Wine Bottle Chandelier: Love It or Hate It?

I love the idea of recycling old wine bottles to create something new and useful. While dining at Bar Bambino — where I was inspired by their leather napkin rings — I couldn't help but notice the industrial yet chic chandelier. Empty wine bottles have been filled with tiny lights before being geometrically attached to a large wooden plank and drilled in to the ceiling. It definitely added an artistic feel to the restaurant and dining experience. While it's not something I would want for my home, I think the idea could be interpreted to create a beautiful decoration or fun lighting scheme for a party. What do you think?

We do these at Christmas. Red and green bottles filled with twinkle lights. One year we even had the bottles tilted and lights pouring into wine glasses.

I think if you get those glow sticks and placed them inside the bottles you could get a prtty cool effect. Think how pretty they would look on a deck or on some stairs to let you know where the party is at!!

I really like it! Although, I received a wine bottle 'candelabra' for Christmas that isn't so hot. :-P

Love it for a Wine Bar or restaurant but not the home, as stated.

Love it for a bar or a restaurant...I agree that it wouldn't be right in a home. But it looks pretty cool.

I love the idea of eco-friendly, *green* decor, that reuses pre-existing products/materials. Bravo! Danny Seo would be proud :-)

I love it! I think it's great. I don't know if I would have something like it my home - maybe if I had a great bar/entertaining area or something - but it's spectacular for a restaurant or bar!

This is one of those things you would look at twice because you can't believe someone was that clever. Martha, I'm not.

I love this. I think it's incredibly creative. I agree that I wouldn't want it in my home, but I think it would look great in a bar.
