There’s something just so right about the design of this minimal lighting fixture from Japan. While it sits there on your tabletop, it casts a dramatic shadow of numeric shapes across the surface of your desk and walls.
For high ceilings and modern décor use recessed lighting: “Can” light fixtures, so called because of the metal recessed “can” that is inserted into the ceiling and the light fixture fits inside.
Now you can wander around the house in the middle of the night with confidence, assisted by Two Lamps. This creation by design firm LifeGoods serves as a bedside lamp in its stationary mode, and then you can pluck off the rechargeable flashlight for your late-night jaunts.
Because each customer’s lighting needs are different, 2Modern has expanded its malleable lighting collection in order to provide “a lamp that can be tailored to spatial needs.” On-trend examples include Rich Brilliant Willing’s Palindrome Chandelier or Moooi’s Heracleum (shown above).
Subtle elegance fills the space that each piece of lighting is occupying. Ribbons made from metal gracefully shroud the supporting structure made from thin metal bars that each have a light bulb at the end. The thin undulating metal strips are actually the most important trademark of Jacco Maris Design.
For those of us who can’t see in the dark and have a tendency to stumble around in the gloom, we (along with our stubbed toes) would be grateful to see this nicely-designed luminaire actually finding its way to the marketplace.
Use exterior wall sconces for décor: Outdoor lighting doesn’t have to only be utilitarian. Wall sconces can provide washes of light against the exterior walls of your home to create ambiance in the evening hours.
Whether you are trying to light your cutting surface in your kitchen or you’re trying to beautify your foyer, pendant lights work beautifully. Also, consider using pendant lights in kid’s rooms for their desk area or to illuminate a play area.
