I feel like this question belongs here rather than, say, electrical. My question concerns design sense and 1920s aesthetics.
We have a 1920s craftsman bungalow with some faint art deco hints around the fireplace and built-ins, but generally it's your standard wood-trimmed bungalow.
When selecting overhead light fixtures, we don't *love* the rustic bungalow stuff with the prairie themes and cottagey styles (we're a little more urban at heart). We have found some fixtures that seem to be a mix of art deco and craftsman. But we've also been thinking about looking at the "streamline" / Industrial mood of the art deco styles.
Some of these chandeliers, to me, look like a good compromise--they are still rustic, but cooloer looking to me. And they have similar window pane designs from the Mission/Craftsman style.
I would get it in a bronze or brown, not the ultra-modern silver/nickel. The only concern is whether this would make the bungalow look too much like a loft. we love the light and we love to keep our home historically appropriate, we just want to kind of 'push the envelope' without looking absurd.
what do you think? is it possible to have an industrial-style chandelier that is also appropriate for a bungalow?
