'L' for Lighting Decorating

The Sara Chandelier

This was one of four turquoise chandeliers in yesterday’s post, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It’s stunning — the kind of light that makes the room.

I think the craze for this light can be traced back to Sarah Jessica Parker’s home featured in Elle Decor back in 2010. It was designed by Eric Hughes and featured an Egyptian hand-blown glass chandelier from Liza Sherman Antiques. The light is still sold through them for $7800.

There is another version available from Canopy Designs: the Sara Chandelier. They sell to the trade only, but I was able to find it on several sites retailing for about $2500.

The frame color can be customized and the glass shades come in various colors (Aruba Blue, Twilight Blue, Antique, White, Garnet, Coral, Lavender, BK Green, Pink). Clearly people are into the blue options though; they are by far the most popular.

It’s new and old at the same time, and it isn’t style specific so it’s versatile enough to work in a variety of homes. Modern? Victorian? Country? Industrial? A builder-grade suburban home lacking in architectural details? Add this chandelier. It will work.

    I find this ugly,dumb looking-it is without grace or charm and looks like a cheap thing to manufacture and couldn’t cost more than a few hundred dollars(if that much) to make.

    Stunning! I love that you choose out-of-the-ordinary pieces, when so many others seem to gravitate towards sameness. I learn a lot here, thank you Nicole.

    Tastes and opinions are so curious – if I bought a home with this light in it, I’d take it down. Just not my cup of tea at all. But so many people love it. Thank goodness there are so many lighting styles to choose from for all tastes (and budgets)!

    That would be pretty easy to DIY for around $250, give or take how much you spend on the glass shades. It’s just a couple of hoops, a basic hanging lamp and some chain. That would be a fun project!
