Cathedral Chandeliers


The great Romanesque basilicas and Gothic cathedrals of the west did not originally contain extensive chandeliers. In modern times, such churches have struggled with appropriate lighting solutions. Almost all chandelier designs are too small or too ‘precious’ to look right in a huge Gothic or Romanesque nave. We have designed a style of fixture specifically for such settings. It is inspired by the great Byzantine choros, but with a vertical rather than horizontal shape to complement the proportions of a western church. Please contact us about an on-site consultation if you are interested in a set of these cathedral chandeliers.
