wish list

The background

When building a luxury home in Merseyside in an exclusive postcode, this high profile figure looked to Elixir Design Interiors to help create a stunning internal theme.

The challenge

This was a huge project and very much a blank canvas for designer Nicola Carragher, owner of Elixir Design Interiors.

Lightning was to play a huge part in creating a deluxe, opulent character to the home, particularly in the beautiful entrance area featuring a grand, sweeping staircase. The owners of this superb home were clear in their requirements for the lighting; they required a showstopping, dramatic focal point that was unique to their home.

Nicole had worked with Chantelle Lighting on previous projects and knew that they would be the ideal partners to work with to achieve this level of luxury.

She said: "Chantelle are renowned for their manufacture of luxury, bespoke lighting and i knew that they would be able to interpret my brief using their expert artisan skills"

The solution

Nicola worked closely alongside Chantelle Lighting to bring a spectacular, bespoke feature crystal chandelier with a unique spiraled crystal crystal stem to life in the grand entrance hall. At an impressive length of 6.5m the lavish, lighting-catching chandelier provided the exact wow factor the client was looking for.

During manufacture, Nicole was invited to Chantelle Lighting's factory in Lancashire to approve crystal, view samples of bespoke finishes and meet with artisans and craftsmen that were bringing the brief to a fantastic reality.

Nicola said: "The chandelier was designer and planned at the building stage of this magnificent property to allow for weight calculations for support n the roof space and also for access and planning for the installation.

"As the ceiling detail was slightly domed and silver leafed, the light from the chandelier bounced off the walls of the grand entrance area to create an incredible effect. Chantelle Lighting understood the importance of the smaller details that would all add to the majestic feel of the bespoke chandelier and in turn, the rest of the house."

This showpiece was complemented with bespoke feature crystal hanging wall lights with polished chrome frames and two tier feature oval pendant with chain and hanging crystal.

From a sketch provided by Nicola, Chantelle Lighting created a three tier oval pendant with chain and hanging crystal, which illuminates the dining area befittingly, while a 1.5m sq feature chrome pendant with hanging crystal and black shades offers a luxurious centrepiece for the lounge, complemented by feature twin polished chrome wall light with crystal and oval shade.

The result

 Nicola said: "The bespoke 6.5m crystal chandelier proved a supreme showstopper for the entrance hall and sets the tone for the rest of the luxury design. The team at Chantelle were also key in the installation of this amazing lighting creation and were helpful throughout each stage of this process.

"Overall, the chandelier and the wall and pendant lights are the perfect complement to furnishings within the dining room and lounge areas. Chantelle were a pleasure to work with and yet again brought a sketch to flawless reality."
