Red can also be a great way to tie everything together in a room that features a LOT of the color. Like the wallpapered space below from from Liz Levin Interiors. What better way to illuminate the room than with a red-based lamp that boasts a white shade?!
These pendant lamps designed by Achille Castiglioni for Flos in 1996 are discreet elegant and glistening like upside-down champagne glasses. The lower rims are sand blasted so the eye-catching effect of sparkle and transparency is achieved without glare.
This creation by Villa Tosca Design for Slamp is another example of light and airy presence over the dining table. The stylized shade in red green or white inspired by vegetation forms surrounds the light source like a nest of delicate paper cut filtering the light indirectly for ambient effects. It is a neat original and convenient designer lamp which adds refinement and extravagance in a light and purist to slightly retro layout.
Our next featured floor lamp boasts a bit of 1940s style as well as a trio of spotlights. Crafted of steel with a hi-gloss carbon powder coat finish the lamp’s gleam will capture your attention if its striking lighting arrangement doesn’t catch your eye first! It’s the Signal Floor Lamp from CB2:
Not only are these sconces chic and fashionable but also are ultra-flexible and can swing around when needed. They are also far less understated in appearance than most pendant light designs and are more suited for those who prefer a hint of minimalism.
Apart from freeing up precious space they can also allow you to use your bedside table in more ways than one. With the table lamp gone you can decorate the table with vase arrangements a collection of framed photographs or even use that space to stack up your favorite titles that carry to bed each night. For the workaholics among us it leaves some space for the laptop or even the smartphone along with the latest iPad!
