About the Project
Kalkomey’s along with their interior designers Catherine Albritton and Daphne Kuykendall of design firm AKI decided on a classic round shape to match the shape of the table. They loved the idea of the chandelier bringing elegance and sparkle into the room. The bits of gold in the glass glitter with the light and the warm glow creates a ring of light. Each rod is different in diameter and also has an organic end to really have the fixture feel hand made and unique. This attention to detail makes what could be an ordinary chandelier, extraordinary.
We met with Carlyn and saw some of her work and the studio where her pieces are created. We were sold before they had even come up with the designs.
The design process was fascinating and collaborative. It involved Carlyn, Kyle, AKI (our interior designers), and my husband and me.
The design of the individual glass rods almost look as if they are dripping down. It makes the chandelier a fusion of formal and organic that’s exquisite.
