Here at The Peak Antler Company, we have built hundreds of antler chandeliers and antler furniture decor over the last 18 years.  While working with clients and interior designers we noticed antler chandeliers are not limited to being used in rustic design.  Some may think antler chandeliers are only for hunters, to be used only in cabins, trophy rooms, hunting lodges or rustic settings.  We do not agree, we are seeing more and more designers incorporate antler chandeliers as an accent piece to compliments the variety of eclectic, modern, contemporary, traditional and even beach style interior design styles.  Historically, antler furniture has been in homes and castles since as early as the 19th century, we would love to help you incorporate your own unique custom build antler chandeliers in transitional design or any interior design style.
While gathering information on how antlers in transitional design fair, we found a definition to be the starting point.  Wikipedia defines transitional interior design style best:
Transitional Style (also known as “updated classic”, “classic with a contemporary twist”, “new takes on old classics”) in interior design and furniture design refers to a blend of traditional and contemporary styles, midway between old world traditional and the world of chrome and glass contemporary; incorporating lines that are less ornate than traditional designs, but not as severely basic as contemporary lines. As a result transitional furniture designs are classic, timeless, and clean.
Curves combine with straight lines in a transitional style interior to deliver a look that balances both masculine and feminine attributes for a comfortable and relaxing, uncomplicated design. A lack of ornamentation and decoration with minimal accessories keeps the focus on the simplicity and sophistication of the design.  Color palettes are typically neutral and subtle and may be monochromatic, with color in art and accents, not upholstery and floors.
Unlike contemporary furniture, transitional style focuses on comfort and practicality to meet the lifestyle of an active household. The scales of furniture pieces are ample but not overwhelming. Goose feather and down fill is typically used for upholstered furniture, wood species (maple, mahogany, walnut, etc.) and wood finishing is typically warm tones but can range from a natural finish to a high-gloss lacquer. Texture is important, and a multitude of fabric selections can vary from durable materials to sophisticated, plush fabrics, with tone-on-tone or small scale graphics. A balanced mix of several textures is often used.
Our custom made antler chandeliers clearly fit into the transitional design style.  We build each antler chandelier to order and the customizing options are endless.  Antler Chandeliers in Transitional design are the perfect accent to any space,  here are some examples in many different settings:

Product Spotlight: Moose Antler Chandeliers

The Peak Antler Company - Custom Moose and Elk Antler Chandelier with down lights for over a Dining Room

When you see moose antler chandeliers, do you feel like these artistic lighting pieces are reaching out to you? That’s because, in a way, they are. Male moose antlers are palmate in shape; this means they are shaped like an open hand with outstretched fingers. Other antlers are dendritic; they have a twig-like configuration. The bull moose, the largest of all the deer species, can have antlers that span as 6' or larger. The Peak Antler Company moose chandeliers are created from naturally shed antlers.

When you contact us, we’ll ask about the general size of your home and the location you’d like to hang your chandelier. The room size and ceiling height are important, as are your illumination needs. If a moose antler chandelier is too small for the room, it loses its dramatic appeal. If it’s too big, it overpowers the room. Many time we can add a downlight option or your chandelier can be on a dimmer switch. We will recommend the moose antler chandelier style and size that is most suitable for your space. With safety as well as beauty as our goal, each style will be customized to your specifications (size specifications will vary with each order.):

Antler chandeliers in modern design my be the least common, but they make the most dramatic statement. The most modern antler chandelier we built to date used white, naturally shed elk antler in an oval design. It used brushed nickel electrical fittings to compliment the sleek modern accents of the room.
In searching for examples to support our idea of antler chandeliers in modern design we discovered a quote by Beth Asaff, Kitchen and Bathroom Designer at iteriordesign.lovetoknow.com
“Chrome and stainless steel make up a big part of modern design. Doing away with traditional metal details (like wrought iron) opens up the door for clean, polished metals to be used in their place. It’s not uncommon to see chrome or stainless steel as part of the furniture, such as table legs or exposed portions of a chair’s frame. Chrome is used extensively throughout the home seen in faucets, doorknobs, cabinet handles, lamps and railings.”
We also found “modern design is a style of decor that focuses on minimalism, neutral colors, clean design lines and environmentally-friendly materials.” ALL our antler chandeliers in modern design use naturally shed antlers, no harm ever comes to the animals! See more here
