If you've inexplicably amassed some 8,000 clear window pieces in your Lego collection, thanks to the design talents of Tobias Tøstesen you can turn them into a stunning see-through, floor-to-ceiling chandelier. What's particularly great about this approach to decorating is that it's far cheaper than a similarly sized chandelier made of crystal, but no less stunning.

And if it were to come crashing to the ground, you don't need to call in a specialized craftsman for repairs. You can just keep a group of kids busy for an entire afternoon while they rebuild it. It's win-win all around. [Tobias Tøstesen via designboom]
