Just in from Urban Chandy...
Check out what was just installed at BIG!NYC in Gowanus - a rustic door turned chandelier made by Urban Chandy, a small company that transforms building materials into beautiful chandeliers.
The chandelier featured in the photo is made from a door salvaged after Hurricane Sandy. It is on display at Gowanus BIG!NYC to inspire folks to consider buying a door and have Urban Chandy custom design one for you.
