From a young age, like many little girls, I fawned over butterflies, scribbling them everywhere in crayon. In fact, I even wrote this poem in kindergarten:
Butterflies are pretty things
Floating lightly with their wings
Higher, higher in the sky
Oh how I love the butterflies.
Nowadays my adoration of the insect is fleeting, and I actually find them rather lame when reproduced (thanks Mariah Carey). But, when a product like the Bodo Sperlein Niagra Chandelier for Lladró ($45,000) sails my way, I resort to that childhood fascination. The design pays tribute to Lladró's love for nature, taking the magic of the forest and its ethereal creatures and turning them into contemporary fixtures for the home. If this chandelier doesn't have you penning poems, what really does?
