Warm Up Your World with Old World Wrought Iron Lighting

Old World lighting from Mediterranean, Spanish Colonial, and Tuscan style interiors adds warmth, charm and timelessness to a space.  Typically made from wrought iron, these light fixtures are characterized by quality materials and fine craftsmanship.  Scroll patterns and curves are common features in the designs.  Let's take a look at some great old European-inspired lighting.  

A classic shape (above) is the hoop are ring chandelier.  This style has been around since Medieval times, and its simple design has inspired many modern light fixtures.

Here is a "traditional" chandelier (above), which could be cut out from iron or cardboard but stills adds the warmth that wrought iron brings.
