FORM & FUNCTION

Inspired by the timeless design of the light bulb, these minimalist pendants are refined to a beautiful abstraction. The Form pendants are designed by Studio Form Us With Love, in collaboration with Design House Stockholm, as tthree glass pendants blown in simple, geometric shapes—a circle, a rectangle and a triangle. However, the pendant's uniqueness comes from the interplay between the shapes. They can be hung together as a floating installations to give create more drama and add character to any room. How gorgeous would a grouping of these look over a dining room table? Divine!

A LOVE FOR LIGHTING

One thing I learned from my trip to Copenhagen and Stockholm this Summer was the importance of lighting in Scandinavian design, especially in interiors. Due to the long and dark Winter days, Scandinavians take pride in their lighting fixtures. Swede blogger Annaleenas displays her love for lamps by making this fab floor lamp. If you want to take a shot at making your own, all you need is a hanging lamp and a metal pipe to hold it. How cool is it?

CLASSIC SIMPLICITY

Sometimes the simplest things are the most lasting and memorable. Originally designed for the Hotel Astoria in Trondheim, Norway, the Topan pendant is a brilliant example of such simplicity. It was the first mass produced lamp by Verner Panton, later to be followed by the Flower Pot. Whether in its own or hung on a cluster, the Topan's classic coolness can be easily added to any decor to make a lasting impression.

BEAUTIFULLY MADE

I don't know if I'm an ax kind of guy, but for graphic designer Peter Buchanan-Smith this evocative tool sort of turned his world around when, after seeing the need for a better ax, founded Best Made Company. What started as a venue where he sold mostly axes, Best Made has become a go-to place for a variety of stylish accessories for the outdoors aficionado. His inventory includes a line of products such as wearable goods, bags, first aid kits, a popular limited edition map series and goodies for the home. I love how simple, yet beautifully designed all his products are, especially their classic aesthetics of yesteryear. Here are some of my Best Made faves.

HELLO GORGEOUS!

Danish furniture and home decor company Normann Copenhagen has a thing for lamps. They have an amazing collection and just recently added this quirky Hello floor lamp to their lighting family. Designed by the Swedish designer Jonas Wagell, Hello adds light and character to its surroundings through its simple, clear and playful character. Its futuristic design combines a large shade with an acrylic diffuser to create soft and pleasant light with a simple rod of solid birch. Normann is not only known for great lighting. Their furniture and home accessories are also quite fantastic. Every time I walked into a store in Copenhagen, I would see their goodies and just wanted to buy them all—except my suitcase wasn't big enough :( Happy weekend!!
