Sometimes clean and simple really wins the race, especially when it comes to lighting. I typically prefer that lighting blend into a room rather than be the star, but these lamps from Blumen in France manage to play both cards well. They’re subtle enough to work well in a busy room but beautiful enough to warrant a closer look. You can click here for more information on the lights (just use your browser’s translator to view the page in English) or to contact Blumen about purchasing. xo,¬†grace
