DIY – chandeliers

二月 20, 2009

I have always liked chandeliers. It can be that one dominating element defines the mood of a room. Chanderliers are elegant, expressive, and massive. I think it works the best when the there is a big contrast between the room and the chanderlier itself, in style, color, or contour complexity.

The sad part is that chanderliers are expensive. I will never spend hundreds of dollars on one (at least not in the next 10 years). For our neat and simple living room, I was invisioning to spice it up with a beautiful retro styled chandelier. After couple days of looking around, I realized that we couldn’t afford one. So this is what I did. It took me 4-5 nights of work, about 1-2 hours each night.  The most challenging part is making it as symmetrical as possible with free hand drawing.

Here are some other cool DIY chandeliers I found on the web. Pretty inspiring stuff. Hope you will find them inspiring also.

It turns out, I actually know people who worked on this photograph. What a small world! Now I can give each of them credit =]

The Photographer was Adam Chinitz. Assistant was Christopher Annis (my friend, check out his website!). The Room design is by Drake Design.
