When you’re in need of a little downtime, nothing is better than curling up at home in a comfortable spot. Whether you’re reading a good book or simply enjoying a quiet moment, creating a cozy setting is key. In addition to an inviting place to sit, proper lighting will complete the soothing ambiance. 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.
Wireflow 3-D Hanging Lamp
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-paneled 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.
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.
Mayfair Floor Lamp
A cozy 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.
