You know those 3D star-sahepd metal lantern/lights that were being sold everywhere for a while in trendy home goods places? This chandelier is like the original, giant monster version of those. Meanwhile this is possibly my favorite photo from this one photoset.
From Wikipedia:

Hildreth Meiere,  a New York-based tile and mosaic designer, working with Alexander, was  responsible for much of the original interior design. She collaborated  closely with the Guastavino Company of New York to create the elaborate  tile vaulting, which is both structural and decorative. Buffaloes, corn, wheat, sunflowers,  and wild native animals motifs are repeated throughout the building’s  ornament. The theme of Meiere’s work is nature and the cultivation of  the prairie.

Gorgeous lamps.
From Wikipedia:

The architectural competition program was written by Omaha architect Thomas R. Kimball, then president of the American Institute of Architects.  The competition guidelines were innovative because they did not define  plan, style, or material for the building. The program did specify,  however, that they wanted an architect who would assemble a team  (including sculpture, painter, and landscapist) to create a unified  appearance.
