Mule deer antler chandeliers are more open designs. Mule deer antlers differ from white-tailed deer in the way the antlers branch. White-tailed deer antlers branch from the base to form single points. Mule deer antlers branch from the base and each tine can make an additional branching, resulting in taller, more elegant antlers.
Mule deer antlers are a unique accent for homes in both white-tailed deer territory and mule deer territory. In whitetail country, a mule deer antler chandelier adds a touch of the exotic to your decor. In mule deer territory, a chandelier highlights the beauty of the deer.
Peak Antler Company offers customers more than just beautiful mule deer antler chandeliers. They offer a customized product to meet your specific needs and dreams. Choose between towering, multi-tiered antler chandeliers or the simple yet pleasing "bristle cone" style chandelier. For a wintry touch, add a snowshoe or incorporate an elk or moose antler into the product.
For a smaller chandelier, check out the mule deer antler chandelier pendant, perfect for gently illuminating the kitchen table or a cozy cabin.
For do-it-yourself types with access to sheds, our Make Your Own Antler Chandeliers DVD and kit are a way to truly customize your mule deer chandelier. Using the same approach and tools as we do in the shop, you can experience the satisfaction of constructing your own antler art. Whether it is for yourself or a gift, making your own antler chandelier is a project that is not only fulfilling but teaches you the skills you need to make many more antler projects down the road.

The Rut: that magical time of year when deer lovers, and lovers of deer, get emotional. Bucks proudly show off their tantalizing antlers for their does and put them to use fiercely challenging other bucks. Deer are on the move during the rut, and for those who get a glimpse of a flickering white tail bounding over a fence, or a flash of antlers along the edge of a roadside field, it's a rush of excitement and admiration for one of Nature's finest creations.
The rut, deer mating season, may actually only last a few brief weeks each year at the end of Fall. But beautiful antler decor in your home can retain that sense of natural awe year round. Deer and elk antlers are natural structural wonders of both strength and elegant delicacy. Antlers woven into antler chandeliers or similar interior design features have an irresistible charm that expresses your love for nature and invites your house guests to share their own tales of deer experiences.
Though all antler chandeliers may provide a personal touch to your interior design, you can create your own custom-made chandelier for even greater personal expression. The DIY - Instructional DVD and Supply Kits from The Peak Antler Company shows you how! Recall those few magical weeks of Fall any time of year when you light the room by the beautiful chandelier you've created with the antlers you've gathered. It's both a functional and decorative way to display your antler collection.
Nature's deer rut is a powerful force that stirs up instinctive emotions in deer and warm-hearted emotions in outdoor enthusiasts. Put this natural appeal of antlers to use in your next interior design project with antler decor.

Not only is antler furniture unique in design and creativity, but each piece is also one-of-a-kind since no two sets of antlers are the same.
Antlers are naturally shed in late winter and early spring by elk, white tail deer, moose, mule deer, and other deer. The antlers fall off naturally from the heads of the males just a few months after the fall mating season.
Shed hunters know the popularity of the antlers for their growing use in hobby collections and by a business such as our Peak Antler Company in the creation of high-quality custom furniture, various crafts, decor, and art. It is a money-making project for those hunters to roam in search of fresh antlers since the price is somewhere around $9 to $12 a pound at the low end of the scale and up to thousands of dollars for a matched set from a trophy bull elk.
Amazing and long-lasting works of art come about with the use of spectacular antlers found in nature, such as the examples below:
Elk Antler Coffee Table with Eagle Carved Moose Antler
A hand carved eagle made from a moose antler is in the middle of this beautiful coffee table topped with a half-inch beveled glass. The top antler points or tips are not shaved or cut so that the beauty found in nature is in its purest form.
European Throne Antler Chair
Made with antlers from elk and fallow deer, and decorated with genuine leather cushions, this does indeed look like a throne.
Antler mirrors can showcase the beauty and elegance of outstanding pieces made from natural resources. Antler sconces can illuminate a room and beautify the space.
Interior design trends in high-end homes as well as log cabins, vacation homes, and offices are returning to incorporating this type of rustic and back-to-nature decor into modern settings.
