  • Light Up Your Room - Part 2

    Inspiration can come from many sources but nature has long been a go to for Interior Designers. We see freeform lines in furniture, accessories and lighting that may have been sparked by an organic element! Organic shapes have the ability to draw you in since they are so unique.

    Lamps can provide the ambient lighting that we all love, but as designers, we think lamps can do so much more! They can add texture, pattern, whimsy, sparkle or an organic element into the space! They can be like a sculptural piece of art, because when you think about it, most of the day they go unlit, so why not incorporate them into the design!We will explore some fabulous lamps in the upcoming weeks!
