Design by Paula Arntzen, 2010.
La Couronne, "the crown", is an airy chandelier masterfully designed from two pieces of shiny, thin copper foil material. The reflective vertical strips around the two-tier lamp luminously display a burst of color and dimension, while the dome shape resembles the regal chandeliers of stunning palace ceilings.
An optional electrical cord & socket set can be included for use with a 60-watt lamp. This optional upgrade is offered with a Textile or Rubber Cord and is for plug in only.
Optional cord set is plug-in only.
Material(s): Copper foil, textile, rubber
Bulbs: 1 X 60W incandescent lamp (not included)
