And lastly check out the stunning look these blown glass pendants create in the middle of this huge staircase. What a way to create an eye-catching sense of elegance as you climb up to each story!
Many of today’s popular “brass” pieces are crafted from another metal but finished with a brassy hue. This Metal Accordion Side Table from Urban Outfitters is one such find. The accordion-style table is available in both brass and antique bronze finishes. The best part: it can easily fold away and the top is removable for even easier storage!
For another look at a lighting option that celebrates spherical forms check out the Vega Flush Mount Lamp from CB2 the creation of designer Donna Piacenza of Studio 1am. Retro globe light bulbs are given a modern context thanks to the brass-finished canopy:
Serving as both an outdoor lamp and a place to sit Duncan Meerding’s unique cracked log stool is a visually stimulating conversation starter as well. The artist makes each one out of salvaged timber and LEDs. Another double-duty option the NI by Slik Outdoor Living is a stunning LED parasol that also serves as a functional accent lamp.
While it has a bit of a mod 60s vibe IKEA’s VÄSTER pendant lamp comes with a built-in LED bulb that reflects the sustainable focus of today’s world. Hang one over your dining room table or pair them up to flank a bed for a soothing symmetrical look.
The bubble chandelier is fun but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. An alternative to this style could be these “staccato” branch-like fixtures that have blown glass pieces extending outward from all different directions. ProvidenceArtGlass sells them on Etsy and The Cool Hunter shows a beautiful Trocadero apartment featuring one in the dining room.
