Top Picks: Unusual Chandeliers
Mercedita Chandelier from Anthropologie
Anthropologie is another one of my fave shops. The store is curated to contain pieces with a vintage-y look. The pieces scream with character, especially this chandelier! This lamp was inspired by artisans in Ecuador who use tagua nuts in many of their designs. The Mercedita is made of tagua nuts and metal, and the colors shimmer when lit.
Atlantis Suspension Light
I've admired the Atlantis Suspension Light for a long time. The draped chain shimmers under the light of this chandelier. It reminds me of a runway look I might see during Fashion Week. It's so well sculpted, I'm totally in love!
Coco Bead Chandelier
I admire designers that create pieces purely from vision! Designer Laura Liess created this one of a kind piece for a client's living room. This piece is environmentally friendly, using coconut beads and shells as the structure. Even when it's not lit it's stunning, don't you think?

Found Objects Chandeliers
I'm most impressed with artists who create pieces from found objects. It's really difficult to do! Stuart Haygarth is one of my favorite lighting designers. He's able to visualize what every day pieces would look like in several different forms. In this case, he created a light fixture using nail polish bottles. From afar, you wouldn't even know what the piece was made of! It's stunning!
