Somehow we missed this at ICFF, and we aren’t really sure how we could have overlooked such a fabulous lighting design. Not only do these lovely chandeliers mimic the organic growth patterns of tree branches – but they are twice as nice, since they are made of recycled materials as well! Designer Christopher Poehlmann [2] salvages aluminum pipes from local scrap yards, and welds them together in pieces to create these gorgeous “New Growth” [2] chandeliers. Since each piece is made from found materials, stitched together bit by bit (sort of the way a tree grows) – each is completely unique — just like a living tree.

The big chandeliers are completely custom-designed (and prices reflect this), but if you want a cheaper piece of the New Growth [2] action, Christopher Poehlmann is going to start selling some of his smaller sconces through the Guild Catalog [3] this winter for around $700 a piece.

For all other orders, just contact Christopher directly and see what he can help you grow..
