Splurge or Save: 18-Light Globe Chandelier (RH Lookalike)

Are you still in love with the old Restoration Hardware Foucault’s Orb Chandelier, or is it just me? I remember seeing it for the first time in one of their stores and it took my breath away. I couldn’t stop staring at it. They don’t carry it anymore (they have a more streamlined, modern version now), but you can get similar chandeliers from other places.

I’ve started researching orb chandeliers similar to the RH one, because we’re thinking of having a chandelier added to our stairwell, which has a really tall ceiling and two large windows that would bounce a lot of light off a beautiful fixture. But, since there’s no existing wiring there, we’ll need a good electrician to add it in. If we’re going to go through the trouble of renting the super tall ladder and getting a professional to come add the wiring, I want to make sure the result is worth all that cost and effort and that’s what made my mind go back to one of my favorite chandeliers of all time.

18-Light Globe Chandeliers:

After a lot of digging, I found a version so similar to the original RH orb chandelier, some people in the reviews say they’ve bought both and love this one even more. Even at $1500, it’s a fraction of the price of the previously $4k RH chandelier, but then I stumbled on a lookalike that looks…identical. Some of the stock photography is exactly the same, too. So, it’s possible they’re made by the same manufacturer and just priced differently, or they could have small differences that just aren’t noticeable on the screen. Either way, they’re both gorgeous and would make a big statement in any room, foyer, or stairwell.

Another way to save on your orb chandelier – and all your online purchases –  is by using Rakuten. I love it and I got over $500 cash back just last year using Rakuten for all of our online purchases. If you’re decorating a home, renovating, or just shopping online, you can (and should) get cash back on those purchases. Check out Rakuten here if you aren’t already using it. New signups are getting $30 cash back on their first purchase of $30 of more – which this light would certainly qualify for.
