Firefly Chandelier

This is one of those projects that sits for six months before starting, and then it only takes a day to execute. Leaves me wondering why I waited so long.


It doesn’t look like much in the photograph, but in meat-space it’s mesmerizing.

Six rechargeable LED tea lights independently spin and subtly illuminate the ceiling. It can really set the ultra-lounge mood.

The drawbacks? You have to take it down and remove the tea lights to recharge them. It’s a little ritualistic, but could be fun, like warming up the fondue pot.

The plus side? Simple and elegant kinetic mood lighting! It’s like a little glowing solar system. It’s hard to take your eyes off them.
