Wouldn’t think that couture fashion designer Elie Saab and furniture maker Currey & Company would have too much in common. Well this fall they do…in the form of stunning red-carpet-black-tie-ball appropriate evening gowns and one-playful-glass-beaded-chandelier.
Okay…was browsing through lighting with TE on Sunday. We were trying to find images of the perfect chandelier for a little thing we are working on…we came up dry after looking through a million websites. We found lots of nice lighting but nothing quite perfect. The cool thing was that while browsing with him, I saw quite a few light fixtures that I hadn’t seen before. Then, last night, for no apparent reason, I decided to methodically go through every single runway show from Paris Fall 2014 couture week from earlier this month.
When I saw the Elie Saab fashion show, filled with beautiful gowns…and when I saw the series of pink, coral, burgundy beaded ombre and dip dyed style dresses, I remembered a chandelier that I had seen with the same shape and coloration that was on Currey & Company’s site by designer Marjorie Skouras (who happens to be the sister of a friend of mine). Bingo…and there you have it…today’s fashion forward!
Anyhooo…looks like the gradient color “ombre” look is still in vogue on both the runway and the home front!

Would you take the dress or the light fixture…or both? Best of friend AM did once have a fascination with the color pink in home decor…wonder if she would take the chandelier and find good use for it? I would definitely take the first dress.
Shop the post: The chandelier retails for $5,240 and can be purchased by clicking here. Wonder how much the dresses cost?
P.S. Looks like the chandelier came out before the dress by the way. So in this case it should be a furniture forward!
