FrontRunners: Branching Out

    Interior designer Nicole Fuller expanded her services earlier this year when she established Isabella Wolfe (www.isabellawolfe.com), a furniture company whose initial offerings include attention-grabbing yet elegant pieces that range in price from about $4,000 for the lacquered Delight side table to $175,000 for the Family Tree chandelier—the highlight of the brand’s inaugural collection. Silver-leaf branches as long as 9 feet extend in either direction from the chandelier’s base, which resembles a tree trunk. The branches hold roughly 85 light bulbs, which are hidden behind crystals that reflect light in every direction. The made-to-order piece is also available in gold-leaf and rose-gold-leaf finishes, and, as with most of Fuller’s designs, it can be custom-sized.
