Austrian designer Rainer Mutsch has created a series of lights made of fiber cement for the manufacturer Molto Luce. Each individual luminaire shade is moulded manually from soft fiber cement: the shades get their stability through their slightly rippled geometry which eventually leads to a minimum of material thickness. We love the stylish outcome and believe so will you.
Fiber cement, originally developed by Eternit, is produced eco-friendly from natural resources like water and cellulose fibers. The material is highly durable and non-flammable. The Soft series consists of a wall light, a bar pendant light and a large pendant light. Each of the designs comes with an original appearance, perfectly suited for modern homes and even public spaces. The industrial feel can be complemented by themed furniture and arrangements. Find its raw elegance appealing? [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Molto Luce]
We now turn to top design bloggers such as Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, who has decorated her kitchen shelving with an array of pastel dishware. Don’t be afraid to mix function and style when it comes to your decorative shelves. Put useful items on display, but arrange them artfully. If the shelving is purely decorative, choose pieces carefully. Be selective, as this gives your shelves a curated, artful look, as shown by this DIY hoop shelf from A Beautiful Mess.
Some shelves are purely functional, while others leave a little bit of room for decorative flair! In fact, the decorative shelves featured in today’s post showcase a range of styling possibilities, from the minimalist to the overflowing.
