Dessert Decor: Gummi Bear Chandelier, Cupcake Seat, Ice Cream BenchCathy Hale
I’ve seen a lot of clever novelty items over the years, but these take the cake. No pun intended! Now you can do more than drool over your favorite desserts, you can decorate your house with them in the form of functional seating and lighting.
Do you opt for the popular and colorful cupcake with delish foam frosting or the traditional treat, the beloved ice cream sandwich? Or maybe the chandelier of 5,000 hand-strung gummi bears. Decisions, decisions.
All of these items are brought to you by a company called Jellio. You’ve got to see their other products too. “Jellio is about combining childhood fun with interior design.” I love the idea of incorporating your favorite childhood memories (or adukt goodies) into your house in the form of FUN. I wish they had a Twinkie bench or a HoHo side table. Then they’d be talking my language.
Meet Cupcake Seat. Coming in at 19″ high, 16″ diameter base and 24″ diameter top, this funky seat can be used as an ottoman or a stool or a conversation piece. What makes this contender cool? Color options! The cupcake body comes in red, orange, yellow, brown, metallic silver, baby blue, violet, pink, or lime green finish. Seat comes in chocolate, strawberry, blueberry and lemon. Retails for $900 at Jellio.
Introducing Ice Cream Bench. This solid foam treat features cushions covered in canvas, vanilla ice cream center is covered in velvet and wooden legs. Unlike real ice ream sandwiches, it won’t melt in hot weather and doesn’t drip on the wood floors either. It’s roomy enough for a few happy folks or it could work as an ottoman too. Retails for $900 at Jellio.
And last, but not least, say hello to the Candelier. This is a working light fixture made of 5,000 acrylic gummi bears. It takes about 2 months for them to make one. Only ten will ever be made, and each one will be a little different. Each Candelier is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Pricing upon request.
And now the toughest question of all, which one do you like the best?
