Ikea Stockholm Chandelier Hack

stockholm hack

Materials: Stockholm chandelier

Description: After pricing vintage Sputnik-type chandeliers, as well as new ones at DWR or Jonathan Adler, we decided we could not tap our retirement funds to splurge on one. We kind of liked the idea of the new Ikea Stockholm chandelier, but our hearts still yearned for that Russian space-satellite vibe. So, we purchased the Stockholm and performed a simple hack on it – we put the acrylic spokes in randomly rather than in the manner prescribed by the directions. Magic. We love it. (Including a pic of the original Stockholm (below), as well as our faux-Sputnikified version.)
