maison21 has long admired this grand 66" brass chandlier from richard shapiro studiolo- so impossibly chic and over the top.
so m21 was quite amused to find this 35" homage en plasitque ($149) during a recent visit to the ikea christmas store! if maison21 was planning an outdoor fete this summer, or even had anywhere suitable to hang it in his garden, he would snap several of these up right now and store them until summer. maison21 is going back to buy the smaller 19" version for a minuscule patio upstairs at the maison21 atelier, where we've long sought a lightweight, weatherproof, yet chic lantern. we were so taken with the large version, and trying to figure out how the heck we'd ever find a use for it, that it didn't even occur to us to get the smaller version we could actually be using right now! hate when that happens....
ps- somebody needs to speak to ikea about their names for their products- really, "GLÄNSA LYSA", is just retartet.
pps- while you're at richard shapiro studiolo, check out their gilded iron etageres. maison21 desperately covets a pair of them.
