I have a tendency to be pretty modern in terms of my design choices around the house, so traditional chandeliers aren’t really my cup of tea. However, I might make an exception if I could have a chandelier that looked like an octopus.

These incredibly complicated chandeliers by artist Adam Wallacavage replace their candle-holding arms with lots of twisty tentacles. Each of these cephalopod chandeliers is made from various bits and bobs including lamp parts, epoxy clay and spray paint, among other things.

While his designs may be based on some of the more unusual and creepy looking creatures on the planet, Adam manages to infuse a bit of whimsy and elegance into his designs, primarily through his choices of colors and finishing touches.

Ironically, Adam is allergic to shellfish, as well as octopus.
