The difference between the chandeliers by Michael McHale Designs and other chandeliers is the materials. While the dripping crystals on a McHale may be Swarovki’s best, the base holding everything together is composed of distressed brass pipes and fittings, worn from years of use and reclaimed from building sites. The company has also been acquiring fittings from Katrina building sites in Mississippi and Lousianna, as well as from local sites in New York.

    Gorgeous. Michael McHale certainly knows his chandeliers… Thanks for sharing with us his beautiful work.

  • I thought so too Franki–kind of pretty meets gritty, with the patina on the old fittings–it’s a neat idea, mixing old and new, and still looks quite refined.

  • Interesting. This does indeed lend a different look to the pieces. I’m having chandelier weakness these days… so your timing is perfect.

    Interesting backstory to nice light fixtures as well. I’ll have to go take a look at some of the others. How clever.
