A beautiful concept has been chosen by the Polish design studio, AP DIZAJN in developing a peculiar object that embellishes every living space, spreading a sophisticated smooth light. The Hypnotic Lamp is a luminous panel that pleasantly redecorates a room by playing not only with the laws of physics, but also with the human perception. Inspired by a natural source of symmetry, the Dahila’s petals, the AP DIZAIN’s concept has been defined into an art exhibition object, a Hypnotic Lamp, targeting people who want to beautify their homes with some edgy exhibits. The symphony of hexagonal shapes, perfectly aligned arouse the curiosity and determine the viewer to fall into a deep relaxed state of mind.
The Hypnotic Lamp resembles a painting that sends inspiring warm light. The playful curvy shapes shrink to the center of the square. It embodies a spiritual energy by letting the eyesight immerse into a playful ring-shaped game, right in the middle of the square. The Hypnotic Lamp is composed of two concentric squares, each of them pointing some sort of undefined swirly shape. A truly stunning, yet peculiar object that injects a scent of mystic contemporary design. Could this be something you would choose for you home?
Create height with items such as plants, artwork and books. Alternate taller pieces with shorter items such as peite vases, as shown below in the A Beautiful Mess studio living room. Not sure where to start? Choose a cohesive look and go for it! The next shelf vignette featured at Emily Henderson showcases a “Desert New Age” style, which welcomes earthy tones, tribal patterns, succulents and mineral specimens, among other pieces. In fact, in the next image we see the exact same shelf, this time styled to create a Playful Scholar look featuring neutral, masculine colors. Note special touches such as a globe and a bust displayed in a cloche. Incorporate a few unique conversation pieces into your shelving display for added interest.
Vega Architecture’s design for the Busch Home in Lakewood, CO is a wonderful example of how a sunken living room can still maintain a sleek, modern look. By keeping the depth of the pit fairly shallow and using furniture with clean, wooden lines, the space still feels light and airy. A pop of warm, lighter colored carpeting also creates a nice texture change when paired with the harder but more durable tile used on the higher level. When Amber Flooring installed their engineered prefinished square edge Stilnovo-Afrormosia planks throughout the Los Gatos home, they didn’t forget the living area’s conversation pit. Now the space is lined with the warm material, making it the perfect spot to curl up around the fireplace.
