Colorful Wires & Lamps
A few years ago it came to designers’ minds that a lamp includes something besides a bulb and a lampshade – the wires – and started to paint them all possible colours. A lamp seems to be specially made for uniform interiors and their owners do not hesitate to tie their bright wires in knots and loops. Along contrasting wire of a floor or desk lamp can be fixed to the wall in some fanciful geometrical pattern, which will both decorate the wall and make your workspace neater and tidier.
Lamps made from household items
A lampshade can be easily made from home materials. In fact, fans of industrial artistic taste can try any kitchen utensils: old enamel funnels, graters or common mason jars.A desk lamp can be made in a few minutes by simply putting a garland into a retro jar or a beautiful vase. And again a garland can be wrapped around a long beautiful tree branch or an old staircase bannister to become an original lamp.
Groups of lamps
Instead of hanging a massive classical crown in the middle of the living room, it’s a nice idea to buy a few identical or similar small lamps and arrange them in an awkward bunch. One more nice option for big rooms with high ceilings is to arrange a few similar or completely different lamps in a group, close to each other. Such style looks especially great above round or square tables in dining room.
Edison light bulb
If simplicity is something that makes you tick and even most simple and laconic lampshades are not good enough for you, you can easily do with just a bulb – nowadays this won’t look ridiculous. Pay your attention to vintage-style models similar to Edison light bulbs and energy-efficient bulbs by Plumen that don’t need lampshades at all.
A pivoted desk of floor lamp is a common practice, but pendant and wall-mounted designs with pivots are so far quite rare. And they demand a special mention since they are almost perfect for any work area: from your workshop to your kitchen countertop. Having such a model mounted to any surface in your walk-in closet, kitchen or bathroom, you can easily change the light’s angle and direction, having a nice decorative item at the same time.
