for a party, you can purchase bulbs of the same spectacular color, for example, purple, or different colors. The guests will not forget this for a long time.
Many people use these bulbs because of their low power consumption and extraordinary durability: they can withstand more than 5 years of continuous burning. No other light source can boast of such a result. Moreover, they are absolutely safe for the environment.
Edison lamps look no less attractive in the shades of such lamps. They imitate retro incandescent lamps with their appearance, although they are not inferior in functionality to modern models. They most often also have an LED board.
