In case you were looking for a smart but casual way to embellish your workspace, here’s an interesting option, worth testing: the Modular Hood Lamp, designed by the Swedish studio, form us with love. This unique item, easy to assemble and adapt to any spatial requirements is supposed to add a touch of elegance and comfort. Simple, yet “into the spotlights”, the Modular Hood Lamp is a good acquisition for those who want to upgrade the looks of their office. The shelter-like form concentrates the light, keeping it uncluttered.
As the form us with love guys say, “hood is built around the emotional value of a shelter”. When you sit under the hood you relax and start to think differently, protected by the form and provided with the warm light you feel at ease’.” This curious three-piece modular light source is made of folded panels. You can replace them with ease and transform the entire ambience. Originally, the hood was designed for the Swedish lightning company, Ateljé Lyktan and presented last month during the Stockholm Design Week.

The Zero Gravity Wall Shelf below illustrates a perfect balance of practicality and design flair, mixing carefully placed toys with books in eye-catching colors.

Read on for some of our favorite inspiration rooms featuring cozy sunken living areas that we’d love to nestle up in. The soaring ceilings of this bright and airy Texas home are further exaggerated by its recessed seating area. The raw look of the wooden ceilings and concrete floors are softened by strategically placed pops of color and plush pillows.
