Bright Ideas: Lighting Inspiration

Bad lighting is instantly recongnizable. Think about stark, flourscent classroom or airport lighting: Often cold, clinical, and harsh, the unwelcoming glows create spaces we'd rather rush from than relax in. But good lighting can have an equally strong effect in the opposite reading. See some of Haute Living's favorite fixtures here.

Staying Ahead of the Curve

The spectrum of sofa design has, for years, been polarized by two extremes. On one end, there's the over-stuffed, ornately upholstered and decorated traditional sofas. On the other, there's modular, extremely modern, and low-laying sofas. But, as living spaces become more multi-dimensional, design cannot be approached from one angle.  That's where circular sofas-- which sit somewhere between the two ends of the spectrum-- find their place.

Thinking Outside the Box By Redefining It

Storage can be surprisingly well-designed and become part of the interior landscape, rather than just a piece meant for holding and hiding our books, clothes, and gadgets.

USM's Haller system transforms the tradtional, boxy storage solutions into sleek, sophisticated options-- and offers more unconventional storage pieces.

Verpan Design in Space

In the midst of functionalist and minimalist Scandinavian design, Verner Panton was an explosion of color and personality.

At the time Panton was designing in Denmark-- during the 1960s and 70s --strong, clean lines, light woods, and tradition dominated the landscape. Panton, whose geometrical furniture designs for Arne Jacobsen's architectural firm had garnered early attention, wildly disregarded these tenets.

The simplicity of glass is communicated through exceptional technical and precision detailing, elimination distracting hardware and thus creating maximum style, pragmatism, and reliability.

Zeus Design in Space

Creativity is dynamic. Uninhibited, this heightened consciousness will swell, then retreat, then swell and retreat many times more. The individual creative process is a process of ebb and flow-- one that is often complicated, obstructed, frustrating. But when the individual creative process merges with other ideas, it naturally grows. Exposure to outside forces builds a larger communicative voice that is grander than the individual. For Zeus, the polyphany of creative voices was a deliberate decision in order to forge a distinct, post-modern movement. Continue reading to see how Zeus can enhance your project.
