One of the things our clients love about our lighting line is how easily it can be customized and adapted to solve a specific design challenge. Nothing thrills us more than being presented with a design problem in need of a solution. You want a 25-foot triple ring chandelier? No problem.
That’s exactly what Michelle Koenig of Bruchele Interiors wanted for a new house on the Jersey Shore.
After collaborating closely with Michelle, Richard created the new fixture, and our master installer, Bob, and I trekked to the Shore to install it.
Our client was building a house in the tiny hamlet of Sea Girt, one of the many places that was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. We were happy to see that boardwalk repairs seemed to be coming along well.
Once we found the house, tucked between the beach and a nature preserve, we knew immediately where we would be installing this leviathan light fixture. It would hang three stories down through a staircase in the middle of this tower.
Twenty-five feet from the top.
We proceeded to lay out all the hardware and wiring.
And the Cristallo hand-blown glass globes. That’s the homeowner, Lynn, in the back.
Then John, the licensed electrician on the site, and owner of some of the world’s most awesome kneepads, installed the canopy.
Here he’s gently hooking up a Maya globe. By the way, remember that long shot of the staircase above? John is sitting on temporary scaffolding at the very top.
Bob courageously joins him, and gingerly hangs a Malina.
With the first ring and globes in place, Bob starts wiring up the second batch.
Carefully lowering it down.
Thankfully Bob and John can now work on more solid ground.
John tells a joke about people changing light bulbs. Bob finds it amusing.
The three rings of the Chandelier are in place.
And after some more wiring magic.
The view from below.
Bob is also a photography phenom. He took a lot of these masterful shots.
And here’s Lynn, the very happy owner.
We had a great Time in Sea Girt. Thanks for the delicious treats Lynn.
We hope that all areas that were affected by Sandy continue to build, thrive and prosper.
Till next time, Stay Radiant!
