There's not a hard edge in sight in the Come Rain Come Shine Chandelier ($4950) by Tord Boontje for Artecnica. Crocheted cotton, organza, silk and fabric flowers hug the round metal body underneath. Go with black for drama or choose the multicolored option for a playful statement piece.
The original Come Rain Come Shine was commissioned by the The British Council and created collaboratively between Boontje and
Coopa-Roca (Rocínha's Craftwork and Sewing Cooperative) based in Brazil. By employing women in an impoverished neighborhood for their craft skills, Coopa-Roca combines humanitarian values and artisanal production methods to create high-end artist pieces with a conscience.
