News Flash! Concrete Meets Iron in Lighting

Rustic Concrete and Iron Chandelier
This chandelier is traditional in design but rustic in materials creating this unique fixture. The all iron chandelier is encased in real concrete with beautiful curves and turns. The iron gives it structure and strength under the concrete and enhances the design where the iron is left showing. The center rod, the candle cups and chain are all a dark natural iron which stands out from the light gray of the concrete. The concrete makes this chandelier heavy and it is left in a natural state where flaws, distressed areas and some joints are part of the show. This is where rustic meets refined to create this unusual large chandelier. This chandelier has six lights at 60w maximum each and it comes with an eight foot chain. This is a larger size at 38" across x 42" high from top to bottom. Item #C09636 at The Designer Insider.
