A regular shop stop whilst living in Bangkok was the fabulous Casa Pagoda – a quirky, eclectic emporium of home wares with more than a nod to the industrial revolution. And on one of my trips around town to catalogue Bangkok’s design districts, I snapped this rather striking dining vignette. The idea of a boldly colourful chandelier as an accent against a neutral backdrop (in a vivid royal blue here but any jewel tone would work) is fresh, unexpected and totally transferable as a concept. Think canary yellow or fuchsia against greys or an emerald green against monochrome. And here, it’s the twinkly, iridescent glass drops that add the fizz (read textural contrast) to the scheme. Sourcing-wise, unless you’re dropping by BKK any time soon or literally pushing the boat out and heading to Venice for a scrolly, Murano version – the best way seek out a coloured glass chandelier is via the internet from antique or vintage lighting specialists. Alternative colour pop chandeliers include The French Bedroom Company’s ‘Pop Yellow’ option, flocked ‘Jasmine’ chandeliers in red or blue from Thomas & Vines and the stunning blue or green beaded chandeliers by Out There Interiors both through Not On The High Street.
