In the TV show Man Shops Globe, Anthropologie buyer Keith Johnson travels the world shopping for the store – dream job, anyone? In this week’s episode he commissions a chandelier, which is later bought by President Obama for his daughters’ (Sasha and Malia) White House bedroom. Can you guess its materials and country of origin? Note: the image shown here is from the same designer but not the commissioned Obama piece…

The Obama chandelier is made of plastic bottle tops and Barbie legs. We’re guessing that will be a first for White House light fixtures. The chandelier was made at the Magpie art collective in South Africa and cost $4,800. Good thing the Obamas – and not taxpapers – are paying for their own White House decor. Have you seen Man Shops Globe?
