This beautiful fixture uses a sturdy metal base that’s wrapped in thick rope with vintage styled light bulbs. The minute we saw it we loved it. The thick ropes remind us of boats and the sea. They also remind us of nautical decor and the fun you can have designing with rope.

This chandelier is installed in a private dining room in the restaurant called West Bridge located in Massachusetts. While browsing some of the other images of the restaurant we also noticed that they used some vintage inspired light fixtures to give the space a vintage look. These light fixtures also add to the space’s simple, minimalistic design. Normally we stick to our beloved homes, but when we see a beautiful and unique chandelier, or any piece for that matter, we have to share it with you guys.

You can use your open shelves to show off your vintage jars and bottles that contain your cooking ingredients and spices giving your kitchen more vintage details. Like we said before, those details are everything and will help bring an even better vintage look to the space.
