This is not a chandelier that you can buy at Amazon but still as we like chandeliers, it is always nice to admire something different. We also like chandeliers made of recycled materials and there is a lot of creativity and innovation in this field. This chandelier called Northern Fleet can be found in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and was made in 1988 by Deborah Thomas with recycled broken glass. When it was sold the first time it only had a single light bulb! when it was resold in 2010 it was then fit with halogen lights. She has made recycled glass chandeliers for theatres and even for homes. Another example of how something beautiful and classy can be made out of recycled material.

Claire Requa has a truly international background; born in NYC, she was raised in Jamaica, moved to LA and now she has been living in Copenhagen, Denmark for a number of years. There she started a shop and design studio trying to give a new lease of life to old objects but later started to create new things too starting from chandeliers. We show you the black version but you can find the same chandeliers in other colors too. And it was one of her chandeliers that caught our attention, very simple objects and yet so elegant with a touch of baroque. But it is not all about chandeliers, a look at all the things Claire creates here.
We have found a chandelier for today and is an interesting combination of metal and crystal with a contemporary look. Still this chandelier has a modern look that will look good in many types of home decor. It is also the right type of chandelier for a large bathroom or a very modern kitchen. It will have to be assembled but that will not be a difficult task the only thing you have to pay attention is to the fact that there are three different sizes of crystals. The good thing about this chandelier is that it looks a lot more expensive than it actually is. You can see more details here.
You should have a look at David Taylor’s designs here there is something for everyone. From pendant lights to silver candlestick holders these designs are very original. David Taylor also designs lamps and lighting for public spaces which you can see here. David Taylor was born and lives in Sweden.
Geraldine Gonzales is very creative, she studied Applied Arts in Paris and first worked as a shoe designer and then became a sculptor now she creates exquisite objects made of anything from pearls to papier mache. While she makes many different types of objects (and you can see a few on her website including some fascinating shop windows) it is impossible not to like her Jellyfish Chandelier that you can see in the photo.
It looks a bit like a giant spider especially if you go for the black version but there is not denying that this chandelier would be extremely useful in a large room. It was designed by Ron Gilad in 2003 and it can be still bought, you can have a look here for the list of stores selling it. This chandelier with its modern look can be adjusted to provide the light where it is mostly needed. Ton Gilad was born in Tel Aviv in 1972 and now lives in New York. His designs, while minimalist, have a certain sense of humor.
