With contemporary homes sporting clean and well defined lines its elliptic arch presents a lovely geometric variation. Unlike the bland floor lamps that seem to vanish into the backdrop Arco stands tall (quite literally too!) and yet never seems to block your view.
Many of us might also want to create a simple and smart guest room or additional bedroom without all the frills of an elaborate side table and a pair of exquisite table lamps. This is where the sconces and pendant lights swing in as a glittering hope to those looking for equally stylish alternatives.
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.
What I like a lot about these lamps in addition to their versatility is the fact that the feeding cable has a significant visual role in the ensemble.
Cloud is one of the most popular Belux products. Designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry this beautiful light and airy lamp comes in various sizes. It is also available in smaller globe shapes but the vast canopy named Mamacloud is the most impressive.
If you would rather go with subtle consider these cute pendant lamps designed by Diego Rossi and Raffaele Tedesco for Luceplan. They work very well over the dining table hung in clusters at different heights over a round table or disposed in a row over the breakfast bar.
