I am absolutely insanely obsessed with bamboo chandeliers. Call them what you want: Pagoda, Chinoiserie, Hollywood Regency, Faux Bamboo Lanterns. I. Want. One.
I have been obsessively searching every consignment and thrift store in Connecticut in search for a deal. These babies offer quite the range in price. For example, 1st dibs, has sold a Red Pagoda Chandelier by Pieces for $1750. Meanwhile, Shades of Light offers a 6 light lantern for $495 and a 4 light lantern for $189.
Even better, if you're lucky enough to score one at a consignment shop, you can sometimes get them for even less. But you need to be at the right place at the right time...and if you ever see one and don't want it for yourself, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
My gal Elizabeth from The Little Black Door found hers at a thrift store and painted it cherry red. (Photo below and also here).
And Ms. Jennifer from The Pink Pagoda found her amazing chandelier at a consignment shop and had a professional painter add a faux bamboo finish to it. The outcome is just incredible. Hard to imagine it's not original bamboo. (Photo below and read more about it here and here).
One thing's for sure, these are a hot commodity. Here are some of my favorite:
|Red Pagoda 1st Dibs | Pieces $1750|
|Shades of Light 4 Light Lantern $189|

What are your thoughts?
Do you have a favorite chandelier? Have you found a bargain on your own? Does anyone have a spare you're willing to ship to Connecticut?
