Best of New York 2015

Best Chandelier Installer

  • Einstein Electrical


    Ivan Butkovic and his electricians can secure the grandest of chandeliers, even if it weighs 300 pounds. Recent triumphs have included a custom bronze fixture that required three independent supports and a 150-pound Bocci rectangle secured with steel screws. Jobs are executed by deft duos, who adjust height to the decorator’s specifications, install dimmers, and source bulbs to suit rare European ­fixtures—all while taking special care to protect furniture from falling plaster. Services start at $500 for a 50-pound installation.
