A familiar flower blossoms anew in satin-finish crystal.

In Full Bloom

In 1928, the glass designer René Lalique created Femme Bras Levés and Joueur de Pipeau—patterns that graced decorative panels aboard the posh Orient Express. His Dahlia motif followed in 1931 and was the opulent adornment to perfume bottles and powder boxes gracing ladies’ dressing tables. Now that lush legacy has been translated for the present day, through Lalique’s (212.355.6550, recent collaboration with Munich’s Windfall lighting studio. The Serene collection, a line of chandeliers, lamps, and sconces by Windfall designers Clarissa Dorn and Roel Haagmans, captures these art deco designs in cascading prisms bearing the French crystal house’s imprimatur. Prices for a single prism begin at $4,500 and increase to $110,000 for a rectangular 26-prism chandelier. The six-prism Dahlia table lamp is priced at $29,000.
