Still, where do you even start with the farmhouse design? Well, we’re here to help out! Trust us when we say that the farmhouse chandelier is a great start for you to pursue this design decor, while giving yourself a great dash of style to light up your space. Lighting fixtures in the farmhouse style usually have a kind of antique look, and are combinations of wood, metal and glass to give you a truly rustic look and feel that makes your space pop.
Today, we’re looking at some of the best farmhouse chandelier ideas for you to spark up your imagination and spruce up your space.
Rustic, with a hint of modern
It may not seem like they would work together well, but blending rustic farmhouse elements with a modern design aesthetic gives off a comfortable and lived-in design that is chic and modern. For example, the use of industrial tiles matches well with a contemporary carpet, which is further accentuated by a farmhouse chandelier like the Alva Wide 12-Light Island Bronze Chandelier. This gives off a sense of surprise in terms of the design, and makes your space pop.
This is because both farmhouse and industrial styles incorporate the use of reclaimed woods, distressed by weather or time, and timeworn metals. The farmhouse design relies on a simplicity of composition so that a few well-chosen pieces do the design storytelling within the space.
Bringing the romance
A rustic wedding decor isn’t complete without a farmhouse chandelier to light up the spark. Bring a burst of romance to your big day with the farmhouse chandelier. Whether it’s the rustic charm of the Avla 16-Light Bronze Island Chandelier or the iron box details of the Franklin 6-light island bronze chandelier, you’ll definitely be adding in an unexpected touch to your wedding. Trust us when we say that a farmhouse chandelier is great for giving you a whole new meaning to the term "setting the mood." Plus, the rustic look of a farmhouse chandelier will be a great contrast in a room with industrial touches and elements.
Best spots for a farmhouse chandelier
The kitchen is a great place to pair farmhouse details, from a rustic sink, to a wooden block table and lit up by a rustic antique farmhouse chandelier for a flawless and cohesive look. The Franklin 4-light cage island bronze pendant light works well here. Plus, you can also add in more warmth with warm lighting, reflecting well with the wooden cabinets and hardwood floors that goes so well with a farmhouse kitchen.
A rustic farmhouse chandelier is perfect in any living room. Whether you’re going for an industrial atmosphere, with rough elements like metals showing on the walls and floor, or a more homey feel, with exposed bricks or patina finishes in your home. With the Franklin 6-light island bronze chandelier, you can always soften the modern flair to keep things nice and balanced.

While this isn’t always the most popular option, you can always have a farmhouse chandelier up in your bedroom. The bed will remain as a focal point, so an iron framed chandelier can give off a distinctly modern look. Reclaimed bleached wood beams give the room a farmhouse look. Add in some simple window coverings and carpets for more warmth, personality, and texture.

The epitome of rustic farmhouse chandeliers is in the dining room, where a well chosen chandelier can not only set the aesthetic of the room, but also demonstrate how well your lighting is when it comes to being the focal point of your space.
