Garden Party | Conran 

I was thinking about those caged chandeliers that I showed you on Friday. Wire objects always appeal to me - their armature forms make me want to grab a pencil and draw them. So I went looking for some more. These colourful ones from Conran are fun. They have a sort of 1960s 'Bewitched' feel to them don't you think? And they are actually quite big - almost a meter high! Not sure what I would do with them. If I had a very white Mod house (which I don't) they would look very groovy swinging in the breeze. I do find their shape quite inspiring especially the slightly off centred, onion shaped one. 

These are very handsome birdcages, above, especially the one on the left which has a marvelous tiled zinc roof that will turn to a soft powdery white finish if you leave it outside in the elements for very long. All fun and completely frivolous wired items that caught my attention at the Conran shop.

I love these fun wire chandeliers. I was at a friend's furniture-making shop the other day and noticed the most incredible square chandelier hanging. He'd been commissioned to make one, and then made another just for fun. I told him he had to hang it in his window, because it would sell in a flash.
