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.
There is no exact and universal rule when it comes to spacing recessed lights. Yet a simple way forward is to put 5-inch lights approximately 5 feet apart or 3-inch lights around 3 feet away from one another.
This makes an ideal canvas for the black lampshade which offers lovely visual and even textural contrast. Black lamps shades work well with pendant lights floor lamps table lamps and even chandeliers. Bringing in balance and diversity the black lampshade adds a dark tone without disturbing the existing style or theme in any manner.
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?!
A rather young creation the Blossom series was designed by Hella Jongerius for Belux in 2007. The surprising thing about these simple recipient-shaped lamps is that depending on which one of the 16 colors they come in they fit in almost any dining environment you can think of.
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.
