Chandelier made from old kitchen utensils by Madeleine Boulesteix
Madeleine Boulesteix
Madeleine is based in South London and South Devon
I’ve been making chandeliers using recycled materials for over 20 years. It started after finding 40 faceted glass drops in some rubbish. I wanted to make myself a chandelier that looked opulent but was made from humble objects. I found metal kitchen items for the structure at car boot sales and scrap yards. They seem nice jaunty objects with more potential so I liberate them from their domestic duties by incorporating them into my chandeliers. I love thrift and the challenge of re-using.

phone: 0117 961 6471
Sustainable Kitchens specialises in building high quality, bespoke kitchens with minimal impact on the environment.

We offer a tailored design, build, installation and project management service and we recycle clients' existing kitchens via Freecycle.
 
Our kitchens are made to last for decades, however we do consider end of life issues and build our kitchens in a way that allows them to be easily disassembled and component parts recycled.
