Design Daily: Chamont Chandelier by Jonathan BrowningAuthor:Sarah Virginia White
It’s nearing Halloween, which means that skeletons and spooky design are on the brain—which might explain why I’m loving the vertebral appeal of the Chamont Chandelier by Jonathan Browning right now. With six borosilicate glass cylinders set along its solid brass spine, this pendant light reminds me of a stand-alone backbone hanging in a natural history museum—but this version is much more (wait for it) illuminating.
The Chamont fits right into the design aesthetic of Jonathan Browning Studios, which takes inspiration from Beaux Arts classicism and modern industrial design when creating its lines of lighting, furniture and hardware. (Housed in a former newspaper-publishing factory in San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood, one might argue that the studio benefits from an architectural muse.)
Take a look at some of the tighter shots to really get a feel for the craftsmanship that goes into this chandelier (each cylinder is hand-carved with frosted ellipses), which shown in the Lite Antique Bronze finish, but is also available in Oil Rubbed Bronze, Nickel and Black Bronze finishes. Available by order through David Sutherland in Los Angeles, De Sousa Hughes in San Francisco, or the Jonathan Browning Studios.
