This is fun! Foscarini has teamed up with fashion brand Diesel to create some awesome lighting. These lights carry on the personality of Diesel quite well if you ask me! The heavy metal lamp has all of the vintage, rough, and industrial personality of Diesel. These lamps look like they just came out of the machine shop but preserves the elegant style of a 1920’s Parisian office.

This wall lamp is ultra cool. A vintage piece of art, functional and well structured, the Diana lamp is ideal to enjoy in the living room or bedroom due to its versatility.
I’m currently loving Supergrau lighting! The creative trio forming Supergrau include Denis Cegielski, Tobias Welzel, and Bjoern Berger. Their motto “To love, to buy, to preserve,” guides them throughout the development of their lighting line. The trio works to emphasize the simplistic blend of raw materials, using recoverable stainless steel, marble, and wood. Their new pieces include the Furore Suspension, the Furore Table Lamp and the Hanger Wall Lamp, all of which I would have in my own home! Lovely.
This chandelier gives off a very elegant yet modern look in this dining space.
I’m loving this copper artichoke light. The ceiling and light are a fun combo.
This light is perfectly organic and stylish.

There have been some fantastics DIY’s floating around the web lately.

A trend that we are seeing more and more in interior design is brass. Obviously brass and gold have been around for forever and designers have been using it for forever. But recently we’ve seen it being used in all styles of design. I’m particularly fond of it when used in lighting, hardware and other unexpected places. Above we see just a splash of brass in the sconce lighting. It’s just enough to give 0ff a super cool vibe
Below are a few of my favorite brass items right now.
1. Armstrong Armchair 2. Desk Lamp 3. Pendant Lamp 4. Candlesticks

Allow me to give a quick shout out to one of my favorite lighting designers that designed these masterpieces in 1930….whaaaaaa??? Robert Dudley Best studied industrial and interior design in Düsseldorf and Paris. During his studies, he designed this lamp collection. Best wanted the collection to symbolise the spirit of the times and setting creating a future movement for lamp design. Today, ten of his lamps are still in production. Timeless and gorgeous describe these lights. It comes to show you that nothing is new under the sun and that a man from the 1930’s is part of a design movement is the 2000’s. Way to be Robert Dudley Best!

I have a slight obsession with lighting. It’s one of those elements that if overlooked, can destroy the feel of a space. My nightmare is that can lights are the only lights legal to use. NOOOOOOO!
When first seeing OneFortyThree’s lighting on Instagram, I was floored. Each piece is modern, unique and transitional. I recently used the desk lamp (above) for a design project. It fits the space perfectly. Logan Hendrickson, designer behind OneFortyThree, started making lighting and furniture because him and his new wife were in need if pieces for their new home. From there, his brand has evolved. I’m pretty sure that we will be hearing lots from Logan.
As you can see you will find not only lighting but some insanely cool chairs and accessories. I think that I will take one of each!
Shop all of these at OneFortyThree.

It’s spaces like this that make me love design so much. This dining space feels natural yet modern and serene yet sophisticated. My eyes are drawn to the pops of color and the shape of the chairs. It seems like people are always on the hunt for quality and stable dining tables, so when you see a style like this, it solidifies that they are out there, waiting to be found.
