Well placed recessed lighting highlights the best features of a room while the lights themselves remain invisible! This is the true for recessed lighting. Offering warm inviting and pleasing aura recessed lights give most interiors and patio spaces a whole new lease of life filled with radiance.
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. A creation of Marcel Wanders for Flos this extravagant pendant lamp draws its inspiration from a thick spider web covering a torchere style chandelier.
Or you can go with white! In fact this white floor lamp brightens up the space it inhabits especially since gray and wooden accents dominate the room. The lamp brings out the color of the walls reminding us that it’s OK to be crisp in a space filled with rich tones.
Sconces as bedside lighting also can double up as perfect spotlights for reading in the bed. Some can be placed just above the headboard and can be swung away when you do not really need them!
