Shed Antler Chandeliers That Steal The Show

These eight striking light fixtures are a stylish-yet-classic homage to Rocky Mountain wildlife.



Our Colorado homes represent our love for the beauty and adventure of the great outdoors. Shed antler chandeliers have become increasingly popular as a stylish-yet-classic homage to Rocky Mountain wildlife, and they are an effective design element no matter the interior design style—from contemporary farmhouses and minimalist abodes to traditional rustic retreats.

These eight shed antler chandelier styles can easily add a rustic-chic air to your home, whether you live in a downtown Denver high-rise or a slope-side Steamboat Springs lodge.

1. A fallow fixture

This chandelier design is crafted of fallow deer and whitetail deer antlers, with a rich, oiled-bronze finish, black electrical components, and industrial Edison bulbs, making it a great addition to a mountain-modern home.

2. Large and in charge

Crafted from elk, moose and deer antlers, this chandelier is the quintessential standalone centerpiece, perfect for a great room, dining room, entryway or other large space in a rustic mountain lodge.

3. An antler orb

Five Edison bulbs are suspended within this globe chandelier, crafted from naturally shed Colorado elk antlers—the perfect pop of modern drama for a high-ceilinged kitchen, dining room, or foyer.

4. The top tier

This three-tiered fixture comprised of large, naturally shed whitetail deer antlers can easily blend into the all-white modern trend, as well as rustic farmhouse styles.

5. The buck stops here

Over six feet tall and wide, this impressive six-point elk antler chandelier emits a warm amber glow. The candle-like down-lighting illuminates the mica and rawhide in the hand-crafted dome of the iron base, making it the perfect addition to a rustic or transitional mountain manse.

6. On an axis

The axis deer have a unique, natural curve to their antlers, which inspired this chandelier’s wave-like design. A soft neutral wash allows the antlers’ natural beauty to shine while maintaining a cool, modern palette.

7. Gray for days

The biggest trend in modern interior design has been the color gray, which makes this sleek and sophisticated light fixture a great choice for modern Colorado homes.

8. A little bit extra

An elegant, swirling pattern of elk and mule deer antlers makes this extra-large chandelier a true showstopper—the perfect statement piece that could even command a sizable resort-style setting.
