A CLEVER TWIST ON MATERIALS

Contrary to their name, these Like Paper Lamps are completely made in cast in concrete. The one-of-a-kind lamps are uniquely designed by German designers Miriam Aust & Sebastian Amelung — each one of them made with their own set creases and folds. I particularly love how they look hanging in a set. Aren't they amazing? Enjoy the weekend!

A MODERN TWIST ON THE PAST

The industrial trend seems to be stronger now more than ever. All the new home decor collections have taken some sort of inspiration from this retro, rustic style. I personally love this look as it's way of bringing back a bit of the past to our homes. IKEA has truly kicked some butt with their new RANARP lighting line — a modern twist of the vintage industrial lamps. The beautiful fixtures are made of white powder-coated steel, brass-colored trimmings and textile covered wires to complete the look. From pendants to desk lamps, the whole collections is to die for.

REFLECTING SIMPLICITY

The secret to good design lies in the simplicity and functionality of products like The Reflector Lamp designed by Swede Andreas Martin-Löf. The small lighting fixture is put together by using off-the-shelf pieces attached to a handmade metal and marble base. It's a sharp-looking lighting fixture that makes a great accent piece for any room.

RELAXED SOPHISTICATON

There's nothing that makes me happier than a beautifully designed home collection, especially when created by world-famed designer Paola Navone. Well, perhaps delicious food, shopping and traveling. Ok, but back to what's making so excited today. The multi-talented Italian designer recently launched her tableware and furnishings collections exclusively designed for Crate & Barrel. All three collections, Como, Mallorca and Riviera, are "dedicated to many different houses... joyful and delicate, imaginative and poetic, classic and timeless." The collection has an air of simplicity and a relaxed sophistication that make the pieces an easy fit with any style. It's fresh and elegant at the same time. What can I say? I'm totally crushing on it. This is one not to be missed!

A KNACK FOR LIGHTING

I'm totally having a crush on these gorgeous lamps designed and handcrafted by artist and woodworker Ryden Rizzo. His lighting fixtures, sold at Allied Maker, are beautifully made by him in his Sea Cliff, NY studio. I personally love their simple yet elegant design and the perfectly balanced proportion between wood and metal. To me they're almost pieces of art. Happy weekend!

LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE

If you're a DIYer at heart and in search of a fun weekend project, I got one for you. I was recenlty in search of cloth-covered wire to rewire a couple of wall lamps I had bought when I suddenly hit the jackpot. I was jumping up and down of joy after coming across the Colorado-based Color Cord Company. Not only do they have the most extensive selection of cloth-covered wires offering 27 magnificent colors and patterns to choose from. But they also have ready-made kits and all the necessary accessories for you to get wildly creative with your lighting. There's only one problem: I'm having a hard time picking which color wire to buy. So what are you waiting for? Hurry and get started designing a fabulous pendant lamp for your home. Happy weekend!
