A neatly decorated living room in a gentle color scheme can only benefit from neon lights and their incredible talent of making the room seem more dynamic and lively! We love this styling found at Emily Mughannam.
Add it the idea of contemporary lighting fixtures doubling as sculptural and artistic pieces and the idea of an upgrade is even more appealing. Here are that we spotted at IMM Cologne 2017 – an event that sets the decorating trends each year. This is a visual feast you simply do not want to miss!
Even a quiet reading space will benefit from some neon lighting but perhaps – if aiming for a serene environment – opt for the lights of more subtle color and a neutral shape. Perfect for daydreaming when your head’s in the clouds only a little neon light hanging above you will suffice.
One of the biggest reasons for the new-found love for lantern-style lighting fixtures is essentially the classic paper lantern and its unique visual appeal. The giant paper lantern was initially crafted in China and then the Japanese perfected it and passed it on to the rest of the world!
Together with designers at Terry Carwardine reworked the light’s industrial 4-spring design adapting it to suit a domestic consumer market base. In 1935 the model 3-spring Anglepoise®️ Original 1227™ lamp was launched. Find out more about the Anglepoise®️ story here.
Grange created the noteworthy Type 75™ in 2004 having been invited by Terry to revise the design of the Model 75 a prototype designed by George Carawardine over 70 years before (Source: Design Museum). Grange’s Type75™ is a particular favourite with designers and architects (and writers too). A handsome model it sports modernist looks combined with graceful flowing lines.
