Budget Lighting: CB2 Whirly Candles

This post inspired me to write about the beauty of the $3.95 whirly hanging candles from CB2.

That write-up showed a table display sponsored by the Viking Range Corporation and designed by Barry Rice and Ted Allen, from the recent DIFFA's Dining By Design event held in New York. When I posted it, a decor8 reader by the name of Bob, commented about the lighting. He turned us on to the fact that the lighting shown over the table below are the CB2 whirly candles. Elegant and simple, but also a budget find. Triple threat lighting! It looks like around 22 mini globes (so approximately $88) were used in the below display, but you can get away with less, I'm sure. I'm thinking these would look stunning on the patio for Spring parties, or in front of a window displayed at different lengths. What a great idea for budget lighting, I love it.
