Furniture designer Misha Kahn’s work exists at the intersection of design and sculpture, exploring a wide variety of media and scales. Kahn’s approach melds an array of processes, from casting, carving, welding and weaving, to imaginative and singular modes of production. According to John Maeda, former president of the Rhode Island School of Design (where Kahn earned his BFA in furniture design in 2011), “Misha creates work for a parallel wonderland, where traditional perception of material and structure is pushed to the edges of the room to make space for one big party.”
This whimsical wall sconce, with its crown-like polished bronze fixture and extended lime green glass hand takes its name from the French word for ‘enchanted,’ which is commonly translated as ‘nice to meet you.” You might also hear “Enchanté” uttered by a character in a cheesy movie while kissing the back of a lady’s hand, which I am told is considered rude.
This piece is produced on-demand and can be purchased for $18,000 at this link.

Brand new at this spring’s Architectural Digest Design Show is a fabulous piece of lighting from the folks at Providence Art Glass that’s so new, it’s not even on the company’s website yet. The Morning Glory light fixture can be described as a six-foot vining wall sconce/sculpture comprised of twelve glass buds in an opalescent, pale blue hue, all hand-fabricated with brass and copper with a green patina. To create the buds, according to artist Rebecca Zhukov (who owns Providence Art Glass with partner Terence Dubreuil) each blue globe is blown into a copper floral frame, where the two materials meld together.
