Light your home the Art Nouveau way.. Chandeliers by French architect and designer Hector Guimard who lived from 1867 to 1942. He designed the first Art Nouveau apartment building in Paris. Love the curtain effect with these.

Boudoir chandelier with a body made of gilt bronze crafted into a curved, semi-ovular frame with glass and bronze tubes hanging from the edges, creating an ephemeral curtain around the lighting inside. An opaque blue glass plaque hangs from the frame as well, marking a delineation between two sides of this oblong chandelier. From Guimard’s “Lustre Lumière” collection. ca. 1914. French.
