As a design lover, I really enjoy finding simple concepts executed in an elegant manner. These light installations by the talented industrial designer, Arik Levy, definitely fall under the ‘simple but elegant’ category. The chandeliers are meant to be thin sculptures that appear to be two dimensional line drawings and only identified as volumes as [...]

Because of our recent pursuit of [...]

Cocktail tables can get tricky sometimes. As much as I enjoy clean surfaces, boring cocktail tables can look a little sad and make your living room feel like a waiting room. Clever accessorizing is a great way to give your coffee and side tables a little more character, although it’s very important to respect the [...]

  We found the interiors by Yasunari Tsukada beautiful, utilitarian, unpretentious, and flexible. Simply good design. This particular work is for end…Link beauty salon, in Kitahorie Osaka, Japan. The wood lattice work along the right wall serves as work stations for seven people with multiple shelving options. The light application is as clever and minimal [...]

Though I love the polished, high-end look for homes, it tends to get a little saturated with neutral hues for my taste. There is no doubt that an elegant-modern style will always make the neighbors jealous, but you would still want it to feel like home, right? Color additions are excellent to create a casual [...]
