Metallics in décor, especially gold, is a trend that is showing no signs of fading away any time soon. Whenever I dream of gold for interiors, (with the exception of this), I usually think of
Jaime Hayón's luxe and extremely beautiful Josephine Queen series of hanging lamps (above). Its height and wonderful combination of traditional and modern aesthetics make it all-out style icon.

The series was reconfigured from a porcelain lamp originally designed for metalarte and is available in black, white, platinum and gold, each in a combination that is a multiple of 3 (6, 9. 6/3, 9/6 or 9/6/3).

Jennifer, can't you just imagine it above a long dining table or in a beautiful entryway?

Wow that is really gorgeous indeed.

Do you know where it's available for purchase?

Grace--the Josephine Queen was based on a design originally produced for metalarte (www.metalarte.com). I'm not certain if they are distributing this series as well, or if they available yet. I'll need to do a little more research--thanks for asking!
