I first became obsessed with tumbleweeds after admiring an artfully displayed collection at Dosa 818, Christina Kim's LA loft. So I took note when I spotted a tumbleweed chandelier making the rounds on Pinterest. A quick Google search turned up a surprising source, which led me straight back to Dosa. Small (design) world.
The maker of the tumbleweed chandelier in question is Jean Landry, a set designer based in Marfa, Texas, who spent 20 years as a modern dancer ("It took me all around the world and greatly informed my sense of space and how we move through it," she says). Jean, as it turns out, is a great friend of Christina Kim, and she offers her lighting through Dosa. Full circle.
