Inside An $85M Estate With A Two-Story Swarovski Chandelier. Today Architectural Digest brings you to Holmby Hills in Los Angeles to tour an epic 60-room estate currently on the market for $85 million. The Azria estate is trailblazing California architect Paul R. William’s largest creation, encompassing 3 acres across its 17 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms. With a signature Williams staircase in the foyer made all the more stunning by a two-story Swarovski chandelier, arriving guests are immediately hit with a sense of scale and grandeur difficult to top.
The Swarovski Chandelier was created in the 1800s by a man who went by the name of Daniel Swarowski. Originally, he planned to use his invention for a chandelier that would be used in churches and opera houses. This is one of the most iconic designs from this time period. A hundred years later, Swarovski was bought out by an American company called Signet Jewelers at which point they started making modern versions of these chandeliers as well as other types of light fixtures. The company then changed their name to Signet International Holdings Limited when they merged with another company called Zale Corporation back in 1988. Today, you can find these beautiful creations all over the world and in many different places such
