Meyda Lighting introduces chandelier design used in a restoration project

Posted

YORKVILLE — A local lighting company has created a chandelier design that is featured in a Rhode Island restoration project.

The Belmont Chapel Chandelier — created by Meyda Lighting, 55 Oriskany Blvd., — is featured in the restoration of the Belmont Chapel, in Newport, Rhode Island. The Belmont Chapel Foundation was established to restore and preserve the 1886 architectural and historic landmark for future generations.  

The Belmont Chapel Chandelier is featured in Meyda’s American designed, handcrafted Gothic Lighting Collection.

The 55-inch wide chandelier projects ambient light from 12 ivory faux candlelights while 12 downlights deliver functional illumination on surfaces below. The overall height ranges from 54 to 101 inches as the chain can be adjusted, the announcement added. 

Floral and leaf designs adorn the perimeter of the Gothic styled, wrought iron chandelier.

A bit of history about Meyda Lighting 

Meyda Lighting has been making decorative lighting for nearly 50 years. Thousands of styles are available, with new designs created every week, according to the company.

Meyda Lighting was founded when Meyer Cohen was asked by his wife Ida, to build a stained glass window in their kitchen so they wouldn’t have to view the vintage cars in their neighbor’s driveway. Meyer was a master craftsman and inventor, and Ida, was a natural business woman. What began as a hobby evolved into a decorative lighting manufacturing company.
