There are things that are adorable but make complete sense: babies, puppies, kittens, small phones, you get the point. Then there are things that are cute that make no sense: monkeys eating bananas, a ball of yarn and so on. A miniature chandelier would usually be sensibly cute. But putting that miniature chandelier in a light bulb? Boy, I don’t know why I love this so much.
And you’re going to have to love this a lot because the tiny chandelier will run you more than $600. Still, if chandeliers are now marks of excess, tiny chandeliers poke fun of that excess (and $600 tiny chandeliers poke fun at you for poking fun at excess).
Called the King Edison and designed by Young & Battaglia it combines the ornate old world with the simplicity of a bulb. The chandelier is made from brass, the glass is hand blown and the cable is braided. It’s fun, in a I will never pay 600 bucks for you kind of way. [Mineheart via DesignTAXI]
