Now these stick chandeliers, designed by Jeff Jones, look so simple, but make such an impact! The sticks are old (sorry, vintage) tobacco sticks that were used to hang dry tobacco. The cord are wrapped in brightly-colour fabric and treaded through the wood, with a simple light bulb at the end. They are incredibly striking!Hudson in Oakland California. It takes a pretty traditional-looking restaurant and definitely spices it up. Most of the lights in the restaurant seem to be done by the same designer, and the effect is pretty cool. He also makes some pretty neat lights out of organ pipes, but I couldn't find a good picture of them! If I can dig one up I will have to share.
Thanks to Remodelista (where else?) for the awesome find.
