The days when the only way to make a statement in your interiors through lighting designs, where using a formal crystal chandelier, are thankfully long gone. The world’s best designers are increasingly using light fixtures as the central artistic piece of the room.
While several designs find inspiration in nature, be it clouds or branches, numerous styles are purely geometric and abstract. Some lighting designs work in synergy with a space’s architecture, and others create a striking visual moment in a room otherwise lacking a focal point. No matter the size or shape, lighting designs suspended in midair possess a rare, gravity-defying quality and lure the eye upward.
L’Chandelier is a dreamy, elegant and luxurious lightning design, incomparable and impressive as the romantic Champs-Élysées avenue, frequently described “la plus belle avenue du monde” (“the world’s most beautiful avenue”). This luxurious symbol of Paris transformed into this beautiful handcrafted, polished brass Chandelier. L’Chandelier’s marvellous dancing shape was realized through the antique technique (Repoussé) used widely with gold and silver for fine detailed work, during 3rd century BC. L’Chandelier offers a fine balance of warm sophistication and metal edginess.
In the living room of a Palm Beach home designed by Aman & Meeks, a Takashi Murakami cartoon sculpture joins a text-based work by Mark Bradford (left) and a sculpture by Glenn Brown (right); a Jeff Koons mirrored piece is displayed over the mantel.

The walls are finished in Venetian plaster in a Benjamin Moore white.
Supernova Chandelier was born from the cataclysmic explosion of a massive star. The instant of a bright starburst that was suspended into fascinating lighting design. Supernovas can briefly outshine entire galaxies and radiate more energy than our sun will in its entire lifetime. The suspended brass particles of Supernova Chandelier will offer you a timeless, brightest and magnificent setting.
