When you’re in need of a little downtime, nothing is better than curling up at home in a comfortable spot.

Here, illuminating ideas for your relaxed nook.
Designed by Ramos & Bassols, the Duo ceiling light brightens an understated living room. Its grey steel surface and rich wood interior picks up the room’s color scheme, while the gently curving organic form adds warmth amid the spare silhouettes.
Recalling its name, the Halo Jewel hanging lamp by Martín Azúa adds an elegant accent to a seating area. The lean, linear frame gleams in a golden finish, its LEDs producing twin streaks of light that define the sofa and bathe it in a subtle light.
Sectional seating in a minimalist living space is brightened by a pair of Arik Levy’s Wireflow 3-D pendants. Black electrical cables trace an airy outline, in keeping with the pared-down aesthetic. Hovering overhead from nearly imperceptible cables, they bookend the sofas and create an intimate ambience.
Distilled to its essence, this Lievore Alther-designed pendant offers a minimalist, modern accent in a wood-panelled room. The classic round bulb paired with a disc-shaped shade directs light downward on the small side table, Tempo’s circular silhouette mirroring its round form.
Suspended between two sofas, Arik Levy’s North pendant unifies the living area with two lamps positioned at different heights for a dimensional feel. It’s simple, streamlined form offers a modern counterpoint to the tiled floor and ornate carved ceiling while washing the interior in a warm glow.
Tempo Wall Lamp
Cantilevered over the couch, the spare Tempo wall lamp illuminates the cushy seat. An adjustable rod offers precision lighting and the blown-glass diffuser features a progressively opaque bulb that emits a diffuse glow above the sectional.
Pin Floor Lamp
A pair of Pin floor lamps illuminate a cozy den. Perfect for reading, the svelte fixtures are dimmable with one or two adjustable heads that delicately arc over the sofa and chair. Pin’s geometric form exudes a playful feel that matches the casual mood of the space.
Mayfair Floor Lamp
A cosy corner bordered by a broad window offers the perfect backdrop for a quiet retreat. Brightening a built-in banquette is Diego Fortunato’s Mayfair floor lamp, a contemporary reimagining of the classic 19th-century French bouillotte table lamp. Its timeless form and sleek steel structure lend a refined look, while the optical sensor easily activates dimming of the LED light.
I.Cono Floor Lamp
Positioned next to a streamlined sofa, the I.Cono floor lamp by Lievore, Altherr, Molina features an angled stem and rotating head that’s ideal for unwinding with a favourite book. Its poised Scandinavian presence matches the interior’s unadorned feel.
Suite Floor Lamp
Standing next to a sofa, Suite by Jordi Vilardell and Meritxell Vidal does double duty as storage and a light source. The fixture is configured with shelves in different heights and directions, lending Suite the look of dynamic, geometric décor to complement the space. In addition to the small reading lamp, LED lights tucked beneath the shelving generate ambient lighting.
