We were delighted to see that Consumer Reports featured one of our chandeliers in their Kitchen Planning and Buying Guide this month.
Consumer Reports contacted us a while ago about our Silver Spoon Pendant Chandelier Light Fixture, hand-made by an artisan right here in the United States. The artisan is very clever in the way he crafts up to 80 vintage silver plate spoons into each stunning upcycled chandelier. Each piece is custom made to order and, of course, each piece is unique.
Consumer Reports showed a photo of the “spoondelier” in its March 2016 issue of Consumer Reports Kitchen Planning & Buying Guide. If you are a subscriber, you can see for yourself! It is part of an article on page 23 of the Buying Guide called “Get the Look” and it is an item titled Whimsical Light Fixtures. They commented on the personality of hand-crafted lights and also mentioned French collectibles, wood accents and reclaimed wood and distressed furniture in their very nice roundup.
We stock a range of different upcycled vintage spoon chandeliers — or spoondeliers as some people call them. They are all hand-crafted to order.
The spoondeliers are so beautiful that the Trashformers TV show featured them in one episode on FYI Networks as an example of innovative upcycled design!

We’re pleased that the chandeliers are getting so much media attention as we think they are wonderfully unique pieces and a very interesting take on hand-crafted and vintage lighting.
If you read our blog regularly (subscribe here!) then you’ve seen some of the chandeliers in our client spotlights. They are so pretty… let me give you a little tour!
This is the vintage teacup and spoon chandelier our customer Marie-Louise in Haute-Normandie, France bought from us. She had us ship it far across the Atlantic ocean so it could take a starring role in her charming vintage French kitchen. (Read the full Vintage Teacup Chandelier post with more photos.)
Below you can see how Barbara in Cambridge, MA, displayed her teacup and spoon chandelier in her kitchen. Barbara said: “I love the chandelier and get many, many compliments on it.” See the whole post and more kitchen photos here.
Our clever customer Kelley F. in Houston, TX, adapted her chandelier, crafted from a vintage tea service, by using coffee cups in place of the vintage teacups. Read the whole Tea Party Chandelier post with more photos.
Finally, we loved how the Tupelo Honey Cafe in Downtown Greenville, SC, featured the vintage tea service chandelier in their restaurant, just in time for their grand opening.
Doesn’t it look wonderful? Check out our guide to chandelier styles here, or browse all the upcycled teacup and spoon light fixtures on our website or contact us by email for more information. And then put the kettle on for tea!
