A Budding Bargain!

Wednesday, August 26, 2009 | Category: Budget Design, Lighting

I just purchased Currey and Co.’s Crystal Bud Chandelier for a client.  It ended up looking gorgeous in their spacious master bath- the Cupertino finish on its metal stems ended up coordinating nicely with their dark cabinets.

It’s funny how when you complete a long awaited installation, you end up seeing the installed piece everywhere…

…literally!

Today I happened to be flipping through Pottery Barn’s catalog, and I came across a chandelier that looked so similar to the Crystal Bud that it stopped me right in my tracks!

The Camilla 6-Arm also has a bud-like appearance- a combination of crystal leaves and iron branches.

They do look similar, don’t they? They could almost be identical twins…well maybe not identical- fraternal maybe?

They do look so similar. But, to be honest, I like the Currey piece better – it isn’t as busy & seems more graceful. Nice pick :)

I really love these chandeliers and have contemplated putting one in my breakfast nook for some time. From a practicality standpoint, how is the light output from something like this? My mind has a constant battle with pretty vs. practical when it comes to decorating my home.
