Then yesterday the new Pottery Barn catalog arrived and low and behold- look at what a similar chandelier they are featuring. I don't know how to feel about this. On the one hand, I feel my taste has been validated if such a big store has picked a similar style. On the other, I'm kinda bummed- like, 'hey, that was my taste!'
That said, Pottery Barn clearly missed some things. For one-- this is not made of wood. Secondly, look at how the ends are truncated. I don't mind this so much at the bottom , but the top of the other one was so gorgeous, the way it kept the eye moving up and down the piece. Actually the more I look at them together the more compelling the lines of the original one are to me.
Anyway as I said this is a funny thing to blog about because I don't figure we have any place for either one, but there we are.
