A stylish and versatile focal piece, the Dahlia Chandelier is available in your choice of finishes, making it the perfect pick for living room, dining or entryway lighting. Also available in a smaller version.
Our designers are frequently asked what inspired a given design. This was particularly true of the best-selling Dahlia designs. “Sometimes the inspiration comes from the most basic of forms. I was looking at an image of jewelry that was created by Harry Bertoia, a famous 1950’s furniture designer, best known for his diamond pattern metal chair designs. The organic form of a leaf was repeated throughout the piece, and it really appealed to me,” recounted Hubbardton Forge designer, Paul Marr-Hilliard. “I started playing with the idea of curved metal pieces coming from a central axis. A halo or ring of light would be at the core of the fixture, reflecting upon the “petals” on either side. It is a simple repetition of form that becomes quite beautiful and sculptural. By realizing early on that this design was very botanical in nature and representational of a large flower, the name of Dahlia was adopted. A perfect fit.”
The Dahlia designs provide a sculptural botanical aesthetic, like its namesake flower. Hand-forged steel “petals” flare outward from the center and are illuminated by exposed bulbs in a sputnik-type form in chandeliers and mini pendant designs, and with an opal or water glass globe shade in the semi-flush version.
