Very whimsical. It doesn't look like it would cast a lot of light, but it's so decorative and eye-catching.

I saw this in Traditional Home magazine last fall along with jade curtain rings and tiger-eye countertops at $24,000/sq ft. It was all about stuffing every nook and cranny with semi-precious gems. It just about sent me over the edge with thoughts that this is where the bailout money is going.

Hi! I loved it the moment I first saw it! That is turquoise.....Lordy!

Then I found out it was designed by the daughter of very old........(they aren't old.......oh i guess; they are....because we are!) friends of my husband's..!!

Tommy and Patty Skouras.....their daughter.........I think I met her years ago when she was a teenager working in her mom's antique store.....

just google "Marjorie Skouras".....her light fixtures are absolutely brilliant.......in my opinion!!

Her grandfather was one of the first Hollywood producers!!


talent does run in families!!! No question! Her mom is an amazing interior decorator...........the apple falls not far from the tree!

ps I don't think she got any bailout money!!

Great shot of this in the new House Beautiful COLOUR issue. Makes the room.

Penelope: Well, no. The designer of this lovely object, and it is truly lovely, is not getting bailout money. I would never blame the creators of these beautiful objects for our problems.

But the context in which I first saw it was decorating with semi-precious gems. I daresay some of those banksters have been good customers and will not give up their gilded-age lifestyles at our expense.

IMHO, if there is any justice, we will one day be touring their homes as we now do those of the previous robber barons. I love to tour the great estates up the Hudson River, but those people had way too much money.

It looks cool, but how does the light get out?

Decorno said...

LB - I was kinda wondering the same thing... and does it case weird ball-like shadows on the walls? Maybe.

Gypmar said...

YES. I fell in love with this in House Beautiful. Then I thought, "how does the light get out?" Then I thought, "who cares?"

s. said...

Yeah, but the weird ball-like shadows would be beautiful!

And, yes, Penny; please do control yourself.

Yes, love for the beach. I could never commit to a color though.

I think it's in the new H.B.

I like Penelope's style of writing. I can hear her voice in it.
