Grand TrianonPrice: $180.00
Design by Paula Arntzen, 2010.
Named after the palace of King Louis XIV, Grand Trianon is a large, lightweight chandelier made of post-consumer coated Tyvek®. When illuminated, the Grand Trianon emits a soft checkerboard glow from behind its surface of folded slits. The impressive size and surface texture are a modern reference to the opulent décor found in France's Palace of Versailles.
