The first time that my husband and I were looking for a place, I automatically knew I would have a chandelier somewhere…I guess the “Château de Versailles”* part of me was taking over…
So even before we find the place, I started to look around to find the dream masterpiece! I was looking for something Art Deco, Urban chic and Timeless. Something that will follow us no matter which type of apartment we will find or decor I will do.
Budget wise I didn’t want to spend more than 200$ especially since I was not looking for the crystal type of chandelier. I gave a try to West Elm, Home Depot , Wayfair , Lowe’s and nothing was matching my expectations. Knowing that I wanted something affordable I stopped by the IKEA website and…Boooom !!! “La pièce de résistance”* was here right in front of me !!
Easy to assemble and not so easy to install ( our apartment is a pre war building ) the ceiling was not ready for us … But, with some tricks, creativity, drawling here and there we made it!
Our Chandelier recalled later “The Death Star” was right on time for our Star Wars Marathon.
Note: As you can see we still have to fix the base and paint, for it to be finished.The Death Star Saga will continue…
