High/Low: Arctic Pear Chandelier
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
The Arctic Pear chandelier from London-based Ochre has defined glamor for the past few years (if light fixtures can achieve "it" status, this one has), so it was only a matter of time before lower-priced imitators emerged. There have been several reinterpretations of the design; the most recent one comes from the White Company in London. We talked to Andrew Corrie of Ochre a couple of days ago, and you might be surprised by his take on it all. Above: The Arctic Pear Chandelier from Ochre, a London design studio and shop that has two New York outposts and showrooms across the country . M ade of clear glass drops suspended from a bronze or nickel frame, t he chandelier comes in sizes ranging from 18 inches in diameter to 48 inches in diameter, and prices start at $4,060 and go up to $11,560. How does Corrie of Ochre feel about the imitators? "We tend to get a flurry of orders when companies knock us off, especially when the imitation is low quality," he says. "People recognize the integrity of the original." Above: The White Company's Solid Glass Orb Ceiling Light is £350. In the US, Robert Abbey's Bling Collection Large Deep Chandelier is another lookalike for $1,793.91 at Lamps Plus. For similar discoveries, browse the 90 posts in our High/Low Design gallery.
