......the light fantastic!

The primary function of providing illumination has been elevated to an art form and pure fantasy with these extraordinary and delightful creations.

Archeo Venice Design has captured the ethereal beauty of Mariano Fortuny's original works in art glass. Stunning as shown in Neutral, also available in Amber, Aqua, Green, Ruby and Salmon.

The Cascade Luminaire Grand is available in custom sizes by Boyd Lighting - Kentfield Collection. Imagine a 10' long cascade over a staircase!

Created in 1956 by Tony Duquette for the opening gala of his Robertson Blvd. studios, the Splashing Water Chandelier, in the form of a fountain with drops suspended in mid-air, has been lovingly recreated by Remains Lighting. Shown in Ecru/Tea, and also available in his signature color combinations of Teal/Coral and Forest Green/Red.

Harco Loor Design twists lighting into the magical Diamond Flower Double/Red.

A gift from the sea - Ironies serves up the shell-encrusted, 12-Light Pallas Chandelier.

The Abalone Chandelier was originally unveiled as part of Duquette's one-man exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The original hangs in his own home, Dawnridge. The circa 1952 chandelier has been reproduced in exacting detail by Baker Furniture.
