Ornate, metallic pendent lights drawing influence from the Middle East work to create balance within the gravity of this foyer's spiral staircase. Setting a black railing against otherwise neutral tones pull the eye down to the exquisite wood floor.
This stylish dining room and adjacent kitchen are the end result of a custom contemporary renovation of the home, a 1970s bungalow. Handcrafted Middle Eastern pendant lights hang over the dining table, while artifacts from the region grace the table.
Oversized candles on a contrasting table, Eastern influenced pendant lighting, striking wood floors, a spiral staircase and decorative wool rug create an exciting entry point to this home demonstrating how the foyer – a most often forgotten home component – can create a great first impression.
A kitchen island with built-in sink is positioned in the middle of this modern kitchen, which maximizes its space through the use of several wall and under-counter cabinets and drawers. Two pendant lights hang above the kitchen island, wall shelf allows for easy storage of cookbooks and other items.
A large purple wicker pendant light hangs above a white round dining room table, flanked by bamboo silver chairs cushioned in purple velvet. An arrangement of violets is in the middle of the table, which is anchored by a white fur rug.
Designers wanted to create a bright, open space for the homeowners, but the second wall in the kitchen was load bearing, so instead of taking it out, they maximized the kitchen's functional space by adding shelves for storage and display space and lower cabinets for counter space. To keep the space bright, under cabinet lighting was added, as well as a row of pendant lights running down the middle of the space.
These homeowners wanted their apartment to be unique and glamorous, so designers brought in rich materials such as the luxurious, leather sofas and the gilt and mirror coffee table in the middle of the space. Their favorite feature in the space, though, is the custom installation of multiple pendant lights. Designers found the baubles on Ebay and had them installed as the final, glitzy touch to this fantastic penthouse design.
