dreamland

In the August 2008 issue of World of Interiors is probably the best 'boat' chandelier I've ever seen (complete with little lifeboats!).
Designed by Jean-Gabriel Domergue in the 1930's, the fixture dominates the owner's library. If I had a library, this is just the type of fixture I would want! Something playful and beautiful; you could of course make the corelation between knowledge and travel if you want to be really 'deep'. Check out the beautiful ceiling in this library as well as the labels on the bookshelves! What a great room (but i would have used more subsantial shelving, also in white, and organized the books a bit more!

Muriel Brandolini, a design goddess, has used this chandelier (or a similar one) a couple of times. You have great taste!

Every time I see this ship-delier, I cannot help but think of you and your ship coming in!
