In a duplex, he placed a contingent of filigree orbs over a staircase; when a lights are on, shadows dance theatrically opposite a paneled accent wall.
Chin’s also a fan of Stickbulb, a lighting member combined by RUX studio in New York City. The “stick” is offering in several forms of timber propitious with an LED.

She hung Alvaro Catalan de Ocon’s PET Lamp Chandelier ($6,780 for 21 lights during pamono.com) in an all-white dining space. The brightly pigmented lights, unresolved on colored cords, move in an component of playfulness.
Other intriguing fixtures new to a marketplace occupy complicated record with a curtsy to classical design.

Calibrated LEDs gracefully expel light adult and down.
Jonathan Browning was desirous by ’60s French minimalist pattern for his Aquitaine series (starting during $419 during rhmodern.com), that facilities slim brass, nickel or bronze tapers sloping with faceted LEDs, dangling on black cord.
