Desire/Acquire: Butterfly Chandelier

I've oohed and ahed about this gorgeous chandelier in the past, but that's no reason to not sigh over its beauty one more time. The Bodo Sperlein Niagra Chandelier ($45,000) features porcelain butterflies lit up by fiber optics. It is, indeed, an object of immense beauty. However, since I wouldn't pay over 45K for a car (unless it's an electric Tesla Roadster), I'm probably not going to drop major bank on a single chandelier.

Luckily, there's a much, much more affordable option that shares the butterfly motif. To see where to get it,


The Pottery Barn Kids Butterfly Chandelier ($79) is a fraction of the cost of the Niagra Chandelier, and that cost is reflected in the materials: The butterflies are constructed from heavyweight paper. However, I think that with the right accessories, and placed in a corner where it won't be touched or jostled too much, this kid-marketed butterfly chandelier could shine in a feminine home.

i love anything that sparkles... but most definately don't have the budget to indulge. i love the first chandelier but it seems pretty impractical for most homes. The second one is more versatile and could even be a diy project- imagine making the butterflies out of copper and putting it outside as a wind chime/ light.

Love it! Obviously the first one is so luxe and more opulent, but the second is spare and cutesy in a very nice way. :)

I agree, it would soooooo cute in a baby girl's room, Danixk! I have always had a love for butterflies...I had two of those giant nylon ones hanging from my bedroom ceiling when I was kid/teenager.
