High/Low: Arctic Pear Chandelier

Julie Carlson November 18, 2013

The Arctic Pear chandelier from London-based Ochre has defined glamor for the past few years (if light fixtures can achieve “it” status, this one has), so it was only a matter of time before lower-priced imitators emerged. There have been several reinterpretations of the design; the most recent one comes from the White Company in London. We talked to Andrew Corrie of Ochre a couple of days ago, and you might be surprised by his take on it all.

Above: The Arctic Pear Chandelier from Ochre, a London design studio and shop that has two New York outposts and showrooms across the country. Made of clear glass drops suspended from a bronze or nickel frame, the chandelier comes in sizes ranging from 18 inches in diameter to 48 inches in diameter, and prices start at $4,060 and go up to $11,560. How does Corrie of Ochre feel about the imitators? “We tend to get a flurry of orders when companies knock us off, especially when the imitation is low quality,” he says. “People recognize the integrity of the original.” Photography courtesy of Jessica Helgerson Interior Design

Above: The White Company’s Solid Glass Orb Ceiling Light is £350. In the US, Robert Abbey’s Bling Collection Large Deep Chandelier is another lookalike for $1,793.91 at Lamps Plus.
