INSPIRATION BOARD

Less is more

Downlights are commonly misinterpreted to be a complete lighting solution. Though extremely valuable in a non-obtrusive, functional context, one should apply them to areas where light is due without aiming to make them a feature.

Know what to show

Pendants should be used as a means to highlight important areas in one’s space. Without them, the same space may seem dull or uninviting. Use the same pendant as a feature to help distinguish one space from another almost signalling to guests: “This is where the festivities occur”.

Glass in the bedroom

For some time it’s been trending to install pendants next to one’s bed to replace bedside table lamps. Though this minimalistic approach allows one to declutter the bedside table, be careful to choose a fitting which will not easily break when bumped. As with everything else, glass pendants have limited lifetimes and the glass shade may be discontinued if it suffers a blow and breaks.
