These chandeliers hang in the Cooper House. The House was designed in the Prairie Style and these chandeliers reflect the aesthetic.
The lights are constructed of ribbon mahogany, shoji material, and a light fixture from Home Depot that fit the decor. The shoji material was purchased from Ed Crowell, Shoji Designs, www.shojidesigns.com. He is fantastic to deal with, has a nice product, and I highly recommend checking him out. He does nice work himself and has good links on his site.
The chandeliers stand 5’6” without the downrod and hang from a 16’ ceiling. I made 3 models, hung them in the room, and had the clients choose what they liked best. The models were highly useful because the scale of the room was larger than anything that I had ever dealt with before. It helped both the client and myself see it life-size in the actual space.
I also designed and built the light trough and sconce lights that cap off the rock columns.
