I think the Steam Punk movement (is it a movement?) has really brought the octopus some new respect and attention. Those lovely tentacles are everywhere. I especially like how they have been used in chandeliers by two metal artists: Adam Wallacavage and Daniel Hopper. Wallacavage's chandeliers are dayglow bright and look like they might actually come down and strangle you.
Hopper's octopus chandelier is delicate and elegant. This octopus might ask you for a dance.
Hopper also has a flytrap bbq that I have to sneak into this post. It's very Tim Burton.
But I digress, back to the lovable octopus. If your budget is more like mine. Perhaps we can quench our octopus desire with this lantern from Noble Bear Furniture.
