Design for $100, Featured

By Heather J. Paper

Like any design-oholic worth their salt, I’m constantly looking for new products that make me sit up and take notice. An innovative wall covering? Fabulous! A new twist on on traditional design? Great! But my most recent discovery knocks it out of the park.

I was innocently looking for a new light fixture, one with more color than your typical brass-and-glass model. (Did I mention I’m a color-oholic, too?) Then I found this. It simply looks scrumptious. And, for good reason, it turns out. Jellio has “sweet spot” for gummi bears and has thus introduced the Candelier—made of 5,000 hand-strung acrylic replicas of the little guys. But if you have your heart set on one, speak now or forever hold your piece; only ten of these stunners will be made. (Understandably, as each masterpiece takes about two months to craft.)

As if this weren’t enough to chew on, Jellio’s site is chockfull of other imaginative finds such as the Rubik’s Cube Table, the Ice Cream Bench and the View Mirror (as in ViewMaster). Each and every one is guaranteed to make you smile.
