It is important to balance the theatrical with the unassuming and the minimal. This is precisely what makes recessed lighting a must home in contemporary homes with clean and well defined interiors.
Recessed lights are a far more basic part of interior design than the sculptural floor lamps or stylish pendant lights. They might not be the of a setting but they are an absolute must in order to fashion gorgeous and well-lit spaces.
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.
As we discussed above most modern interiors are clad in colors that seem to range from the white and grey to brown and pale blue. Whether it is the minimalist style or the contemporary theme neutral backdrops have become pretty much mandatory.
With Terho taking the shape of delightful acorns the Tatti table lamps seem to be inspired by the outline of a mushroom. The opal white glass-blown casings of the lamps give them their chic and trendy appearance while the Finnish alder ‘hats’ on top bring in a ‘natural’ appeal.
Three pivoting adjustable heads make a statement as part of the Cole Multi-Arm Task Floor Lamp from Pottery Barn. There’s just something industrial about this piece and it truly makes its mark on the traditional pale gray space below. In fact if you’re decorating a room in neutral shades why not punctuate it with something this interesting?
