NEW YORK-Crystorama is helping Henri Bendel celebrate the holidays by providing 16 chandeliers for Bendel's holiday display, "Hirschfeld Spectacular," which honors the late caricaturist Al Hirschfeld, known for his black and white portraits of celebrities and Broadway stars. In conjunction with the installation, Crystorama and retailer Capitol Lighting/1800Lighting.com are hosting a holiday sweepstakes for a Crystorama chandelier featuring Swarovski Elements.
The main window of the Henri Bendel flagship store here shows a formal dining room of a classic New York townhouse in the midst of a holiday party, attended by celebrated party guests--all Al Hirschfeld's line drawings translated into three-dimensions: Carol Channing, Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Jessica Parker, Liza Minnelli, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Bernadette Peters and Woody Allen. At the center of the window hangs a large gold-plated Crystorama chandelier sparkling with Swarovski Elements.
"We are often inspired by fashion in designing our lighting collections, so it makes perfect sense to pair beautiful lighting with an upscale women's specialty store like Henri Bendel," said Brad Kleinberg, president of Crystorama. "We couldn't be more flattered to be asked to be part of this iconic installation, and we're excited that our fans will get a chance to bring a piece of the Hirschfeld Spectacular into their own home through our sweepstakes with Capitol Lighting."
Crystorama's contest with New Jersey-based retailer Capitol Lighting/1800Lighting.com will give one winner a Crystorama chandelier from the Maria Theresa Collection featuring Swarovski Elements. To enter, fans must "like" both the Crystorama and Capitol Lighting Facebook pages and "share" the announcement photo from Capitol Lighting on their own page and tag both companies; the winner will be announced on Dec. 20.
