Schonbek lighting shines in 'The Great Gatsby'




The chandeliers were only on loan to the movie production company and have since been returned to Swarovski Lighting. 

Gunther said it is too soon to know what will happen to the pieces.

All Schonbek chandeliers are hand-made in the United States, Gunther said. The Roman Empire model can be seen on the company website and is available from its retail stores, she said, so anyone can have their own piece of Hollywood history.

Schonbek products have also been featured in movies such as “Black Swan,” “Mirror, Mirror” and James Bond film “Die Another Day.”

In addition, a sparkling Swarovski crystal curtain has been used as the backdrop of the Academy Awards telecasts for the past nine years, Gunther said.

“Our mission is to add sparkle to people’s everyday lives,” she said. “We were happy to add sparkle for the moviegoers.”
