You might think that the wallpaper is star of this retro-modern space… However we think the featured Excel Floor Lamp by Roll & Hill (available at YLighting) really steals the spotlight!
Finally we see a red zigzag lamp in a room featuring a range of hues from gray and teal blue to yellow and mint green. But it’s the red that truly stands out and the unique shape of this lighting piece is the true star of the room don’t you think?!…
Lighting is often the best when it is least noticed. Unless you are adding an extravagant floor lamp or a dazzling chandelier to the interiors lighting is all about shining the spotlight on something else.
In a similar fashion the Steel Arc Floor Lamp has a stainless steel finish as well as a stainless steel mesh shade in a warm earthy shade. There’s an abundance of glowing neutral tones in this space. It simply needed a large curved piece to take the lead…
The emphasis in contemporary design is so heavily placed on neutral tones and muted shades that we often forget to look at the bold contrasts. For gorgeous modern interiors to appear as appealing as they do one needs a touch of color and a dash of ‘drama’ here and there. Black is a pretty good choice in this regard. With white and grey being popular backdrops in current homes black makes for a perfect accent color.
The texture of the shade is opaque and softly corrugated thought to reflect other light sources in the room while its own golden light is concentrated upon the table surface in an intense“light isle”. Gorgeous original and elegant nothing less expected of prestigious Catellani and Smith.
The popular and beloved pendant lamp is designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Italian design label Kartell. The shade is a transparent and colorful cut sphere reminding of soap bubbles.
Designed by the Castiglioni brothers in 1962 the is a modern décor icon that has stood the test of time. Pendant lights and chandeliers often come with some innate amount of inflexibility after their installation.
Available in both the traditional shape and in improvised modern silhouettes the black lampshade seamlessly combines with the existing darker tones in the room. Since most of us already use other deep tones as part of our interiors black lampshades seem like an extension and enhancement of the existing style. While some of the less glossy ones are ideal for masculine settings the sparkling and polished versions can be used for the chic rooms which need a feminine touch.

The Blossom lamps work wonderfully suspended in a cluster over the table or disposed in a series and moreover you can take the theme into the kitchen too since their concentrated light bundle is very practical for lighting the work surfaces.

A very original and beautiful lamp it has the surprising advantage of sound-softening quality and of covering –and hovering- over a large part of your dining room.
