One of a Kind: Chandelier by Laura Miracle

Woodworking instructor and department manager Laura Miracle has donated this tremendous chandelier for sale through Chicago Industrial Arts & Design Center. 100% of the proceeds from the sale will be put in the Operating Budget for new tools and Department upgrades.

Crafted from reclaimed vintage wood doors and wired with Edison-style LED filament bulbs in porcelain sockets, this is a fantastic example of the kinds of innovated work our interdisciplinary shops can produce. The door was locally sourced from ReBuilding Exchange, and the 6-watt bulbs produce the equivalent of a 40-watt incandescent bulbs.

The chandelier – valued at $1,000 – will be on sale at CIADC for $500. If you are interested in acquiring this unique creation, contact us via – by phone at (773) 961-8498 – or visit CIADC in person anytime the center is open!
