A huge chandelier hanging from a center light in a room hints luxury. The bigger the room. The more the scope of a fancy center of attraction in the form of a hanging center light.
Most of my grown up years were in Jodhpur. That is a small Indian city popular for its royal heritage. The city’s palace, Umaid Bhawan is a popular tourist attraction.
I recall the presence of huge and beautiful chandeliers adorning that royal abode.
Fast forward time to 20 years hence. I am stuck with my house which is not a palace. But is big enough to sport a ceiling lamp, if not a chandelier.
The concept of light reflecting through a kaleidoscopic element excites me. My late father was also a big fan of lighting fixtures and unique lamps. I guess it is from him that I got my fascination for outlandish lighting decors and fixtures.
That is why I got serious about curating some ceiling lamps that caught my attention. The list goes as below:

There is some attraction to a ceiling lamp. I do not know. It is mesmerizing to see light casting shadows when it passes through some media.
That is one of the reasons why the interior decorators play a huge stress on lighting fixtures.
Lighting has the potential to alter the decor of an interior. No wonder that a museum/ gallery stresses on its lighting.
Such commercial enterprises can afford to change their construction to their lighting needs. But for the retail consumer use, such a luxury is out of a budget. Instead, they can bring in appropriate lighting that complements the existing decor.
The options of artisan crafted lighting in this article serve that purpose well. Each of the 7 handmade ceiling lamps is beautiful and perfect for home purposes.
Though a living room center is appropriate for these lamps. But they would go well for a study or a bar too.
These handmade ceiling lamps provide lighting drama for any corner of a house.
