Pending Permitting.
Sorry folks.
Breaks my heart but thats where we're at.
After 11 glorious years we may actually go dark forever.
My hope is that we can jump through some hoops with the city municipals & continue.
Restructure the experience to be in compliance with the city & my fantastic neighbors.
Honestly, the city counsel reps. have been very responsive; positive about our prospects.
I apologize in advance if you show up & she's off.
Humbly, there's absolutely nothing I can do.
Huge love to Silverlake.
She's a gem.

Out of respect for those families who drive extended distances in traffic to see her.
I would love to save them the hardship.

Although it’s been lighting up Silver Lake for over 10 years, Adam Tenenbaum’s Chandelier Tree is still unknown to many.


The Chandelier Tree will have limited hours during August!!!

Dear friends.
I'm currently up in Oregon helping build a festival.
Apologies, but the chandelier tree will be off for the majority of August.
My roommate is in town & she will do her best with a very busy schedule to keep the tree lit but I just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
Have a wonderful month and we look forward to lighting up Silverlake for you for years to come!!!
Huge love.

Anybody got access to one of these???
Pretty please.

Hey folks.
So I rarely ask for help or favors. But.
I'm kind of in need of a boom lift.
For one day / half a day.
I looked into rentals & they are around $500 bucks.
That's kind of our 6 month budget. hehe. I know I know.
Basically, due to a shoulder surgery, I'm unable to climb The Chandelier Tree safely.
(My doctors would be pi**ed)
& I have some chandeliers that need to be swapped out & anchor points that need to be replaced!!!
Anyway, I know it's a big favor.
Surprise me Facebook.

How cool are these!!!!!
Delightful shots of The Chandelier Tree. House.
Complements of one meticulous photographer who shoots for Image Locations.
She seriously spent hours playing around with composition, lightings, and tonality.
I really like how she envisioned our home.
Huge love dear.

Hey folks.
So last week we had a beautiful thing occur.
We had the pleasure of hosting a wedding proposal.

It was actually a wedding proposal disguised as an Anniversary Party.
Which was quite cleaver.
He made a heartfelt speech in front of both families.
Took a knee. &.

Just added a 3rd high capacity dimmer!!!

Overpowered is the best.
We now have the capacity to add more Chandeliers!!!
If we like.
Too go full on bright / 100%!!!!
If we like.
I've been wanting this to happen for about a year!!!

Believe She's in Real Estate?!?!?!

This was fun to see!!!
Not sure on the backstory. Though.
Stephanie certainly does not live at The Chandelier
My roomy Gina brought this sucker home.
She mentioned that Stephanie might be in real estate.
Might sells houses or such.
Would love to know more?
Anyone up for giving her a call?

The Chandelier Tree is on KCET!!!
This Wednesday.

No s**t.
Just found out.
We will be featured on the show 'SoCal Connect'.
Here's the write-up:

"SoCal Connected" explores the struggle to shut down massage parlors accused of being fronts for prostitution / tours the country's largest bottle recycling plant in Riverside / looks into what consumers can do to ensure the seafood they're buying isn't mislabeled / and visits Adam Tenenbaum's "Chandelier Tree."

Why not, right.....Seafood & prostitution!!!!

Will You Marry Me?!?!

A young Silverlake couple got engaged under the tree!!!
The guy was adorable / romantic / thoughtful.
He came to the door & asked our permission.
He hid the ring & a note in the tree base.
Concocted an elaborate treasure hunt....of love.
....ending under the chandeliers.
& she said YES!!!
Thank god, right.
Interestingly enough, this is the 6th couple!!!!!!!!
(all successful mind you)
As an artist, I strive for meaning / some personal impact on the world.
Hardly a doctor or scientist over here. ya know.
Often, my communal contributions are fickle pretty.
At best.
So as you can imagine.
Just ecstatic to provide this unintended service.
Creating something that total strangers resonate strongly enough with to involve in such an intimate moment.
Is beautiful / touching / i might cry.
...or I might just get inspired myself.
or maybe not...(sorry mom!!!)

Hi! Wanted to see if your beautiful and inspiring tree will be on either Sunday or Monday night? I'd like to see it for my Birthday :)
Birthday Tunes 🎶
Curious before we make the drive of the lights will be on? If not next time! Can’t wait to see it outside of pictures and videos lol
We came from Oregon to see it but it wasn't on. :-(
Any chance the lights are going to be on tonight? Sitting outside waiting just in case! Last night in LA!
The photos look cool. I will visit it next time I am in town. ( you spelled installation wrong in your description, or perhaps that was intended )
We love Chandelier Tree!! Bósa...=)
Any chance it’ll be on tonight?
Thank you and the whole neiborhood for a great Halloween!
Rode 20 miles on a,bike and tree was off..bummer
