Wood frame roof top or wood frame chandeliers. Made from reclaimed wood, these chandeliers were inspired by the bell shaped roofs of the early 1900’s. We found a vintage wood frame roof that once topped a Victorian home and transformed it into a light for your home. Hang this chandelier over the farmhouse dining table or suspend it from the ceiling in a two story foyer. Either way these wood frame chandeliers will add vintage charm to your home.

There are many different roof shapes and they vary greatly from region to region. The main factors that influence the shape of roofs are the climate of the region and the materials available. There are so many roof shapes from almost flat to steeply pitched. There are dutch gable roofs, saltbox, hipped, mansard and A-frame roofs just to name a few. But we like this vintage bell shaped roof the best. This style of roof was most common in the United States during the Victorian era. These homes were ornate with wood lattice work and the bell shaped roof added to the detailed elegance of the period. The bell shaped roof was created much earlier by the famous French architect Philibert de L’Orme. Back in the 1500’s he was architect to Francis I of France and Henry II. Unfortunately, much of his work has disappeared but his French influence with Italian tendencies was continued by others in later years. Now we’re not saying that these wood frame chandeliers came from the original Chateau Neuf but no one is stopping you from thinking that.
