Anthropologie Lighting – New!

October 27, 2006

Anthropologie Lighting - New!Don’t you just adore this fresh citron chandelier? These delicate lemon slices in handblown glass are simply lovely, I’d really like to place a few of these over a work table in the kitchen or in a trendy cafe over a bar. Problem is with nearly all of Anthropologie’s lighting, it’s soooo super expensive. Most of my clients would never throw down $3,000.00 for a light fixture, neither would I for that matter — for two reasons. For one, I get tired of material goods quite quickly, always looking to upgrade or replace with a new style. It’s not a good trait, I know. And reason numero deux, I’m a renter and certainly not able to replace current fixtures even if I did fall into a truckload of cash.

It’s still lovely to peek at these designs, despite how unattainable they are for most of us, and perhaps scout for something similiar that is more in our price range. I still love Anthropologie though. Sigh.

    i bet the effervescent chandelier would be fairly easy to replicate with some pretty christmas bulbs and a little bit of craftiness!

    hapus – That is a great idea, especially this time of year with all the many ornaments out there and bulbs. I bet you can use those “witch” balls too – do you know what I’m referring to? They are handblown glass orbs – lovely and delicate.

    Lola – I’m happy you like them. I saw the price tag and sighed though. It’s hard to see so many pretty things so OUT of reach.

    Yes these are great. :D I do get sad that Anthropologie prices are so high, one time I found a neglected lampshade in the upper corner of the store, with cobwebs on it.. but still it was 130 something. I know it would have been happier in my room ;) I said that it seemed a little neglected and the cashier snobbily said “oh That’s the Style…” (growing dust bunnies?)
    I can’t wait to discover more as I look through your blog!
