Objects of Lust: Angus Hutcheson Lighting

Those crafty Scandis are at it again -- selling strangely compelling light fixtures that I want but can't have.

This time, it's Danish decor e-shop The Moood that has these kinda weird but nonetheless awesome lights. And thanks to a reader tip and Google Language Tools, I can actually read the site.

Turns out, the lights were designed by a Brit -- Angus Hutcheson, who now lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand -- and are sold in Denmark. (Hey, let's hear it for the global economy!)

The fixtures are, as you might expect, prohibitively expensive -- but whether that's because of the dollar's weakness or because they're just so cool, I'm not sure.

Top: Hanging World, 3,795 Danish Kroner (about $797); above: Elfin Tree, 3,995 DKK ($839)

Chrysalis Sky 8,495 DKK ($1,786). The shade is made with silkworm cocoons.

Midnight Moon, 5,495 DKK ($1,154)

Three Stone Floor, 8,995 DKK ($1,889)

My Chrysalis, 3,795 DKK ($797)

See all of Hutcheson's lighting at The Moood right here -- and check out more of his designs here.

(P.S. Update: It looks like at least a few of these fixtures -- plus Hutcheson's Heaven lights, above, with shades made from mulberry bark -- can be ordered through Fordbrady in Los Angeles. Still probably tres expensive, though.)

Love these - such a great natural element.

These lights are carried at our showroom. Keep in mind, all lights are hand crafted, some lights take over a week for one person to make and they are all sustainable.

Thanks for the review and getting the word out on Angus.

Very nice! The last one reminds me of a Chihuly a bit.
