The MagPie Chandelier

In a recent episode of "Man Shops Globe", Keith Johnson traveled to South Africa, where he was on the hunt for not-so-typical African crafts. After finding a magical art collective shop called Magpie, which sells knickknacks and décor made entirely from recycled objects. Johnson discovered a tall, dramatic chandelier made from found objects, trinkets, and castoffs, and ordered one for Anthropologie.

President Obama bought the $4,800 recycled chandelier from Antropologie for Sasha and Malia's bedroom in the White House. While the purchase is certainly expensive for young girls, Barack and Michelle did decide to pay for their White House renovations personally, and forgo the allotted $100,000 presidential decorating budget, so you can't blame them!
