Chilean Red, Donald Lipski and Jonquil LeMaster

Even with a name that is a clever anagram for the word ‘chandelier,’ the Chilean Red could easily be mistaken for a sculptural art installation. Sculptor Donald Lipski collaborated with fellow designer Jonquil LeMaster to create this masterpiece designed for the grandeur caves of a winery, to be specially erected at the Kathryn Hall Vineyards in Rutherford, California. Boasting 1,500 glittering Swarovski crystals and mimicking the surfaces of grape vines through its texture and branches, this chandelier is a sight to behold.

Empire Suspension, Luxxu

“Empire Suspension” is an apt name for this chandelier adorned by a layer of gold plated brass and crystal glass. A new, more minimalistic version of the “Empire Chandelier” (that was inspired by the famous Empire State Building), this candelabrum by Portugal-based brand Luxxu will add flair into your living space.

VELLUM, Brabbu

A contemporary lighting piece, VELLUM was inspired by ancient manuscripts – where messages were written in vellum (a fine and translucent parchment made from calf skin). This unique chandelier is composed by hammered brushed aged brass, and decorates your home with a piece of history. And no, you don’t need to be an archaeologist to admire this exquisite work of art.

Stalagmite Chandelier, Timothy Oulton

Turn your living space into an opulent cavern fit for a king. The Stalagmite chandelier is inspired by the crystallised rock formations that cultivate over centuries on cave floors, mixing geological magnificence with distinctly modern glamour. Its organic, romantically arched frame comes in warm, rich matt brass or natural steel.
