UFO? NO, just Meurice.

I'm thinking I should warn my friend/neighbor Bonnie about our new light fixture....  Bonnie's backyard is kitty-corner from mine, and in the summer, we don't even know the other is there.  But as the leaves fall off, the view breaks open just enough to see when they turn on their Christmas tree lights.  So maybe I should warn her about our new kitchen light fixture before this fall and she freaks out thinking some sort of strange UFO has landed in our kitchen.  Ha, just kidding - it's not that scary but it is a little different.  It's the Meurice from Jonathan Adler by Robert Abbey.  After being backordered for 5 months (!), it finally arrived and we had it installed last week.  The bamboo style fixture is finished in a deep bronze patina and holds thirty small candelabra bulbs.  It creates a dramatic focal point as you walk into the kitchen.  The small picture above is from the website, the larger picture shows it in-situ.  What do you think?
