Candy Colored Chandis from Barovier&Toso

Okay, the word “chandi” is annoying, but these chandeliers are anything but. The Jolly Rancher-like colors take an elegant object and make it spunky. How about this fun way to add color with your lighting?

Barovier&Toso is an ancient glassmaking company, dating back to 1295. This makes them the oldest fmaily of glassmakers in the world. These particular Barovier pieces remind us of Dale Chihuly’s use of bright color &mdash maybe Chihuly took some inspiration from Barovier?

We found them on New England Home magazine’s Web site, and our Barovier&Toso contact says that the closest sources near DC are actually two stores in New York City:
