Industrial MOD Must Have: Urban Chandy

Brooklyn based Urban Chandy creates really cool industrial Mod chandeliers that combine Edison and antique bulbs suspended from rescued and reclaimed wood and other materials like old-fashioned tin ceiling panels and doors. The combined effect is mesmerizing. Founder and designer Cassidy Brush told me that Urban Chandy grew from a single unique lighting fixture that she created for her office. (see pic below) A former fashion sales executive and entrepreneur found a gap in the lighting market without even realizing it. The rest is history..everyone wants a "chandy!'

Mosaic Urban Chandy at BKLYN Designs

The Mosaic Urban Chandy showcased at BKLYN DESIGNS featured a 45" X 45" base made out of Northeastern yellow pine - some of the pieces retained its natural aged finish while others were stained ebony, white, gray and orange. And for a little bling, the 50 pendants were held within beautiful copper hardware making the piece really distinctive!

See the VINE:

All of the chandeliers are made to order. See some more of Cassidy's earlier eye candy creations:
