The opening photo shows a Capiz Chandelier. I’ve never thought of Capiz as scallops, but it surely is.
I’ve loved the look of capiz lighting for years. The natural shell diffuses light beautifully. It has a clean beach house feeling without being kitschy. The white translucent material is natural without being rustic.
Inexpensive Capiz Shell Lighting
