Light is everything; therefore, lighting often commands my design. It’s not a secret that I have an addiction to lamps…I have more than anyone, even any interior designer, should. However, I have moved on to another obsession that is even more fabulous (and more expensive). Chandeliers are rocking my world- the more FUTURISTIC the better.

And no wonder- she is a prodigy of the beloved lighting designer, Lindsey Adelman. Her seemingly-simple geometric forms are actually complex constructions that become literal works of art. Below are just a few of my favorites: 1) Vice 2) SHY 3) Maxhedron 4) Helix Floor

The vast array of scale, shapes and colors truly set a tone, continuing your well thought out interior scheme. I recently presented several of my favorite finds to the readers of Sarah Sarna‘s fab lifestyle blog and I’d like to share them with you here…
