The crystals make the fixture look like it was left out in the snow and is as if the grand pine trees living outside the windows had begun to grow indoors. The fixture was designed to visually bring the outside into the interior and can be seen for miles away on the snowy mountaintop.
Folks in Seattle from Coates Design Architects have a sweet tooth for concrete (so do we but I guess you got the idea already). The home they built the Dorsey Residence was designed as a structure that maximizes footprint by the use of vertical space.

Exposed concrete is combined with warm wooden surfaces to create an inviting setting. Once inside large pendant light installations exquisite decor and a cool color palette take over. One can’t help but notice an unmistakable Asian style indoors as stylish wooden accents offer the necessary textural contrast.
