When you buy a new home, you always want to add your own flair to it. Sometimes, just changing the paint color can change a room completely. There are other times when entire kitchen needs to be changed in order to make a statement in your new home. But, there are other times when all it takes is the changing of a light fixture to add your own person touch to the foyer, bedroom or dinning room to make that huge statement you are after.

1. Gummi Bear Chandelier

This chandelier is made up of gummi bears, along with beads, metal that gets threaded through the bears, some plastic parts and light bulbs. This chandelier has an array of colors, but the possiblility of it getting too hot and melting the bear is there, unless they were treated with some kind of special treatment so that they don’t melt into a pile of melted gummi substance.

If you like the sea and are a fan of the sea creature, but don’t want to display octopus art on your walls or knick knacks on your shelves, then showing your affection for this creature subtly by using a chandelier will make the statement you want without over doing it.
