Lighting Stole the Show!

Lighting truly is everything, and this year at the Architectural Digest Show, lighting stole the show! This year we were most inspired by the variety of lighting we saw. With so much to be inspired by it is hard not to want to mention everything we noticed, but we decided to spare you a novel and highlight just a few of our favorite finds! We hope everyone enjoyed the show this year as much as we did. If you were unable to attend we hope our glimpse into lighting will inspire you!

There is something about this Amber series pendant from Hayoung Lee that pulls you in. It is whimsical and organic.Soft yet structured. Located in Brooklyn, she says her work is "alive", and records her traces and memories. She collects materials from her surroundings and is inspired to create. Hayoung's work took our breath away this year!

Hand cut from a single piece of vegetable tanned leather, and inspired by the acanthus plant, the Forest Lamp by Wren and Cooper was a show stopper. The Forest Lamp is a step in their mission to make contemporary furniture as perfectly as possible with honest materials. 

They had us hooked with ceramic and then they added brass to the equation. The organic inspired lighting and ceramics from John Sheppard Studio are bound to make an impact to any space.Unfinished brass mixed with stoneware is one of our favorite new couples in 2019!

Talbot & Yoon is a multi-disciplinary design firm creating playful architecture, furniture, and home accessories. The Bob Lamp is hand cast concrete with recycled glass aggregates. Its form allows you to use this piece of  as a small lamp table or pendant. The mirrored gold accenting the top sealed the deal for us. We had to include these beauties in our top finds this year!

Deconstructive techniques? Count us in! Especially if the end result looks like organic melting glass. Off Centre creates playful, innovative lighting and functional glassware. Each item is hand made and one of a kind!
