You wouldn’t think mud could be glamorous would you? I usually associate mud with muddy boots, facials, wet dogs and Peppa Pig. Now, though, I am convinced mud could be the coolest thing in interiors.
I absolutely fell in love with this natural mud chandelier at the home show, Top Drawer, last month in London. It is sold by Dassie, a company selling eco-friendly, fair-trade decor, sourced in Southern Africa.
The chandelier is created from mud! Very relaxed boho-glam if you ask me.
I saw it for the first time at top South African restaurant, Zinzi, which is part of Tsvala Treetop Lodge located near Plettenberg Bay. We had a delicious meal at Zinzi but what really caught my fancy were the chandeliers! You can see bits of the chandelier from this video about Zinzi.
I heard that Michelle Obama has hung this chandelier in the family quarters of the White House. She has seriously good taste in everything.
Although Dassie sell some items through their online shop in the United Kingdom, this chandelier seems to be wholesale only. If you are interested in the mud chandelier, you’ll need to contact Dassie to find out who is your nearest retailer.
