This $70,000 Chandelier Is an Exact Replica of the St. Peter’s Basilica

One thing Italy is renowned for — besides its pasta and fast cars — is its churches.

Far from your local community chapel, they’re architectural wonders, boasting gorgeous grey cupola domes full of intricate stonework and detailing. Studio AMeBe, an Italian design firm, has translated the majesty of the dome in St. Peter’s Basilica into an arresting chandelier.


Limited to just 15 pieces, “Cupola, and light it was!” is made from polyurethane resin, painted by hand, and features LED lights you can control with your phone. For the Renaissance man.
