Think BIG : Think Fire Farm : Think BELLE

La vie est belle with our industrial chic Fire Farm Belle!  Best of Show winner of IIDA/HD's Product Design Competition at HDExpo in 2016.  This huge 6 foot diameter version of our Belle pendant features hand-finishing on the blackened steel exterior and a hand-applied gold leaf interior, with beautiful retro LED vintage clear lightbulbs inside. 

Our matching Otto seating below also features the same hand-finished blackened steel under the cushy faux leather upholstery.  And look closely in the center to see the included USB charging port cluster for you and your friends to re-energize your phone batteries while toasting actual live social interaction.

Here’s a little secret: the curve of our Belle captures your voices and sends them down to the floor when you’re standing or sitting underneath, creating a natural semi-private conversation area! 

For all the available finish combinations check out the Fire Farm Industrial Chic collection on our website

And if you're wondering how we put together such a beautiful piece, watch our video "The Making of Belle" here!
