Zippo Gasolier is worth all the love for looking this grand. Designed by Luka Pirnat, the gasolier matches up the classic Zippo lighters to the candelabra. A set of seven Zippo lighters sit on the menorah, hailing a remembrance to both, the gasolier and the zippo lighters. Come to think of it, Zippos are especially suited for a design like this; they won’t be easily blown off, and they look pretty darn good in the setting.
Float Chandelier by New York based design studio Bower, makes use of magnets to keep lights tied up into place.

The design and looks are pretty interesting, but we imagine a lot more could be done with the setup; perhaps a few more additions to give the floating lights more flair.
