Materials to DIY Shelves Like These?

Good Questions

Q: I love these shelves and think that I could reproduce them fairly easily with stock wood and trim from Home Depot. A little black oil paint and they should look great. But I am stuck on the chrome tubing that is used to separate and support the shelves.

Does anyone know of a source for pretty chrome tubing and fittings that could approximate this look? I checked the plumbing department at the Home Depot but wasn't thrilled with the options there (silver, but not polished). I am looking for something shiny!
