Lighting Crush

I saw this beauty at Elte on my trip to Toronto for the design show. I love lighting that looks simple from afar but is far from simple with a secret relief inside. Oh if only I had a place for it. Had to share. Happy Monday. xo

Fun lighting, definitely a statement piece for the room. Have a great week.

Marcel Wanders Skygarden - so fun and fabulous! I also love the feeling of past (interior) vs. present (exterior).

I mean wow. I love how industrial it looks from far away and how feminine and detailed it is up close. Absolutely gorgeous!

How lovely! Something about that light reminds me of my grandma Heide and that makes me happy :)

Wow the detail on the inside is so cool!

That light is one of my favorites. Keep in mind however that I'm extremely biased. You see, not only do I happen to work at Elte, my great grandfather actually started the company more than ninety years ago. If that's not enough, I was also the one who bought that light for our showroom.

But anyway, I just wanted to leave a comment to thank you for featuring one of our products on your blog. It's an amazing blog you have and an equally amazing fan base. Their comments about this light are overwhelming.

I hope you had a great time in Toronto and at IDS. I don't know that we got a chance to meet at the show but please do ask for me the next time your at Elte or Ginger's. I'd be more than happy to say hello.

All the best,

Andrew.

I love that it looks modern from afar and vintage up close
