Cut Glasses Chandelier
This chandelier has its roots in the past but its heart in the present.
Available as a single drop of 150 glasses (150+1) or double drop of 300 glasses (the +1 refers to John himself being the final craftsman who has brought together generations of others to create a truly unique work).
Other bespoke sizes are available to order.
The desire for a focal piece in the hotel bedroom that would sit comfortably in the Victorian building but would give the youth and vigour of a contemporary clientele gave rise to the Lego Chandelier
Replacing its traditional counterpart in a period premises or reinventing tradition for a modern build. The cast resin cornice can be backlit to give an edge to any setting.
