Light of her life: Woman, 35, who dated the Statue of Liberty is settling down with Lumière, a chandelier the objectophile says is ‘too big to take to bed’
- Amanda Liberty ditched US statue over difficulties of long-distance relationship
- Londoner had a brief fling with candelabra named after Beauty and the Beast
- Moved onto a 28-inch chandelier also called Lumière and is now engaged
- Her dreams are invaded by fantasies of ‘sassy’ light fittings as her lovers
A woman who had an intimate relationship with the Statue of Liberty is now engaged to a chandelier.
Amanda Liberty, 35, from London, is what is known as an ‘objectophile’ and has fallen in love with a 100-year-old light fitting that she admits is ‘too big to take to bed’.
She started dating 28-inch Lumière in 2017 following several profound trysts with inanimate objects.
‘I didn’t just decide, “Oh, I’m going to fall in love with a chandelier today”,’ she explained on Facebook. ‘No. It just happened. It was totally led by my heart.’

The 35-year-old had this chandelier tattooed on her arm to commemorate her sexual attraction to light fittings
Her journey began with a drum kit when she was 14 and by her late 20s she’d changed her name to match America’s most famous statue.
Pledging herself to the structure, she had a USA flag tattooed on her right arm to commemorate her relationship with ‘Libby’.
But the union collapsed in 2016 when the avid Disney fan felt they’d be better as friends due to the difficulties of their long-distance arrangement.
Ms Liberty’s latest romance started with the live action version of Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson in 2017.
Amanda Liberty has filled her home with light fittings and lamps and regularly has sexually charged dreams about them
She decided to buy a candelabra, naming it after the all-singing character played most recently by Ewan McGregor.
After a brief fling with the candelabra, she found herself fascinated with a chandelier she’d also named Lumière.
Ms Liberty has an array of chandeliers throughout her name – many of which she has restored and rewired herself.
As well as founding a Facebook group for thousands of like-minded people called Chandeliers, Lamps, and Lanterns, she often has sexually charged dreams about lights.

‘I don’t even completely understand it myself, but I still accept it as part of who I am,’ she wrote on Facebook. ‘My chandeliers make me so happy and full of joy and completely fulfilled.’
Fantasies that have crept into her sleeping mind include one in which the Queen introduced her to a squad of ‘chandelier cleaner’.
‘They let me operate the chandelier lift in the music room (something I would really love to do!) to bring one of the chandeliers down for closer inspection,’ she wrote.
‘I walked around her. And I told the Queen how beautiful her chandelier was…Then, before I could do more, I woke up. Dang it.’
She hopes to marry Lumière – which she says is a female – in the near future and regularly posts updates about their lives together on social media.
