Shaped like spheres or orbs, globe chandeliers fully encase their bulbs to provide a warmly filtered glow. Try a large white glass globe in the kitchen nook or an acrylic orb in an open space such as a hallway or foyer. Install a dimmer switch and adjust the light to sink and swell over the course of the day and night. Explore the many shade types and styles to find the right fit for your design scheme. The circular shape tends to work well in highly modern interiors, especially mid-century, but globes with antiqued shades and burnished frames work well for traditional or colonial themes.
