This piece was featured above the Ligne Roset lounge at the 2006 AD Home Design Show and functioned as the centerpiece of the opening and closing night events. We were fortunate to have been asked to "be creative" when we were commissioned by Troy Hanson of Merchandise Mart, LLC, who was thus the inspiration for its name. The Troy Chandelier continues to receive noteriety and has been published internationally in over 50 shelter magazines and design journals.
