If you have never considered the idea of ceiling chains in interior design, there is a world of beauty out there that is yours to discover. Ceiling chains are an atypical decorative accent, but one with tremendous visual potential. It is not only the cold look of the metal and the way that it reflects light that give a space an instant facelift and a cool vibe. It is also the myriad configurations into which ceiling chains can be arranged and that, despite the raw material, create a surprising sense of fluidity and dynamism.
When used as ceiling decor, suspended mid-air or elegantly descending over a room, metal chains have the ability to fill the space and become its main focal point. A few such examples that use Kriskadecor aluminum chains are enough to show how they can be incorporated in commercial spaces to create stunning displays. For instance, using different chain lengths arranged in circular shapes, designers can build configurations that create the illusion of oversized chandeliers. Restaurants or lobbies with high ceilings are excellent candidates for this kind of metal chain art.
Multiplied across a larger space, similar circular and undulating structures create a flowing ceiling landscape that may echo the shapes of structures or furniture below. Concentric circles of metal chain add even more depth to it.
Contemplated from below, metal chains create a sense of movement, as in this spectacular display that brings to mind dancing firing flames, evermoving ocean waves, and the ruffles of a flowing dress at the same time.
Metal chains can dress up the entire area, from ceilings to walls, giving the impression that they grew organically with the building.
You can choose color if you prefer to avoid the raw metallic look but want to take advantage of the artistic potential of ceiling chains. This softens the look and makes the entire display more casual.
However, metal chains do not need to be relegated to strict decorative uses. In restaurants, where creating intimate spaces without cutting off the view is often the goal, they can be used as dividers that separate or define seating areas. They become transparent floating structures whose ethereal look gives the space an almost feminine vibe.
Even offices can benefit from the use of this material, especially when the space does not allow for lager solid structures. The ceiling chains let the light pass through, which makes them a great choice when natural light is scarce.
Placed against the wall, ceiling chain “curtains” turn into a unique wall treatment, especially when finished off with color.
Used simply as decorative options, cladding metal chain structures can entirely redefine an entrance, a facade or the entire height of a building interior. They create the illusion of a higher building, or can serve as billboards for commercial spaces. In addition, they offer an excellent background and an unconventional medium for colorful artistic displays.
