If you want to add an artistic touch to your kitchen or dining room and you’re looking for something a little unusual, then the Soup Can Lights are exactly for you.
Ever since the pop art movement emerged in the 1950’s the use of mass-produced items in a different context has become extensive. I am a known fan of this period, I love the style and techniques but I think that what I love the most is the fact that by changing the context of everyday objects our perception of their value is changed. Andy Warhol’s famous “Campbell’s Soup Cans” is perhaps one of the iconic symbols of this movement. Continue reading
These stylish pendant lamps are made from recycled cork, shedding a new light on the beauty of recycled material. Benjamin Hubert, who has previously designed hanging lamps made of concrete, has once again surprised us with an unusual material – cork.
Hubert is known for his rounded approach to design, taking into account not only the finished product but the manufacturing process as well. As with most modern designers today, along with form and function, sustainability and eco-friendly issues are also taken into consideration when designing new products. The beauty of these lamps is not only in their look but also in their unique production process. Continue reading

Since moving to a Greek island is out of the question I have found the next best thing – I can create my own personal sunny weather with the d-light huggable cushion. Continue reading

The dºlight light bubbles are so true to their name because they are delightful in so many ways. Whenever I re-decorate I always seem to have trouble deciding about the lighting fixtures. First I have to decide if I want overhead lighting or not, then if I want standing lamps, hanging lamps, table lamps, spot lamps….. in short so many decisions and this is before I’ve even tackled the subject of design and ambiance. This is why I love the concept of these light bubbles by designer Diana Lin. Continue reading
