for when your ballroom needs that air of "Sharper Image" class

An Art Deco falling spiral chandelier had crowds of party-goers mesmerised as they sent text messages to the light and watched their SMSs trickle through the crystal strands like a luxurious ticker tape.

"It's time to shake up the industry. There are too many chandeliers around with no life and soul -- just expensive cookie-cutter designs," said Nadja Swarovski, grand-daughter of the company's founder and vice president of communications.

"OMG LOL U SUX0R", said the chandelier.

    It would be cooler if the messages scrolled down the individual strands instead of around it. More Matrix screensaver, less marriage proposal at baseball game.

      ... "marriage proposal at baseball stadium" will probably prove a more valuable meme than "matrix screensaver". It's still a sentimental reason to prefer one over the other, but hey--it's my sentimental reason. Or something.

      Yeah.
