A pair of clear glass table lamps bookend knickknacks atop a console table and a striking modern wall sculpture. The white piece of art provides contrast to the room's navy walls, while complementing the lampshades and decor.
A hand-planed buffet table separates the kitchen from the great room in this transitional home. Handmade light sculptures by artist Suzanne Derrer replace traditional lamps, giving the room a whimsical quality.
This space was the perfect blank canvas on which to layer interesting textures, patterns and accessories. The designer kept the fabrics and colors cool so they wouldn't overwhelm the artwork's bright colors. Furniture: Bernhardt and Hallmark; Rug: Missoni; Lamps: Global Views; Paint: Benjamin Moore
A beautifully finished wood cabinet gets an equally elegant tableau on top made of coffee table books, twin lamps and gold and metallic accents. A tray corrals necessities (there you are, keys!) into a tidy group, and stops them from looking like visual clutter.
Turn around and this golden crane lamp and lifelike dog sculpture may just start running the show. Paired with two silver sunburst mirrors and a contemporary console table, they make a tableau that's art museum-worthy.
