The project required 10 flush mount fixtures and 5 pendant lights with similar design. The fixtures were drafted by Grand Light and sent for the client's approval. Samples for glass and finish were sent as well, and the client approved the combination of acrylic bowl bleached honey onyx, and a mahogany bronze finish. All the fixtures accommodate CFL lamps, and were wired in accordance to UL standards.
Grand Light was recently contacted by a client who wanted to replicate a chandelier that he had seen in Europe. Using a picture he had provided as inspiration, Grand Light's artisans sketched out their interpretation of what the new chandelier will look like.
Please have a look below to see the photo of the original chandelier, along with our shop drawings which will serve as a blueprint for production of the replication.
The prototypes of the custom candle lantern and matching base have been given a hand applied oil-rubbed bronze finish. The prototypes were constructed using 24 gauge copper, and are currently being shipped to the client. Production will resume following Thanksgiving on the remaining five lanterns and four tables.
The fabrication of a custom designed candle lantern and matching pedestal has been completed. The raw prototypes were constructed using 24 gauge copper, and are scheduled to be given a bronze finish this coming Monday.
Grand Light's restoration team recently completed the restoration of ten gothic-style chandeliers for the auditorium of the Washington Irving Intermediate School, located in Tarrytown, New York.
The custom lanterns are modifications of an existing lantern the client came across, which can be seen in the picture below.

The four lanterns, made of hand-crafted iron with a classic
black finish, are the latest fixtures made for the university by the New Haven-based
lighting specialists. They were designed to match the state of the existing
corner bracket lanterns restored by Grand Light during the summer.
