Unique Statement Frankie Pendant Modules From Felt

Tue, Jul 7, 2015 | Lamps, Lights

Making a statement with lamps or lights is a cool trend today, and this lighting system is a perfect piece for rocking this trend. The original Frankie pendant, launched in 2013 comprised panels made from recycled acoustic felt that slot into triangular solid-ash arms, and now studio Designtree has added a corner module to its flat-pack. Extension panels and additional arms elongate the shade so it can house multiple bulbs. Launched this year, the new corner module introduces the possibility of 90-degree bends into the system. All three Frankie Pendant modules can be mixed and matched to create L- or X-shaped lamps in a variety of sizes.


Serene Minimalist Apartment With Copper Accents

Tue, Jul 7, 2015 | Minimalist home designs

This lovely serene apartment in Berlin is a recent project by the Polish architectural group LOFT. The style of the interiors is minimalist, black, grey and white with pretty copper accents. Besides tackling the interior layout and design, LOFT also designed and built some of the furniture and restored other pieces, too. There’s much light in the apartment, and I love how the designers used concrete and natural warm-colored wood. Black color isn’t used widely, it’s just for making accents; black mixes ideally with the shades of wood used and together they create that special luxurious feel.

This home in Cape Town, South Africa, belongs to a couple of artists, and I think it can be seen at first sight.

The mix of materials, styles and curated pieces in the living room demonstrate the owners’ unique voices in their fields. The kitchen is where the Victorian, mid-century and industrial aesthetics really mix. The owners make statement walls feel full with added objects that complement the feature, without pulling attention away from it.
