crystal bulbs

by Grace Bonney

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found myself paying more attention to the functionality of objects. I live in a small space, so if something doesn’t serve at least two functions or have a small footprint, it doesn’t cross the threshold. However, every now and then I get totally swayed by something that falls firmly into the decoration category. Enter these crystal bulbs from Lee Broom. Handmade from English full-lead crystal, each one has an intricate cut pattern and a brushed brass pendant fitting. I love the way this blends traditional and contemporary. I think it would look most impressive in a large grouping, but at $175 a piece, that’s not exactly in my price range. For now, I can keep eying these and imagining them grouped above my desk as a dramatic statement. Click here to check them out in more detail and order online. xo, grace
