(USA) – Schonbek unveils a rustic reimagination of the contemporary Crystal Empire line with the introduction of Crystal Empire Rustic.
Crystal Empire Rustic leads with a bold structure that is evident across the line’s three new pendants: six-light (CY1006N), eight-light (CY1008N), and ten-light (CY1010N). Through the application of thoughtful details, such as full-grain leather sourced from the Appalachian region and Bohemian Crystal accents, the fixtures convey the essence of the Rustic Collection’s characteristic pairing of timeless grace and raw beauty.
“With the use of locally-sourced leather, The Crystal Empire Rustic line serves as an extraordinary example of Schonbek’s ability to seamlessly combine various materials and textures to create eye-catching masterpieces perfect for today’s dynamic spaces,” comments Petra Oberhauser, Commercial Director, Schonbek. “Whether finished with black or white leather, the fixtures provide an elevated means for achieving a refined rustic aesthetic.”
Each fixture offers an elegant open teardrop shape constructed of precision-cut, meticulously stitched leather. All three pendants are furnished with candle-slips nestled on to metallic silver backplates drawn together through diligently crafted beams that connect to the fixtures’ centre.
An unexpected but brilliant compilation of materials, Bohemian Crystal accents bring sparkle to the base of each fixture’s lighting tube and a single large hand-cut crystal pendant is suspended in the centre to create a stunning focal point. With no visible hardware, the flat-back crystal creates a simple, yet elegant balance. The Crystal Empire Rustic fixtures are available in White Pass Leather with white internal metal arms and Grizzly Black Leather with black internal metal arms and finished with Clear Heritage Crystal.
