No, this isn’t a vintage find. This is the newly-introduced Huxley 1970s-style chandelier at John Lewis and Partners.
But it could well pass for one. I can imagine this sitting proudly in the expansive living room of some large modernist pile, a focal point above the conversation pit and circular fireplace, shining down in the shagpile carpet.
Or you could use it for your own modern-day home, a talking point, design statement and retro feature for any home, the 1970s or not.
The light offers up an antique brass finish for the frame, with 15 arms shooting out, each one holding a glass bulb holder in a smoked glass finish. Yes, smoked glass. It just had to be. Note that the bulbs are not included, so you might want to budget for 15 of those.
Another thing to consider is the height of your ceiling. This probably works best in a house with a higher ceiling for impact and practicality. You really don’t want to be banging your head on it.
If that works for you, £350 is the price. If it doesn’t, there is a smaller ceiling light version – smaller in both size and price.
