There is an increasing number of products designed by Artika in my local Costco. Most of those are lamps and ceiling fixtures, such as the really cool LED Moonraker, but there are other products, such as the Aqua Bay sink. Their latest product to catch my eye is the beautiful Artika Ampere Crystal Ellipse, or “The” Crystal Ellipse, as the packaging would have it. The light fixture I have in my dinning room is pretty ordinary, and I am seriously considering a change. A full-size, chandelier-type indoor light for the very attractive price of $174.99, including all the light bulbs, is quite the good deal, especially for something this classy.
This very nice laser-cut light fixture measures 31.5 inches long, so almost 3 feet, by 11.8 inches at its widest point, by 8.7 inches high. It features hanging crystals on the inside, as well as no less than nine 40W G9 bulbs, which are included in the package. A quick search on Amazon tells me that each of these bulbs cost about $5 each, if you’re buying LED bulbs, which you should. That’s a savings of $45, right there.
Also included is all the hardware required to install the Crystal Ellipse. Most people would probably get an electrician to install it, but any enterprising man – or woman – could most certainly do it, as my experience with the Moonraker attests to.
While the Ampere Crystal Ellipse will probably be installed mainly in dining rooms – it has that look, it could easily be installed in any other room in the house, such as the bedroom, the living room or even the entrance. Of course, this type of modern design requires a certain type of furniture and decor to go with it, or else it could look out of place.
Another nice feature about the Artika Crystal Ellipse is the fact that the length of the hanging wires is easily adjustable, so it won’t hang right in front of your eyes at the diner table, or anywhere else for that matter. The maximum cable length is 1 meter, or 39.4 inches, which is more than enough even for houses with very high ceilings.
I’ve not yet purchased the Artika Ampere Crystal Ellipse, but I find it so attractive I just had to share. I will be purchasing it soon and installing it in our entrance, so I’ll be sure to update this article when I do. Thanks for reading, and feel free to share your experiences with the Crystal Ellipse in the comments section below!
