When I first saw this chandelier in the virtual pages of Lonny magazine, I chuckled at the side note describing it as "an audacious flourish." That's pretty much what this is: it's not just a chandelier (which we've seen in kitchens before); it's a chandelier in the shape of a large sailing boat, and it completely steals the show.

Given the look of the rest of the kitchen — the dark floors, the oriental rug, the upholstered dining chairs — I think the chandelier surprisingly fits right in. I'm incredibly curious who makes this chandelier, but Lonny unfortunately didn't give the source. (I can imagine the price, though.)

What do you think? Do you find it audacious and delightful, too?
