If you can get past the price tag, this light is actually pretty spectacular.

I’m sure you could get creative and find lots of surprising places to put these mini-chandeliers.

‘designed by new york-based Brit chris collicott, these mini-LED chandeliers operate on 3 AAA batteries (not included) and range in measurements from 5″ to 7″- adding a touch of elegance to those cramped areas. an adaptor is available separately. inspiration, according to Mr. Collicott: “Chandeliers are always so grand and aloof, I thought it would be fun to bring one down to size. The mini-chandelier’s portability creates opportunities for fun: hanging in a car, on a tree, in a closet, or grouped together — a chandelier-elier, so to speak.”‘

Stuart Haygarth Lighting

I think I first learned of Stuart Haygarth from Mocoloco when they did a post on his Tide Chandelier. After seeing it I wanted to start collecting colorful garbage to make something similar, but, of course, that idea got lost by the wayside.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen or heard of his work yet, I strongly encourage you to take a look. He uses collections of objects to create beautiful chandeliers- his quote will summarize his projects better than I ever could:

“The objects are normally collected in large quantities categorized and assembled in a way that transforms their meaning. My work is about giving banal and overlooked objects a new significance. The finished piece of work takes various forms such as chandeliers, installations, functional and sculptural objects.”

Prices range from 2,500 GBP to 12,000 GBP.
