Petit VERTIGO

I never thought that choosing a light fixture would be so difficult. I mean all my life I have had inherited light fixtures; old and valuable crystal chandeliers from the beginning of the 19th century. It didn’t even cross my mind that some day I would fall in love with a house that would not match the valuable light fixtures I had. Nor would it seem possible that this kind of house would be my home. My dream house, a place where I feel secure and free. My safeharbour.

When we moved to our new home, I was willing to give up all the other antiques I had been surrounded with my entire life, except for the crystal chandeliers. My husband had told me all along that they would not match the house. But as stubborn as I am, I insisted to see them in place because sometimes odd combinations are the best. In this case my Mr. Know-it-all was right; the chandeliers looked ridiculous in the house. I took them to the garage. And I dare to say that we are the only family that has in fact even today a 19th century antique chandelier hanging from the garage ceiling! 

After giving up the chandeliers I was lost. It had never crossed my mind that only after a light fixture a room is dressed. I studied the internet throughout the nights after the kids were asleep. It seemed impossible to find what I was looking for. Until I found the Vertigo. 

Vertigo. The modern chandelier that is a true eyecatcher. I love everything about it. It looks unique. It is very light in weight so it moves by the air flow in the room. I cannot deside whether it resembles a hat or a dragonfly but I can tell you this, it is a very stylish and contemporary with exceptional design. It creates an intimate space under the light and it is a great space divider in an open concept room.

Vertigo chandelier was created by French designer Constance Guisset, born in 1976. Guisset has proven to be a great designer of our time and luckily she was brave enough to change her extensive business studies to designing. She gets her inspiration out of movement, lightness and surprise. Constance Guisset has her own studio in Paris.

Merci bien, Constance. Je l’adore.

The dining nook needed an eye catcher and space divider which Vertigo provides. The round shape of Vertigo continues to the livingroom foot stools and to the Mandala over the fireplace.
